BENEFITING: Lucky Dog Animal Rescue
EVENT DATE: Nov 22, 2014
Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is a volunteer run animal rescue that saves homeless and abandoned dogs and cats from certain euthanasia. With no boarding facility or shelter of their own, Lucky Dog holds events across the District, Maryland and Virginia. Lucky Dog seeks not only to place dogs in loving homes, but also to educate dog owners about responsible pet ownership.
One reason I love this particular rescue organization is that they save stray mixed-breed dogs, often called satos, from the streets of Puerto Rico. Brian and I visited there for our honeymoon in 2013 soon after we got our dog, Sienna, and the shelters there were so overcrowded that they were coming to local restaurants in the evening and giving away puppies. Meanwhile, we saw countless dogs living on the streets. Lucky Dog is able to bring some of those Puerto Rican satos to DC homes for foster care and adoption!
Please help me to save dogs from kill shelters and bring them to loving homes in the DC area.
