Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is a volunteer-powered, foster-based dog and cat rescue in the Washington, DC metro area. They saved over 16,000 animals since their founding in 2009 but have had to alter almost all of their programs since the start of COVID and are continuing to work with more rural, high kill shelters around the US. Previously relying on their weekend adoption events and averaging a monthly transport number of 100-150 animals from our partners — They have since gone completely virtual and have managed to save / commit to nearly 700 dogs and cats from just March 16th to May 2nd. That’s 3-5x their average. They have successfully placed over 600 of them in adoptive homes as well. It’s been an unbelievable problem to have as well with the number of foster and adoption applications outweighing the actual number of dogs and cats they have available but they are thrilled to be able to continue to help shelters in need!
