Angelique Salazar, Owner, U Lucky Dog
Angelique Salazar is a spirited Denver entrepreneur, dog lover and Colorado native who is passionate about creating opportunities that blend neighborhood, community and business. U Lucky Dog (ULD) is one of her first creations. Started in 2010, ULD has grown to an award-winning, 25,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor facility for doggy daycare and overnight boarding. It’s located in central Denver, couched conveniently between the RINO, Chaffee Park and Highlands neighborhoods.

With several dogs of her own, Salazar understands the importance for dogs to receive regular social interaction and exercise. ULD offers everything a pet owner could want: dog daycare, boarding, bathing services, one-on-one walks, canine massage, live webcams, 24-hour staffing and more. With affordable rates, an outdoor swimming pool for dogs and a prime Denver location, ULD is an ideal drop-off facility for busy workers and travelers. Pet owners also delight in the fully stocked retail shop and its premium dog food and treats for every kind of canine diet. Her focus on creating a safe, controlled environment for dogs has helped U Lucky Dog win a 5280 Top of the Town Award for Best Doggie Daycare.

ULD is a proud member of the Colorado Association of Dog Daycares, the International Boarding and Pet Services Association, the International Association of Canine Professional and the Mile High Business Association. Angelique remains active in these organizations because she is committed to an environment in which members encourage each other to share in a vibrant industry, with the highest degree of ethics.

Angelique’s entrepreneurial spirit also led her to open the Crafty Fox Tap House and Pizzeria in February 2016. Located one mile from Downtown Denver, her family-friendly restaurant serves up 60 taps of craft beer, many brewed in nearby neighborhoods and along the Front Range.

Family is important to Angelique, and giving back is in her blood. She’s well known for being an advocate for less fortunate individuals in her community by raising money for the homeless, and providing free meals to workers during strikes or on furlough. She is also active in the Salazar Family Foundation, the local philanthropic organization established by her parents to serve classrooms via scholarships and literacy programs. She is also a member of the board of directors of the Latino Donor Collaborative.

Angelique’s roots grow deep in Colorado. She serves as vice president of her family’s investment management firm, Central Street Capital, Inc. It manages all her family’s investments, including the 960-bed Regency Student Housing Community and the Villas at the Regency in Denver.

Angelique graduated from the University of Colorado at Denver with a bachelor’s degree and lives in Denver with her two children. She strongly believes that taking care of her community, and its dogs, is key to enhancing the collective well-being of families.
