DC Charity Spotlight: Lucky Dog Animal Rescue
Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is an all-volunteer, non-profit animal rescue organization dedicated to saving the lives of homeless animals and educating the community on responsible pet ownership. Lucky Dog does not have its own facility. Instead, their dogs stay with temporary fosters (and occasionally boarding partners) while they wait to find their forever home.
They hold adoption events each week where you can see the Lucky Dogs strut their stuff, and we also arrange private meetings for adopters who fall in love with a pup’s internet photo.
Most Lucky Dogs come from high-kill shelters in Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. We work with shelter partners in low-income and rural areas where hundreds of highly-adoptable dogs are euthanized each month due to overpopulation problems, lack of spay/neuter education and inadequate funding. With the help of our dedicated volunteers and supporters, Lucky Dog rescues as many of these pups as possible.
