Every 2-3 weeks, a big transport of dogs rolls up to DC from South Carolina, bringing 50-60 new Lucky Dogs ready to find their forever homes.  Wouldn't you love to be part of the welcoming party??

When the dogs arrive, we need help taking them for walks off the van, giving them water, and getting them fitted with our special no-slip martingale collars and Lucky Dog ID tags.  There is nothing like the joy of a dog when he or she leaps off the van giving kisses along the way!

If you want to help welcome our dogs off our transports, please fill out the volunteer questionnaire and email it to

We also need people to overnight foster the night the transport arrives.  Sometimes our adopters or our full time fosters have a conflict and cannot make it to transport, or our overnight fosters are absolutely critical for these pups!  If your interested in overnight fostering, please download our foster questionnaire and email it to


Sometimes our fosters need a hand giving their foster dogs a ride to or from an adoption event or two and from the vet.  We also need help getting our dogs to and from our partner boarding facilities.

If you are 16 years of age, have a valid drivers license and proof of insurance, you could mean the difference between life and death for one of our dogs!  If you might have time during the day or on a weekend to give a Lucky Dog a lift, we need you!  Please download our volunteer questionnaire and email it to
