U Lucky Dog moving to new spot just 700 feet away

DENVER, Feb. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denver’s award-winning U Lucky Dog is taking things to the next level.

The daycare and boarding facility in the Fox Street neighborhood has begun construction of a new home about a block away from its current location. The new U Lucky Dog (ULD) will include an expanded number of enclosures and play areas for the four-legged clients. All aspects of ULD will be upgraded and modernized as needed.

“We’re excited for this opportunity to analyze all aspects of the business and to ensure that we are providing the greatest comforts and conveniences in the safest environment for our clients,” said Angelique Salazar, owner of U Lucky Dog, also known as Club ULD. “We are thrilled to be able to make this happen.”

Salazar made the announcement about the relocation via a video that is available for viewing here. ULD will make a follow-up video available closer to the grand opening, so the public can get a full view of the final product.

ULD made its debut on Denver’s doggy daycare scene in 2010, and one of the huge attractions has been the proximity to easy transportation (highways and commuter train); and Salazar was determined to maintain that convenience for ULD’s clients. Another improvement in the new location is the additional amount of outdoor space that will allow the maximum amount of exercise while pets are under ULD’s care.

“For people on their way to the airport for vacations or business trips, this is the place to board their pets,” said Salazar. “If you thought dogs couldn’t smile, you will change your belief when you see their faces upon your return.”

Denver dog daycare donates to pet shelter tragically struck by Hurricane Dorian


Business owner asks Coloradoans to open their hearts and wallets after shelter loses nearly 100 pets in storm surge in Bahama

DENVER (Sept. 11, 2019) – Angelique Salazar, a Denver business owner of U Lucky Dog daycare and boarding, is asking Coloradoans to join her fundraising efforts by donating to the Humane Society of Grand Bahama after nearly 100 dogs and cats reportedly died in fast-rising floodwaters from Hurricane Dorian.

Salazar started the effort by donating $2,220 to the Humane Society of Grand Bahama and encourages others to donate at either of these two websites:

http://www.thekohnfoundation.org/

“When I read the news, I was in shock,” said Angelique Salazar, owner of U Lucky Dog daycare in Denver. “I can’t imagine what it’s like to watch the pets you are trying to save drown in their own crates. Even though we’re thousands of miles away, I knew we needed to help in some small way. And I’m hopeful that our patrons and the Denver community will also donate any amount possible to help this shelter get the medicine and mobility it needs.”

According to CNN, six staff members at the shelter were working to elevate the pet crates in rising waters during the hurricane. Then a wall of water inundated the shelter, forcing the staff to climb into the attic to narrowly avoid drowning. More than 150 animals survived, but the shelter is in need of medicine, pet food and vehicles.

Some of the animals had been left at the shelter by families evacuated to human shelters that wouldn’t allow pets.

Angelique Salazar is related to the Salazar Family Foundation of Denver, which has a rich history of charitable works throughout the metro area, many spearheaded by her. In 2018, Salazar donated $10,000 to help pay the veterinarian bills of an abused puppy left at the MaxFund shelter in Denver.

$1,000 worth of pizza for furloughed workers free meal at Crafty Fox was ‘reason to get out of bed’
DENVER (Jan. 22, 2019)

Generating heartfelt expressions of gratitude, Crafty Fox Taphouse & Pizzeria handed out more than $1,000 worth of pizza and drinks recently to federal workers who have temporarily lost their jobs as part of the U.S. government shutdown.

For nearly a week, Crafty Fox made the free meals available to the thousands of federal workers in Colorado whose paychecks have dried up. More than 100 workers took advantage of the offer. One of them was an anonymous “government employee” who sent a note to the restaurant, saying he or she had been in a “depression hole.”

“This free meal is more than a free meal to me, so thank you doesn’t quite say it all,” the employee wrote. “Falling into a depression hole, this free meal gave me a reason to get out of bed, get out of the house and share a laugh or smile, which is the best medicine. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you! More than you know.”

Crafty Fox Owner Angelique Moyer said the note and similar others validated the restaurant’s decision to dedicate a modest amount of its charitable resources toward the federal workers. Crafty Fox previously had an event before Christmas to feed Denver’s homeless population; and now the restaurant is planning a benefit in conjunction with its three-year anniversary celebration (details to be announced).

Federal worker Michael Beattie posted on social media a photo of himself and friends at the restaurant with the message, “There IS such a thing as free lunch …”

And in an email from furloughed worker Duane O. Matt: “I just wanted to personally thank you for your generosity yesterday!  Being a furloughed federal worker is tough enough, and, your business offering a free meal during this time was really appreciated. It uplifted both my colleague and me to just go, hang out, and forget about not working for a bit.”  

Angelique Moyer is related to the Salazar Family Foundation of Denver, which has a rich history of charitable works throughout the metro area.

“When we see our friends, neighbors and customers suffering the way they have been during this partial government shutdown, it inspires us to find ways to help,” Moyer said. “We wish the shutdown could come to an amicable conclusion. In the meantime, we will monitor the situation and examine ways that we might help in the future if necessary.”

Crafty Fox Stages Holiday Event for Denver’s Homeless
YourHub Denver Post - December 20, 2018 

Volunteers shuttled homeless citizens from the Denver Rescue Mission to the Crafty Fox Taphouse & Pizzeria recently, where dozens of additional volunteers served pizza, salad and chicken wings to more than 100 holiday guests.

The event, tabbed “Christmas at Crafty,” attracted a local high school teacher and students, a seven-year-old boy about to move to Texas, and a homeless guest who was celebrating news that day of a new job.

Angelique Moyer, owner of the Denver restaurant at 3901 Fox Street, decided in early November that she wanted to find a way to help improve the holidays for people who are all-too-often forgotten this time of year. Apparently, it worked.

“You’re changing the world through your heart, success and acts of kindness,” volunteer Erica Mallery wrote to Moyer in a text message after the event. “Thank you for truly being an inspiration.”
The four-dozen volunteers included Moyer’s mom, Lola Salazar; Academy High School teacher Lindsey Wrege and students from grades 9, 10 and 11; plus Allison Mueller of Centennial with her seven-year-old son Archer – the youngest of the volunteers. He said he wanted to do something memorable for some “less fortunate” people in Denver before he and his Mom moved to Texas to follow his Dad’s military assignment.

“I didn’t know I could go into the kitchen and actually serve people!” he said. “I would like to come back and do this again next year.”

Derrick (guests went by first-names only) learned about the event via a flier at the Rescue Mission, and he was especially pleased with the chicken wings, which he said had a “nice kick to them.”
