It’s the first day of the 12 days of Christmas!
Now that you’ve exchanged gifts with family and friends and are basking in the afterglow of the holiday season, why not play Santa to a very deserving DC area shelter or animal rescue league? Please, keep the spirit of giving going by donating goods or cash to help with their wonderful work saving and bettering the lives of homeless, abused and abandoned animals.
We’d like to introduce you to Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, located in Washington, DC. You may recognize Lucky Dog Animal Rescue from our weekly Shelter Sunday features.
About Lucky Dog Animal Rescue: Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals, primarily dogs from high-kill shelters and owners who can no longer care for them. By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, trainers, and boarding facilities, Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is able to rescue hundreds of animals every year, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes. Lucky Dog Animal Rescue also serves as a resource to our community and all pet owners by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership, including the importance of spay/neuter, positive behavior training, and good nutrition.
