Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 11, 2013
Rover.com, the digital home dog boarding leader that connects dog owners with approved and reviewed dog sitters, is continuing to work with animal rescues across the country and this weekend is teaming up with Lucky Dog Animal Rescue for their first annual “Let’s Get Lucky” casino night.
“We are thrilled to be working with Rover.com!” said Mirah Horowitz, Executive Director of Lucky Dog Animal Rescue. “Pet care is a huge challenge for many of our adopters, and Rover.com offers them a win-win. Their dog gets loving in-home care, and they are giving back to help save other homeless and abandoned pets.”
All proceeds from the casino night, which is on Saturday, October 12, 2013 from 7-10 p.m. at Hotel Rouge (1315 16th St. NW Washington DC), will benefit Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, a volunteer-run 501c3 working to save dogs and cats from certain euthanasia. Every year, between three to four million animals are euthanized in shelters across the country. Both Rover and Lucky Dog Animal Rescue are dedicated to saving animals across the country and helping them find forever homes.
“Since the day we launched, working with animal rescues has been a huge priority for our company,” said Susan Koehler, CMO of Rover. “We are excited to be able to continue to partner with rescues like Lucky Dog Animal Rescue to help save the lives of animals in need and pair them with their forever pet parents.”
Rover is committed to not only fostering a strong online community to match dog owners with trusted dog sitters across the country, but also ensuring that our community is giving back. Rover’s Sit-A-Dog, Save-A-Life program currently includes 36 non-profit partners, in 19 states across the U.S., and to-date has raised over $33,700 for animals in need.
Rover.com is the leading online community that connects dog owners with trusted dog sitters, and is where dogs beg to stay. We believe that all dogs deserve safe, loving homes even when their owners are away, and that’s why we created Rover. Our services provide an alternative to traditional caged boarding facilities, or family, friends and neighbors who are often asked to sit in a pinch. Rover currently operates nationwide, with 150,000 members enrolled, more than 25,000 approved sitters in over 4,300 cities across the U.S., and approximately 1,000 sitter options in each of the top 20 markets. Additionally, we believe all dogs deserve a happy and loving home and that’s why we’re committed to supporting animal shelters and companion animal programs across the nation. We also make it easy for sitters to donate a portion of their proceeds to local shelters through our Sit-a-Dog, Save-a-Life program, saving the lives of dogs everywhere.

About Lucky Dog Animal Rescue
Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is an all-volunteer, non-profit animal rescue organization based in Washington, D.C. that is dedicated to saving the lives of homeless animals and educating the community on responsible pet ownership. Lucky Dog does not have its own facility. Instead, our dogs stay with temporary fosters (and occasionally boarding partners) while they wait to find their forever home. We hold adoption events each week where you can see the Lucky Dogs strut their stuff, and we also arrange private meetings for adopters who fall in love with a pup’s internet photo. Furthermore, our volunteers are more than just volunteers, and our dogs are more than just dogs. We are a family.
