Lucky

Lucky
Nazareth Lodge Puppy

Lucky's job is simple - to make our residents and staff smile every day.  This is a role that he performs expertly!

At Nazareth Lodge, we believe that having animals around the home on a daily basis actually helps our residents feel more at home.  Having pets can help reduce blood pressure and improve overall cardiovascular health. It can also release endorphins that produce a calming effect that can help reduce stress and pain and improve cognitive performance.
