About the Foundation
Mrs. Lucille Drinkwater Allen died a resident of Denver, Colorado in 1965. Mrs. Allen had a lifelong passion for animals and for their proper treatment and general well-being. Her greatest joy in life was received from the affection, devotion and loyalty of dogs. The Lucille Drinkwater Allen Trust was created by her Last Will and Testament for the care of neglected, homeless, injured or abused domestic animals, particularly dogs. The trust has a practice of primarily supporting organizations located in Colorado due to the donor’s ties to the area.
