Carrollton Holds Lucky’s Lottery on March 8

Post Date:03/01/2017 7:07 PM

Opie-1The City of Carrollton Animal Services Division will hold an adoption lottery on Wednesday, March 8 at 10 a.m. for Lucky, the four-month-old Chihuahua mix, who successfully recovered after ingesting opiates in the form of heroin.

Lucky was left in a vehicle by his owner, exposed to the opiates, and nearly died. With help from the Carrolton Police Department, Carrollton Animal Services worked with Dr. Stacie Fowler of the North Texas Emergency Pet Clinic on Frankford Road in Carrollton to ensure the survival and recovery of Lucky.

And now he’s ready to find his fur-ever family. One lucky winner will take the pup home after a drawing at the Animal Adoption Center (2247 Sandy Lake Road). Prospective adopters are encouraged to arrive at the Center promptly to receive a ticket. One ticket is allowed per household/family.

Lucky’s story is a happy one because of the donations and funds raised from events like the Run for Rover 5K and projects like the Pet Photo Calendar. Generosity from the community provides a means of treatment for potential pets and allows them to be adopted more easily into forever homes.

“We will never be funded to treat every sick or injured animal that comes in, but donations from the community help to support many of them,” Animal Services Manager Carl Shooter said.
