“Dog Bless You” Philanthropist Donates 170 Dogs to Veterans

When Charlie Annenberg Weingarten met Lucky, an abandoned Golden Retriever, in 2001, it was love at first sight. Lucky went everywhere with Weingarten and inspired him to do more to strengthen dog and human connections through philanthropy.

In 2010, Weingarten created a nonprofit called Dog Bless You, whose Facebook page has more than 510,000 fans. Weingarten named the organization “Dog Bless You” because several years earlier Lucky had befriended a homeless man in San Francisco. As they were leaving, the man said, “Dog bless you.”
