Our Lucky Dog Ambassadors are a constant inspiration to our entire rescue, and we are especially grateful for the donations made by the Colonial Forge EMT Program, in honor of Chelsea Favreau who was killed in a car crash in January. Her sister, Bailey, is a former student of the EMT program and the family generously asked for donations to animal shelters and rescue organizations in lieu of flowers. These dedicated students collected several boxes of food (both canned and dry), treats, toys, bedding, collars/leashes, etc. and our entire Lucky Dog family is so thankful for their support!
