ALEXANDRIA, VA – Tickets are now on sale for the premiere of the upcoming film The Lucky Ones. The film, by Creative Liquid Productions in cooperation with Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, will premiere January 26, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. at the Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse. Tickets are $10.00 and all box office proceeds will benefit Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.
The Lucky Ones follows the long journey many homeless animals must take to find their forever homes. The film is a documentary about the animals and the tireless efforts of hundreds of volunteers who find these dogs homes. The premiere will be hosted by Dr. Katy Nelson, host of “The Pet Show with Dr. Katy” on Washington DC’s news channel 8.
"This film is a must see for any animal lover," said Mirah Horowitz, founder and executive director of Lucky Dog Animal Rescue. "To see the journey that each dog takes to find his or her forever home is truly amazing."
Creative Liquid’s team traveled to a shelter in Florence, SC to document rescue efforts by local volunteers. The production team also traveled to Puerto Rico to document the Island’s homeless dog problem and the unique efforts of rescuers to save these animals. One of the central characters in the film is a dog named Rico, who was plucked from the streets by rescuers. The film follows his journey back to health and his long trip to Washington, DC. Rico is one of the 6000 dogs that Lucky Dog has rescued since it was founded in 2009.
