The Dog Program at Luna's House Inc. reached an important milestone by adopting its 100th dog this month. Edison, a terrier mix, was adopted by Donna and Michael Lubawski of Edgewood on June 5, making Edison lucky number 100.
Luna's House Inc. began rescuing dogs from various shelters and taking in individual surrenders in January 2012. The Luna's House Dog Program is made up entirely of volunteers who take care of the dogs and ensure the dogs are adopted to the best homes that match the dog's lifestyle. Some dogs are cared for at the center, 2801 Pulaski Highway, Edgewood, and foster parents take care of some of the dogs in their homes. Fostering is a lifesaving way that a frightened dog gets used to life in a home and helps the dog learn that people can be kind and they will have a safe, secure and warm place to sleep. The foster homes help prepare a dog for a new life in a permanent home.
Edison came to Luna's House scared of people and was placed in a loving foster home until his forever family came along. The foster program also helps free up space so another dog can be rescued.
Luna's House Animal Care and Education Center is a non-profit all animal rescue dedicated to bettering the lives of animals and their people.
