Lucky Dog Animal RescueThe Lucky Dog Animal Rescue (Washington, D.C.) 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, their dogs stay with temporary fosters (and occasionally boarding partners) while they wait to find their forever home. They 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.

SPCA of Anne Arundel CountyThe SPCA of Anne Arundel County is the largest and oldest animal welfare organization in Anne Arundel County. They provide shelter and humane care for homeless animals in need and work as advocates for animal welfare in our community.

As a result of our efforts in 2014, they achieved a record high life-saving rate of 98 percent - one of the highest in this country - a remarkable achievement as they accept animals others turn away.
