We may not have loved you first, but we will love you forever!
There are many reasons why senior dogs end up homeless at shelters. Sometimes owners are unable to afford medical care for their pets, or they are struggling to care for themselves and their canine companions. Here at Lionel’s Legacy, a Senior Dog Rescue, we aim to help aging beloved pets stay with their families through our Keeping Pets Home Program or join one of our amazing foster families where we commit to them for life!
Give them forever loving homes
