We Like: Brothers Of Lucky Search & Rescue

Lucky:MissyI 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:

  1. Develop and maintain a statewide database of volunteers trained and willing to attempt high alpine canine rescues within the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
  2. Coordinate volunteers, call takers, dispatchers, and other necessary parties interested in order to facilitate high alpine canine rescues.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
