I love a happy ending—or in this case, a happy beginning! Remember the story last year about the female dog left to die on a mountainside in Colorado when her owner abandoned her after she became injured? Missy, now known as Lucky, has a new home and her rescue spawned the Brothers of Lucky Search & Rescue group made up of the heroes who rescued her. Don’t miss the 1st-hand account of Lucky’s (Missy) rescue.
The Brothers of Lucky’s mission is to:
- Develop and maintain a statewide database of volunteers trained and willing to attempt high alpine canine rescues within the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
- Coordinate volunteers, call takers, dispatchers, and other necessary parties interested in order to facilitate high alpine canine rescues.
- Develop and maintain a website and social media site which will provide assistance and information relating to the activities of the Corporation to volunteers, rescuers, and the general public.
- Conduct community outreach programs to bring awareness to the general public on methods to better safeguard one’s companion prior to embarking a high alpine climb.
I love that they’re doing work to educate people to climb safely with their dogs! I really hope this spreads to other states and other mountainous regions.
