Who We Are

Lucky Paws is a non-profit corporation, dedicated to serving the community and animals, for the betterment of all lives. The mission of Lucky Paws is to helpreduce the numbers of unwanted pets. Through education and community outreach, we will work to help people keep their pets and promote the importance of spaying and neutering. By taking unwanted animals nearing euthanization, we will rehabilitate and better the lives of animals, and place them into loving, well-matched homes. We will strive to be well known in our community as a corporation of integrity and one that makes a positive difference in the lives of others. We believe in the possibility that through education, awareness and inspiration, we will one day have more loving homes than homeless pets.
