Here at Lucky Dog Rescue, we are just a very small group of volunteers that are dedicated to saving those that nobody else is able or willing to save. We only take in dogs that have run out of time on death row that no other rescue has offered to take. Without Lucky Dog, over 500 dogs that were slated for death would have never made it out alive of the high-kill shelters they came from. Hundreds of dogs are now living in wonderful forever homes...dogs that would have never had that chance had it not been for Lucky Dog.

We save the dogs that most people consider as the "left-over" dogs. They are dogs that are left without rescue after the cute and highly adoptable dogs and puppies are taken by other rescues. Therefore, the dogs that we usually take in to our rescue are sick, injured or are considered hard to place because of their breed, age or color. At Lucky Dog, we feel that every dog deserves the chance to find a wonderful forever home and we do not discriminate against any dog because of their breed, medical condition, age or color. Every dog that is brought into our rescue receives all necessary medical care and full vetting including a spay/neuter.

Because many of the dogs that we take in are sick or have injuries requiring surgical care, the cost of saving these lives comes at a huge expense. We also currently have many dogs in paid boarding because of the lack of foster homes available and that is also very costly. We receive no funding and rely solely on donations to continue saving lives....with your help we will be able to continue our efforts and save even more dogs that were left behind to die!!!

Your donation will allow us to continue to provide for the many dogs that are in our rescue while they await to find a loving forever home. Any amount, large or small, helps us save the lives of these forgotten dogs. 100% of all donations that we receive go towards the vetting and boarding costs of these dogs so that we can keep them healthy and safe until we can find them a forever home.

Furthermore, we do have many dogs that are currently in paid boarding. If you are interested in fostering for Lucky Dog Rescue so that one of our sweet pooches can get out of the kennel and into a loving home environment until a forever home can be found, please contact Melia Carter at melia88@comcast.net for more information or for a foster application.

Please also visit the following website to view the dogs that we currently have available for adoption. Many of them are in need of foster homes and all are looking for a loving forever home to call their own: http://www.adoptapet.com/shelter77868-pets.html

Even if you are unable to make a donation, foster or adopt at this time....you can still help! You can share and cross-post the dogs that we have that are in need of foster and adoptive homes...anything that you can do to help us find the wonderful homes that these dogs deserve would be appreciated :)

Thank you, the Lucky Dogs and the Lucky Dog Rescue Volunteers
