***Lucky Dog is in the running to win an extra $10,000 from Best Friends IF we are the top fundraising network partner at the end of October. Please help us reach that goal!!!***
Your Donations Matter!! See how YOU are helping the victims of Hurricanes Maria, Irma and Harvey:
- On September 27th, Lucky Dog sent 3,515 pounds of dog and cat food to San Juan -- directly into the hands of our Puerto Rico Partners. It has been distributed throughout the island to rescuers in need.
- On October 5th, we are sending an additional 3,000 pounds of food!
Irma and Harvey
- On September 23rd, Lucky Dog brought in in 25 dogs from Texas, dogs either found during the storm or surrendered by owners after the storm passed.
- On September 9th, we took in 88 animals impacted from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Every one of them went home to a volunteer foster!
This is ONLY possible because of your support!
In 2009, when I founded Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, I never dreamed that we would save more than 10,000 animals in 8 short years. But, then, I never would have dreamed to have people like YOU supporting me.
Every day, Lucky Dog fights on behalf of the thousands of homeless and abandoned pets get dumped at high kill shelters. Those that get out are the Lucky Ones -- and their Luck is dependant on YOU.
The amazing volunteers at Lucky Dog work hard every day to ensure that every dog we rescue from a kill shelter has a chance at a loving forever home. They can only do it with YOUR support.
Every dollar we raise during Strut Your Mutt goes towards our life-saving mission. Every dollar we raise insures that puppies like Jaxon and Japser can be rushed to the hospital to battle parvo virus. (They survived!). Every dollar we raise means sweet dogs like Greta, who needed her leg amputated to address a painful birth defect, get the medical care they need to live pain free. Every dollar we raise means that Lucky Dogs have access to monthly prevantitiaves, leashes, collars, trainers, routine and non-routine vet appointments and, perhaps most importantly, spaces in the transport van.
In short, every dollar we raise is another life saved.
Please, take a moment to support our dogs and cats .... You won't regret it!
My Personal Web Log
Hurricanes Harvey and Irma
This weekend, Lucky Dog welcomed in 88 animals impacted but Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
At 11 am yesterday, 13 dogs arrived from Texas -- shelter dog survivors of Hurricane Harvey who had no homes before the storm -- and even less chance after the storm.
At 2:30, more than 50 dogs came in from Florence, South Carolina. Because their shelter is a state evacuation site, we needed to move dogs out so that dogs impacted by Irma in the southern and coastal parts of the state would have a place to go. 25 evacuation dogs were brought in just after ours moved out.
And, finally, at 10pm we welcomed the last load of dogs - evacuees from Jacksonville Florida.
Our volunteers, our fosters, everyone showed up to make this work. And, because of the amazing team that is Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, all the dogs had a place to go for the night. And, all the dogs attended our adoption event.
THIRTY THREE were adopted this weekend. (And, fourteen "non-Hurricane" dogs were also adopted!) The rest are safe with boarding partners and fosters.
All of this was made possible because of your support!

A Successful Weekend
This past weekend, I traveled to Florence South Carolina to help our team run two incredibly important programs -- both funded with YOUR SUPPORT. We held a free "Spay Day" in which we spayed and neutered THIRTY SIX animals who would never have been altered otherwise. In fact, from one house alone, Lucky Dog altered five dogs, four cats AND took five puppies into our rescue for adoption.
We also provided a free vaccine clinic and vaccinated THIRTY community dogs who would never have received vaccinations otherwise.
Your support makes these programs possible. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
