“I like to chase squirrels, go on long walks and watch Pupper TV”
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 at this level; she networked and formed relationships with partner rescue groups and shelters there to help place dogs once they were completely vetted.
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 5,000 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. She and her husband Mark have two rescue dogs, Millie and Cupcake.
"Thank you for all that you do! You rescued our sweet dog, Beans (then Teddy), and we are forever grateful to have him in our lives! He's a very very loved pup! We recently celebrated having him for 4 years with a homemade doggy cake. Thank you for your life saving work."
