Author:  Paris Hollingsworth -- Lucky Dog Executive Assistant and Volunteer Post Date:  Tuesday, July 2, 2024 I had a new house, new husband, and all the new appliances from our registry but I knew something was definitely missing from my life. About 2 weeks later, I saw a friend make a Facebook post of puppies that were malnourished and needed homes and this was it. I wanted the runt of the litter and spent the next couple of months nursing her back to health. Tipps has been with me for 4 years now and has been  ..read more

Author:  Raunak Ghawghawe -- Data Coordinator at Lucky Dog Animal Rescue Post Date:  Wednesday, June 5, 2024 Growing up in India, I witnessed the harsh reality that strays face there. The brutality against strays is staggering—over 35 million stray dogs face daily struggles, from hunger to maltreatment in India alone. It’s heart-wrenching. Gandhi once said, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." And I believe that the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man. These wo ..read more

Author:  Maria Hughes -- Lucky Dog Foster and Volunteer Post Date:  Thursday, May 2, 2024 I became involved with Lucky Dog Animal Rescue in November 2013. My daughter was looking to adopt a dog. She had recently lost her 10-year-old Boxer to cancer. My daughter had a weakness for short snout dogs and Lucky Dog had a Pug available. We decided to go to a Sunday event at the Petsmart near our home. When we showed up the Pug was not there but as we were leaving, we spotted Sprout, a Brussel Griffon/Border Collie mix. It was love at first sight. My daughter applied and two days later sh ..read more

My Journey Into Rescue -- It All Began by Begging for A Dog!

Author:  Peyton Campuzano -- Social Media & Web Specialist Post Date:  Tuesday, January 9, 2024 The begging began at 8 years old. My kid brother and I pleaded with our parents to get a dog for months. They had both grown up with dogs and had many throughout their lives so it wasn't as if they weren't against the idea. However, they wanted to wait until we were old enough to help with the responsibilities of having a pet. They finally caved when I was in 4th grade and we adopted Lily, a Belgian malinois mutt, from our local shelter. She was the runt of the litter and very timid ..read more

Author:  Leah Wolfe -- Contracts Volunteer, Foster, Transport Driver, & More! Post Date:  Thursday, November 9, 2023 I am pretty sure that on Sunday, March 27, 2022 I was saved; this is the day I met Lucky Dog Animal Rescue. I wanted to make friends and love animals so I thought, “Why not go spend the day with a dog and help them find their forever home?". Colita was my first, but far from my last. My adventure has taken some turns that I never expected, and always enjoy. During that first event at the Silver Spring PetSmart with Colita I realized that this is something I ..read more

Author:  Perry Meade -- Dog and Puppy Foster Post Date:  Tuesday, October 3, 2023 I have loved animals, dogs specifically for as long as I can remember. I begged my parents for a dog, every time we walked past an adoption event, I wanted to rescue all the dogs. We had pets growing up and they were such a huge part of my life. When I went to college I volunteered at a local animal shelter since I couldn’t have a dog of my own. My mom always said I needed a diploma and a job before I got a dog but I told her it sounded way better when you said diplomas and dogs. I graduated and the f ..read more

Author:  Codie Hammond -- Dog Adoption Coordinator and Foster Post Date:  Tuesday, September 5, 2023 From a young age, my family have always enjoyed companionship of rescue German Shepherds. Growing up in a household where four-legged friends were not just pets but cherished family members, I loved coming home from school to cuddle up with our dogs. The German Shepherd we rescued while I was in High School was a particular favorite of mine. While we were still looking for a new pup to join our home, I said wanted to name our new dog Sadie. My parents insisted that you name a dog on ..read more

Author:  Allie Huyghe -- Cat Foster Extraordinaire Post Date:  Wednesday, August 2, 2023 If you had told me 2.5 years ago that I would have 40 cats cycle through my 600 sq. feet apartment in the next 2.5 years, I would have said you were absolutely out of your mind. Not because I didn't like cats ... I thought cats were fine ... sometimes. But because I've always considered myself a dog person, and quite frankly, I had never had a cat. Plus, I was allergic ..read more

Author:  Hollis Lampe -- Foster Coordinator and Foster Post Date:  Tuesday, July 4, 2023 To be honest, the story of my journey into rescue isn't very easy for me to write. Like many of the wonderful people that I work with in the animal welfare community, I've spent a lifetime loving animals. My childhood was heavily colored with experiences that included a variety of creatures, including ducks, chickens, rabbits, small mammals, cats, and dogs. But I never intended to dedicate my life to helping homeless pets ..read more
