Financial Report

Lucky Dog Rescue, Inc. was incorporated on 7/13/2010. The adoption fee for our very first dog – Stella – enabled us to pay for our incorporation fee and for our PACFA License. The next big step was Fundraising so we could buy food and cover vet bills. The First Annual “Food for Furries/Dogs and Dubs” was born. The brainchild of our current Fundraising Coordinator Cara Marshall and in Cooperation with the “Suicidal V-Dubbers” Car Club was born. The money was raised under Dog Scouts of America Troop 203 as we did not have the means yet to apply for our 501(c)3 status. The troop then paid for dog food until the amount raised was spent.
