Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Headquartered in Los Angeles, California, the Lucky Dog Foundation is a unique non-profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of animals and enriching the lives of people. The Foundation is a dynamic, evolving institution that is an agent of change for the animal welfare world.
We donít have a brick and mortar structure- rather we house our animals in private foster homes throughout the greater Los Angeles area. We have an extensive network of fosters whom we train and support to best take care of the animals until forever homes are found.
We primarily exist to support the shelters but our animals come from all different situations, including owner surrenders. Sometimes our job isnít just to secure an animal and to take it under our wing, but instead help someone keep their pet, with advice and training; to advocate spay and neuter, so we can limit the number of animals that may need our help later; as well as to convey the plight of these animals in need, so the community too, might realize that their help is needed- and valuable. It doesnít take a great amount of time or energy to support animal rescue- just motivation to do your part!
About Our Rescue Group:Lucky Dog Foundation encompasses the shared mission among many rescue groups to save animals from high kill shelters, but also provides help where the need is the greatest. Just this year we donated over 1500lbs of dog food to other small local organizations and the homeless in Los Angeles County. In August and October we offered free microchip clinics to the community. We educated the public on pet first aid, handing out free reference books. We provided free training sessions with our organization's trainer to help keep dogs in their homes who would have otherwise been surrendered due to correctable behavior issues.
All the cases above have something in common. These dogs are all now Lucky Dogs with the help of the Lucky Dog Foundation.
Lucky Dog Foundation resources are used to provide education and awareness regarding animal abuse, animal abandonment, spay and neuter and back yard breeding. We strive to provide current and new pet owners with tools to be the best guardians for their animal companions. We want every dog to be a lucky dog, no matter where or how they got their start.

Our Adoption Process:We do not have a brick and mortar shelter- our animals are housed in private foster homes- and an approved application is required before meeting with any of our available pets!

Most new dogs will require training regardless of age. Please make sure you and your family are ready for the expense, work, and commitment needed to ensure a successful adoption. While we try to pre-screen medical and temperament issues before placing an animal for adoption, some behaviors or conditions can go undetected. We will be happy to help in any way should this happen, but cannot guarantee health or temperament. The adoption procedure involves these steps:
1. Complete an application.
2. Interview with one of our volunteers.
3. Have a home inspection and get-acquainted meeting with the pet.
