STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — Friends and fans of a non-profit pet store in Studio City are trying to raise funds to keep the place open.

All the dogs sold at Lucky Puppy Rescue & Retail (12238 Ventura Boulevard, 91604, 818-370-5516) are rescue pets.

The store provides a place for dogs to meet their prospective new parents.

The store (open 7 days, mostly 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.) charges a nominal fee to cover spaying, neutering and shots.

Lucky Puppy boasts that they never euthanize a pet.

“The thing we do here, no matter how long the dogs are here, and we’ve had some dogs since the beginning, nobody ever gets euthanized,” said store employee Channing Weitz, “We believe everyone will eventually find their home.”

Friends of the store — opened in December 9, 2012, worry that it could close its doors as early as next month.

The store has placed more than 300 dogs since they opened and they have, in their own words, “a $40,000 vet bill.”
