ORGANIZATION: Lucky Dog Animal Rescue

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 888 people are interested

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is having an adoption event at the PetSmart in Sliver Spring (12020 Cherry Hill Rd, Silver Spring, MD 20904) on Sunday, August 27th. Come hang out with a dog, get some fresh air and, help lots of worthy dogs find a new family and get a second chance at a great life. Volunteer as a handler at Lucky Dog's Adoption Event.

Volunteers need to arrive at 11:15am for orientation and plan to stay until 3:30pm. Being a volunteer is a very rewarding and simple job. Once you arrive at the event, we will let you know what help is needed at the time: handling dogs, getting water for water bowls, or something else that may be more tailored to the specific event. If you are assigned to handle a dog, we give you that dog's bio containing any information we know about the dog; you then help show the dog off to any potential adopters. Don't worry--the dog does all the hard work by being his/her adorable self. There will be lots of members from our rescue there to help you answer any questions. No matter what task you are assigned, just know that we wouldn't be able to rescue and adopt out the Lucky Dogs without the help and support of willing volunteers like you!!

Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent present at all times (and if assigned a dog to handle, the parent must be the one physically holding the dog's leash). Event is held outside, so please dress appropriately.

About Lucky Dog Animal Rescue

Mission Statement

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals, primarily dogs from high-kill shelters and owners who can no longer care for them. By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, trainers, and boarding facilities, we are able to rescue hundreds of animals every year, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes. We also serve as a resource to our community and all pet owners by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership, including the importance of spay/neuter, positive behavior training, and good nutrition.


About Us

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is an all-volunteer, non-profit animal rescue organization dedicated to saving the lives of homeless animals and educating the community on responsible pet ownership. Lucky Dog does not have its own facility. Instead, our dogs stay with temporary fosters (and occasionally boarding partners) while they wait to find their forever home. We hold adoption events each week where you can see the Lucky Dogs strut their stuff, and we also arrange private meetings for adopters who fall in love with a pup's internet photo. Our volunteers are more than just volunteers, and our dogs are more than just dogs. We are a family. And we welcome you to become a part!
