Lola's Lucky Day was officially formed on January 8, 2015. Founded by Larissa Gavin who wanted to help homeless animals in Houston, TX who had no other option. Originally from Wisconsin where the animal over-population problem does not exist; she networked and formed relationships with partner rescue groups and shelters there to help place our vetted dogs.
In June of 2015, enough money was raised to purchase a rescue vehicle to transport our dogs from Houston to Wisconsin. Since then we have helped over 6,000 dogs who otherwise would have no chance. In 2017 Lola's Lucky Day also expanded its operations and rescue efforts to Dallas, TX.
Lola was one of the first dogs that we rescued and was adopted by a family in Houston. She lives a very spoiled life and is a great advocate for our rescue. We also think it's each dog's lucky day when we rescue them; hence "Lola's Lucky Day".
Larissa is a graduate of Texas A&M University Mays Business School and works as an Executive Assistant for an Energy Private Equity firm. Her and her husband Mark have two rescue dogs, Millie and Cupcake.
