Taffy's her name and being sweet is her game! Taffy came to Lionel's Legacy when her elderly owner could no longer provide care. She entered one of our local shelters and we worked with another local rescuer to get her out. She does have a heart murmur and enlarged heart so she is on heart medications to manage that for life! Taffy is believed to be about 10-12 years old

About Lionel's Legacy

About Our Rescue Group...

Lionel's Legacy is a San Diego based senior dog rescue and elementary humane education program. We provide a last chance for senior dogs entering the shelter systems in both San Diego and Los Angeles. We solely rely on fosters to care for our seniors temporarily while looking for their furever home or as permanent hospice fosters when the need arises.

We also believe in early education as a means of preventing pet overpopulation. As a second grade teacher at Central elementary in San Diego, I see first hand the difference educating our brilliant young minds can make.

Lionel's Legacy- Saving ONE senior dog at a time and educating MANY young minds to leave a legacy of compassion and advocacy!
