Lucky Dog Animal Rescue Joins Chamber And Hosts Ribbon Cutting

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue celebrated its grand opening of its one-of-a-kind Rescue Campus in Florence, South Carolina (2502 North Williston Road, Florence, SC 29506). The lifesaving campus includes The Lazin Animal Foundation Infectious Disease Infections Care Unit, the JR Peterson Ringworm Center, the Verstanding Family Foundation Community Vet Clinic, and “Stopover Station,” a kennel building to house animals preparing for transport north.
Mayor Teresa Myers Ervin along with representatives from the Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce and other community leaders were in attendance to celebrate the grand opening. The event was open to all members of the community as Lucky Dog celebrate this historic day for animals across the rural south.
“We are so excited that this day has finally come,” said Mirah Horowitz, Founder and Executive Director of Lucky Dog Animal Rescue. “Pet overpopulation in Florence is a real challenge. This facility will not only prepare animals for transport to areas where adoptions are possible, it will also help community members care for their pets, preventing unwanted litters and avoiding the need to surrender in the first place.”

“Since its inception in 2009, Lucky Dog has helped save over 23,500 animals, ensuring they go on to live healthy, happy lives. We have seen the process firsthand with our own LDAR rescue dog, Jill.
