Hundreds of great dogs and puppies from across Washington will be available for adoption in one location on Sunday.

The "Lucky Dog" adoption event will be held form noon until 3 pm at the Academy of Canine Behavior in Bothell.  More than 95 families found their new best friends at last year’s event.
More than 100 dogs and puppies of all different shapes, sizes, ages and breeds from 11 animal rescue organizations will be onsite, available for adoption.  Puppies, adults, small dogs, purebred and mixed breeds will be available.

All shots, as well as spay/neuter surgery, are included in the adoption fee, which ranges from $150-$250.

Experienced shelter staff, volunteers and trainers will be on hand to help you find the right pup. And if you find that the dog you choose is just not a right fit, you can bring him or her back to the shelter or rescue.
Trainers will be available to answer your questions about any dog you are thinking of adopting. Shelter staff has evaluated each dog’s behavior and temperament.
