About Us

Lucky 13 Rescue is a federal 501(c)3 non-profit rescue founded in Drexel, Missouri in August 2016.


Lucky 13 Rescue takes in unwanted, stray, and lost pets in the Kansas City and surrounding areas, with a focus on rural communities with little resources. We provide veterinary care, rehabilitation, and most of all, love and compassion. Once an animal is ready for their next step in life, we thoroughly screen adopters, and work to place each pet into a loving forever home, fit to meet their needs. It is our mission to benefit the community as a whole.   

We are a foster based rescue as we do not have a facility to intake pets on the spot. If you have found a stray dog or are needing to surrender your pet, please fill out our  intake form.


All of our rescue animals are provided with medical attention and behavioral rehabilitation. They will be adopted into their forever home spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative.   


When Lucky 13 Rescue opened we only had two volunteers and we have grown to nearly 60! We are always looking for more! We have needs in online management, transportation, vet scheduler, fundraising and event help, and fostering. If you cannot volunteer, please consider donating to our organization. Your donation is tax deductible.
