The Lucky Lucy Foundation is a Non-Profit, Pro-life, Pro-Quality of Life organization that tries to relieve the plight of severely neglected and abused township and street animals. We are also dedicated to the social upliftment and education of impoverished children and adults in and around Cape Town, and has been since inception in 2010.
It was established on Jan 28, 2010, after André Verbiest and Richelle Graham (Founding members) found a pregnant dog, tied to a railway line with wire. As a result of this inhumane cruelty, Lucy (as she quickly became known) lost her front leg as a result of several trains passing over her. Lucky was added because the trauma did not cause her death.
Lucky Lucy is an ambassador for the voiceless. We oppose any form of cruelty to animals, whether it is the physical abuse of a dog or inhumane methods of slaughter for human consumption. The Lucky Lucy Foundation is not just a small charity trying to save the world, but a stepping stone of hope for neglected and abused animals, a reducer of over-population and a beacon of light for destitute adults and children.
