Danielle and her husband, Justin, began their animal rescue journey fostering animals in 2014. During that time they have helped over 100 animals find furever homes. After making many transport trips down to TN and GA they decided to start Lucky Paws in order to reach out to more animals in need of help. Danielle and Justin donated a motorhome to Lucky Paws to aid in the transport of multiple animals in a calm, low stress environment. Lucky Paws quickly out grew the motorhome unit and now can transport over 60 animals in a fully temperature controlled unit.
We are constantly in need of training pads, stainless steel bowls, collars, leashes, harnesses, food, plastic or metal crates, blankets, towels, bleach and flea & tick topicals.
We appreciate any and all donations!

Lucky Paws was grateful enough to be the recipient of Athletes for Animals 2022 Grant for their spay and neuter program. This program provided spay and neuter surgeries to 18 dogs in over populated shelters located in Middle TN. We were then able to place them into rescues groups here the northeast via our efforts and transportation. These animals may not have been selected had the receiving rescues had to pay to alter the animal after arrival. Being able to provide these services was truly a life saver and prevents future unwanted animals!!

Some months we need help loading up supplies to take down to TN the week before transport, like the food. If we have a lot of crates on board, we also need help lining them with 2 layers of training pads and blankets and placing water bowls in each crate. That way when we are in TN we can quickly unload supplies at our stops and load up our precious cargo.
Every month we need volunteers to help us unload and clean the rig at arrival on Sunday morning at 9am in South Jersey. We unload the puppers and hand them off to their receiving rescue groups and then fully dismantle all the crates, clean and disinfect them along with the trailer. It is exhausting after driving through the night but it so nice to have the help and finish the job together.
There are times when we are looking for volunteers to go on trips to TN for our monthly transports. If you are interested in going we have dates lined up throughout the year. You must be comfortable driving a pickup truck and trailer and you do need to have some experience volunteering with us. We leave on Friday morning at 5am sharp and arrive back home in South Jersey at 9am Sunday morning.
We have volunteer needs for our “Wag through the Pines” event each spring. That is our 1 mile walk and 5 mile walk/run event with your pet at Hospitality Creek Campground. Usually in mid January our website goes live for this event and you are able to sign up directly on there.
Throughout the year we participate in different events at different shelters or local craft shows to share our story and sell items to benefit our efforts. We could also use help with an event we plan on attending.
