Catalina and Patrick are the amazing married couple behind Lucky’s! Patrick is 65 years young and still working hard every day. Catalina is a translator and publisher by trade and Patrick, a builder (very handy!). They have always been animal lovers and from starting with just Lucky, they now have 35 dogs, 7 cats, 3 hens, a turtle dove and a pigeon.
Lucky’s is run from their home in Romania, approximately 20 miles out of Bucharest, Romania. As Lucky’s has grown in number, Patrick and Catalina have had to work with the space they have to ensure all animals have space to roam, play and sleep. There are 10 separate enclosures on their land, all that are separated by gates that allows the dogs to be rotated and socialised with others as time goes on.
What an amazing set of volunteers they have working at lucky's. From the moment we decided to adopt our 2 beautiful puppies we have received constant updates on their progress and we've really felt a part of their lives before we even met them.
This charity has brought me the most bouncy, loveable and perfect pooch. The experience from start to finish was nothing but calm. The volunteers were and continue to be helpful, understanding and empathetic.
Lucky's do an exceptional job with the dogs, they go above and beyond to ensure every dog is loved and health checked, all the volunteers help so much to keep the place running well.
