Since 2010, Lucky Pup has rescued medium and small breed dogs (along with a few BIG mutts too!) from Southern California's highest kill shelters in the counties
north of San Diego. Dogs have been transported into our rescue.

We're a small rescue founded in San Diego, California. Our dedicated team of volunteers save shelter dogs from death row throughout Southern California's many high and quick kill shelters
 We pride ourselves in knowing that we have rescued some of the most vulnerable, desperate, injured and ill dogs in these shelters.
Even dogs that other rescues overlook because of behavior or expensive vet care that is needed. We are a dedicated team of

volunteers, fosters, transporters and donors. 

Christine and Steve Haslet, who founded Lucky Pup Dog Rescue have created a volunteer based rescue, where wonderful things happen for the dogs who are rescued, their adopters and the volunteers who help to make this happen. Grandparents of ten, Christine is a retired RN and was portrait photographer for thirty years. Mister Steve is a Wedding Officiant and has married over 3500 couples since 1987.

Once we work our magic~ our happy, loving, healthy, adoptable dogs find incredible homes. By choosing to adopt a shelter dog from us, or any rescue for that matter, know that you are part of the solution to a heartbreaking problem. You are offering a second chance to these deserving dogs by supporting our life saving work. 

By sharing the story of our work, rescuing, adopting, spaying/neutering, fostering, donating or volunteering we can work together to reduce the
​number of dogs that are killed every day. 

And as we can, we are also using our resources to assist other small rescues with their life saving work. Unfortunately, we are NOT taking any relinquishments at this time. 

Thank you for your support of our small neighborhood dog rescue: Lucky Pup Dog Rescue

Changing lives . . . one little dog at a time !
