it's all about the animals

Lucky's Place is a private, independent NO-KILL shelter.

  Looking to open a space in your life and add a new member to your family? Our staff and volunteers interact with our pets regularly, observing their behavior and personality traits. We happily help match our rescues to the livestyles of new families. Take a look at the dogs and cats we are caring for at this time or stop by the Shelter for a visit!

Our Programs

Low Cost Spay/Neuter

From time to time we will receive grants that enable us to assist the community with a portion of the cost of spay or neutering your pets. Thanks to PAWS of Jackson Hole and Dr. Heather Carlton, Animal Adoption Center in Jackson for their grants programs.


We offer foster care to dogs and cats by opening our hearts and homes to temporarily shelter for needy animals. If you could only assist in fostering for a short time or on an emergency basis if even for only a few days or a week we could sure use your help.


Open a place in your heart and you will receive much more in return. Lucky’s Place is NOT county or city owned or operated shelter it does not receive funds from local city governments. It is wholly run and mainained by volunteers.
