Our Mission

Not every pup is lucky enough to have a forever home. That's where we come in. Lucky Pup Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established for the purpose of re-homing dogs in need. We believe that all dogs deserve a safe and happy forever home regardless of breed or where they are from. Our mission

is to find the best match of forever family so that the humans and their canine buddies will have a long happy 

life together. First, dogs come into one of our foster families where they learn house manners, become comfortable with newexperiences, and get their needs met while being assessed to help us in making that special forever match. We are based in southern Maine,

but we do not have a physical shelter



We are proud to say we have found permanent homes for more than 2000 dogs since January 2008. Our return rate is extremely low, under 5%. We work with local New England dogs who need new homes and we partner with overcrowded shelters and rescues in the southern United States.

Our Featured Fundraiser

Abby's babies new.jpg
Abby mama.jpg

Abby and her Eight puppies need our help! Abby eluded rescuers who were trying to catch her and gave birth to her babies under a house, staying out of reach until her puppies were mobile and exploring and were able to be caught. When our southern partner rescuers got to Abby she had a trap on her foot and when removed, it took part of her foot with it. In spite of all, this wonderful mama made sure her babies were safe and nourished until humans could help her. We would like to help them but the cost of their care is over $3,000. This includes vaccinations, deworming and preventions for all nine of them, spay and neuter, transport, and additional care for Abby that includes heartworm treatment (because of course she is positive) and further care for her foot. Please consider a small donation to help with this special family.

Our Featured "Happy Tail"

Avery really hit the jackpot when she was adopted in 2015, this tiny junior rescuer is the boss of her, and Avery could not be happier. If every dog and every child could experience this same joy the world would be a better place.
