Hi, I emailed Janine with Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, and she had this to say:
In this case there probably isn’t anything we can do. There’s
generally a waiting period that has to happen for strays that are
picked up and people have to do certain things to find the owner
before we could legally take the dog (I don’t know all the rules for
this). Shelters have the process down, but it’s harder for private
owners to do it.
If people are willing to attempt to comply with those rules and want
to turn a dog over to us, we do have a process:
We won’t take every dog, but we will take some. And we’re more likely
to take a dog if the family turning the dog in to us is willing to
foster the dog until it’s adopted and take the dog to events.
Hope this helps!
