Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Headquartered in Los Angeles, California and Las Vegas, Nevada, 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.

The Lucky Dog Foundation does not place animals on hold, but completes adoptions with the first qualified household. Bringing a new companion animal into the family is a decision which requires careful consideration. We ask adopters to make a commitment for the life of the animal so itís important all family members and resident canines (if adopting another canine) are compatible with one another. Adoption specialists can facilitate a meet and greet at a convenient public meeting place after an application has been received and approved.

Adoption fees:
Puppy under 6 months $400*
Dog over 6 months and under 18 months $350
Dog over 18 months and under 3 years $300
Dog over 3 years of age $250

Adopt a bonded pair, littermate of foster buddy and receive $50 of suggested donation!

*BONUS: All adopted pets receive a free veterinary visit, microchip registration, pet insurance and additional money saving coupons for their new furry family member

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
