What you'll do
Guided by Lucky Dog ambassadors, guests will join us at our Sunday adoption events where we have between 40-80 adoptable animals each week. These events happen EVERY Sunday at local pet stores in the DC area. Guests will begin their experience with donuts and coffee while learning more about what Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is and what rescuing lives is all about. Approximately 30 minutes before the event starts, you will be assigned your very own Lucky Dog to meet, play with and promote to potential adopters. Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is thrilled to share our passion for animal rescue during our unique weekly adoption events. Lucky Dog is a tremendous force in the DC community, and we are excited to have you join us. Of course, our Lucky Dogs are excited to meet you as well. Having been rescued from shelters where they were abandoned or found as strays, the Lucky Dogs are thrilled to meet new friends and show the world how much love and excitement that have to share. 100% of funds raised through this experience go to our Lucky Dogs & Cats. Everyone is welcome to enjoy the experience, though you must be over 18 years old to handle and hold the dog's leash for the event. Minors are welcome to stay with the pups and their families as long as there is one adult for every child in attendance.
