D.C. Chapter Lucky Dog Animal Rescue Service Event - April 7

Sunday, April 7
11:30 a.m. – 2:15 p.m.

PetSmart


6100 Arlington Boulevard
Falls Church, Va.

The Washington, D.C. Chapter will volunteer for National Month of Service at Lucky Dog’s April adoption event at PetSmart in Falls Church. Volunteers will receive a brief orientation beginning promptly at 11:30 a.m. and will be assigned to handle fostered dogs, fill water bowls and represent Lucky Dog to potential adopters.

Catharine Matthews ’05 has been a volunteer with Lucky Dog Animal Rescue for nearly three years. Lucky Dog rescues dogs from high-kill shelters in Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. Two of the shelters euthanize dogs on Friday allowing each dog only a five day opportunity to be rescued. One of these shelters is located inside the county penitentiary which allows little chance for the dogs being adopted.

Children have to be at least 12 years old to volunteer with a parent, and 18 years old to handle a dog on their own.

This event is limited to 20 volunteers.

Advanced registration is required by Monday, April 1. To register, email elonindc@yahoo.com.
