Lucy to the Rescue!

Lucy the Rescue Dog Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We offer financial assistance grants to family owned pets in need of lifesaving emergency care whose caregivers cannot afford the full cost of treatment. 

When we are contacted we send "Lucy to the Rescue" and financially help as many pets as possible. This is all because we have a wonderful support system.
