WHAT IS A LUCKY DOG?
A LUCKY DOG IS A RESCUED DOG.
Lucky dogs are rescued from the Hutchinson Animal Shelter. These dogs have been abandoned by their owners or were found wandering on the streets. Many of the dogs chosen for the Lucky Dog Program would have been euthanized if not rescued. All they need is love and training. These dogs are lucky because this is a second chance for them. They are temperament tested and only friendly dogs are entered into the Lucky Dog program.
A LUCKY DOG IS A TRAINED DOG.
Lucky Dogs receive training from inmates at the Hutchinson Correctional Facility. The dogs are taught basic obedience commands and learn to come, sit, lay down, and stay. They are housebroken, crate trained, and are taught to walk on a leash.
This is a second chance for the lucky dogs, and is also a second chance for the prisoners. Inmates selected to participate in this program are given the opportunity to give back to their community by helping to train dogs that would likely otherwise be euthanized. The inmates that train the dogs are selected based on their performance in prison. They must be on their best behavior in order to participate in the program.
A LUCKY DOG IS A HEALTHY DOG.
Lucky dogs receive good health care before you adopt them. Once they are rescued from the animal shelter, an appointment is made with a vet and the dog receives a variety of services including:
> Spay or Neuter > Heartworm testing/treatment and Preventative HeartGuard
> Rabies Vaccine > Frontline prevention for fleas and ticks
> Bordetella Vaccine
