Service Opportunity: Lucky Dog Animal Rescue Dog & Cat Adoption Event
Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is a volunteer-powered nonprofit dedicated to rescuing homeless, neglected, and abandoned animals from certain euthanasia and finding them loving forever homes. We educate the community and all pet parents on responsible pet parenting, including the importance of spay/neuter, obedience training, and good nutrition.
Most Lucky Dogs come from high-kill shelters in Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Puerto Rico. 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. We also help some international animals in need, including dogs rescued from the meat trades in Thailand & South Korea, dogs from the streets of Kosovo, and dogs displaced by natural disasters in the Caribbean. In 2017, Lucky Dog placed 1,757 dogs and cats into adopted homes.
Successful Lucky Dog adoptions depend on multiple and strong relationships with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, trainers, and boarding facilities. Through these relationships we are able to rescue hundreds of animals every year, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes.
Transportation: Free parking is available on-site. The closest metro station is the Twinbrook Metro Station.
Volunteer Roles: Help to handle our dogs while they meet prospective adopters during a large adoption event. Some of these dogs will head off to their forever home during the event while others will meet potential adopters for the first time. Volunteers can expect to be outside for the duration of the adoption event so please bring water and dress for warm weather.
RSVP: Please send an email to Emily.firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join in this event. We look forward to helping Lucky dogs and cats find their forever homes!
