Welcome to Lora’s Luck Dog Rescue, Foster and Adoption Service.
Please read ALL of the following BEFORE you contact us.
This info is for people applying to be adopters, fosters or Lora's Luck Team Members
Facebook is reducing ALL functions of pages and messenger to ‘European’ or 'EEA’ settings. So we are shifting platforms and FB Messenger will NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE AS FIRST POINT OF CONTACT, so it will STAY OFF. FIRST CONTACT must now be to firstname.lastname@example.org where we will do the initial assessment, If you pass that we will send you an invitation to Skype so you can continue your application in a private and secure Skype chat and have your house check on a private and secure Skype video call.
We are entirely non profit and rely 100% on donations.
-Anyone who started an adoption, foster or team member (Admin) application in Messenger before Christmas, please contact us as below
-We are also looking for new applications from fosters and page admins (must go through the same rules, process, vetting and house check process as adopters). Previous adopters are also welcome to apply as an admin- message the page or use or special new admin email lorasQueries@gmail.com to request the Admin Roles document for training and descriptions.
2021 OPENING HOURS for OUR EMAIL, SKYPE and the WEBSITE
Monday 4th Jan 2021 onwards- NORMAL HOURS MON THURS FRI SAT 12-12 FROM THEN ON.
Our main focus are the black dogs, who are so often overlooked at rescues and shelters. If we can name them (£1 a name, which goes into a draw to get them named and funded) we can SAVE them! NO NAME = NO CHANCE TO LIVE.
We rescue the dogs OURSELVES, with the aid of a team across the UK and Romania. These dogs are ONLY available here and the website, and NOT on any other rescue or selling site.
If you want us to foster a dog for you in the UK first it costs £45 a month for up to 3 months as the pups decompress (for equipment, insurance and other legal costs) plus food costs which vary due to animal size, payable in advance after a successful house check. We advise all first time dog owners, and people with kids and cats unless they were brought up with dogs to go for this option to ensure a successful adoption but a foster will not be arranged (subject to availability) until AFTER A SUCCESSFUL HOUSE CHECK..
We also straight adopt from fosters and our small rescues in Romania to experienced adopters ONLY.
We offer RBU, house checks and an online support service for all adopters.
House checks do cost us time and are done by experienced LL team members. But one in four house checks fail, due to timewasters. Our checkers spend a minimum of three hours on your check and it usually follows at least a week of consultation in page PM to assess your suitability, all of which is done for free in our own time by volunteers, 12 hours a day 4 days a week. So we suggest a good will donation of £20 before a house check, once you have booked and had confirmation from us a date and time, to show you are serious.
So the rest is up to you! Help save a life today!
We have a PayPal email ONLY- DO NOT send adoption queries here: email@example.com
https://lorasluck.org/shop ) where we have Stripe, ApplePay and online banking options
or check out or banner for our bank BAC (for UK donations) and IBAN (for non UK donations.)
Any donations gratefully received to help keep our dogs healthy and adopt ready, and regular small monthly amounts would be super appreciated! Then we can plan properly to:
get more dogs ready to come to us
get more dogs out of the kill shelters and sponsored in the rescues so they can be treated and safe while we find fosterers and forever homes.
But why Lora’s Luck?
We are called Lora’s Luck as she was the girl who started all this off, and features in our photo and banner! Eleven years old, saved from a Romanian kill list, and never knew a home, with nobody showing her any interest as their forever dog… now she’s safe and happy at Lora’s Luck HQ
This page will provide
news and updates of new arrivals and adopted success stories,
LOTS of DOG PICS and VIDEOS- more than any other FB rescue page,
drives for funds
and of course, when the BIG DAY comes and they find their home for life!
We also have three GROUPS which are currently unaffected by FB changes/updates
-one CLOSED for all fosters, adopters and the trusted rescues we work with (for data protection)
-one PUBLIC for fundraising.
-and one PUBLIC Community Store,where Lora's Luck Full Members can list their products and services for free!
We call our donors Aunties and Uncles, and would love to hear from more sponsors for our pups. We run raffles, auction and sell items, run name draws and much more to help our pups in need.
Donations are as low as £1 (to put a name in a pup's draw), £2 or a minimum £3 for a 'ticket' that goes to vaccines, food, neutering and spaying, microchips- and donations of food,toys, treats, blankets and medicines we send out to our fosters and associated small rescues in Romania. We keep the donations low so everyone can help out, no matter what their income. You can also sponsor a dog (12 tickets a month) but this is NOT a reserve to adopt.
In the pics below are dogs available to adopt, or needing a name so we can care for them and get them ready to adopt, which we update regularly. ALL have videos and photo albums,and can be found in the page menu.
