ORGANIZATION: Lucky Dog Animal Rescue


Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is having an adoption event Sunday, July 31st at the Potomac Yard PetSmart, 3351 Richmond Hwy, Alexandria, VA 22305.

Come spend the afternoon with a Lucky Dog! We need dog handlers to hold a dog's leash during our adoption event and talk up the dog to potential adopters during the event. We also need drivers to drive Lucky Dogs (and Lucky Cats!) to and from our adoption event. Handler check-in is at 11:15 am (dog/cat check-in starts at 11:45 am). You should plan to stay until 3:30pm.

When we receive your inquiry about volunteering, we'll send you a confirmation email and then closer to the event date we'll send some additional information specific to volunteering at that event.

*You must be at least 18 years old to handle a dog and anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent present at all times (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


5159 Lee Hwy, Arlington, VA 22207, US

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!
