Teen launches animal rescue to find dogs forever homes

 
We love feel-good stories about teens making a difference in their communities, and this one from HooplaHa is no different. Claire Fraise, 13, just adopted her first rescue dog, Lucky. "I know that without me, she probably would have been put to sleep," she says. "It feels really, really good to have made such a difference in a dog's life."
 
But Claire's foray into animal rescue doesn't just begin and end at home. She's started her own no-kill organization, Lucky Tails. Her goal is to save and find foster homes for 10 dogs this year, and double that each following year. As she herself has learned, there's nothing close to the feeling of giving a pooch in need a forever home. She tells her story in the video below...


Want to help? Plan a fundraiser at your school and donate the dough to a local no-kill shelter or start-up animal rescue, talk to your parents about fostering a dog or cat in need and consider adopting your next pet instead of going to a breeder.
