Lucky Dog Animal Rescue’s Third Anniversary Party

In just three years, Lucky Dog Animal Rescue has saved more than 4,200 dogs. Help them celebrate at a family- and dog-friendly BBQ this Saturday, June 2, in Potomac, Md.

From 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., dogs get to play off leash in a fully fenced 1 1/2-acre yard, try their skill at an agility course, sample yummy snacks and doggie ice cream at the Dogma Bakery treat bar, and get their picture taken by a professional dog photographer.

Human guests will enjoy a delicious BBQ in addition to the quality play time with their pooch pals!

It looks like this event is a blast for all, check out the fun pictures on Lucky Dog’s Facebook page.

Tickets are $25 per person or $55 per family (up to four people) in advance, $30 per person or $65 per family at the door.
