You will no doubt be seeing DC's attractions in a unique way with some new two legged and four legged friends by your side. Our Lucky Dogs are excited to meet you. Having been rescued from shelters where they were abandoned or found as strays, these pups are thrilled to meet new friends and show the world how much love and excitement that have to share. 100% of funds raised go to our Lucky Dogs & Cats.
