Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is having an adoption event at Rockville Petco - 1507 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852 on Sunday, July 26. Can you help lots of worthy dogs find a new family and get a second chance at a great life by volunteering at an adoption event?
Volunteers need to arrive at 11:15am 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 and then you 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 you aren't sure about. 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!!
Must be at least 18 years old to volunteer and 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 to physically hold the dog's leash). Event is held outside, so please dress appropriately.

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.
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!
