Can Can visits Silver Spring Day School as a Lucky Dog Ambassador
Can Can visited Silver Spring Day School with Lucky Dog volunteer Elissa Kurtz. They came to visit and to pick up all the items that were donated by the children in Ms. Alison's and Ms. Veronica's class. Can Can is an American Pit Bull Terrier that came from South Carolina and she is about 1.5 years old. She was great with all of the children and loved the treats that the children made for her. Thanks for all the donations and let's hope Can Can finds a home soon.
Lucky Dog featured in a rescue dog-themed Girl Scout meeting
Lucky Dog foster and now Lucky Dog owner Bess and her good friend and fellow dog owner London led a rescue dog-themed Girl Scout meeting in Arlington. They gave a presentation for troop members to share some facts about rescue organizations and fostering. For their activity, they had the troop make fleece dog toys to donate to Lucky Dog. Each troop member was given information on Lucky Dog, the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, and ways their families might get involved in volunteering, fostering and even adopting. Bess and London and other members of their troop presented the toys to Lucky Dog when they came out to volunteer at another "lucky" event, this time in Alexandria - the St. Patrick's Day Parade Fun Dog Show on March 1. Click here to see the full article about their fabulous meeting. Finally, here are some photos of the girls at their Girl Scout meeting, the dog toys they made, and Bess' Lucky Dog Jacy wearing her own Girl Scout uniform!

We are looking for a Lucky Dog Kid’s Club Mascot, and want you to create him or her! We are looking for a creative drawing of a dog that we can use to put on our Lucky Dog Kid Club webpage each quarter to promote more kids like you to help out our rescue pups. Besides a creative drawing of our mascot, we will need a name and some fun facts about him or her like what is his/her favorite food, favorite activity, favorite napping spot and anything else you would like us to know about him/her. We would also like 2-3 sentences on why rescuing a dog is important. The winner will have his/her mascot displayed on our Kid’s Club webpage and will receive a small prize with the Lucky Dog Logo on it! Click here to see the creative and wonderful entries.

Join the Lucky Kids Club!
Are you someone under the age of 18 that would like to put their energy towards helping dogs in need? We would love to have your help.
Lucky Kids Club was designed to involve kids in our mission of rescuing homeless and abandoned animals, primarily dogs from rural high-kill shelters where they don’t have a good chance of survival. We want to see the day that there are NO MORE HOMELESS PETS! We can’t do it without you!
We are always looking for innovative ways to educate, involve and share our wonderful experiences with kids – the next generation of Lucky Doggers!
Do you have a group or club that would like to come up with a project to help out?
We are looking for Lucky Kids like you! No experience necessary!
Depending on how old you are and your skills we have fun ways for you to help! Here are just a few ideas:
- Fundraising events – car washes, dog washes, and bake sales (dog or human treats!)
- Computer Skills- making flyers, social networking, etc
- Education Projects- we can help with classroom projects to help educate your friends to responsible pet owners and to get them involved in rescuing animals that would not otherwise survive
- Supply Drives – we are ALWAYS in need of food, collars, leashes, beds, etc
- Making items for the dogs – adoption bandanas, shelter beds to keep them off concrete floors, etc
If any of this sounds interesting to you, please contact us at email@example.com
Although you must be 18 years of age to handle a dog at our adoption events, kids are welcome to attend with their parents and help talk up the dogs, fill water bowls, and protect the puppies.
