Starlett may not be the most adoptable of our senior sweeties due to being treated for congestive heart failure and seizures but this girl enjoys the good life with her foster canine and feline siblings. You know these dogs are pretty resilient because they tend to not worry about these "small details" and just enjoy each and every day. Sounds like a can-do attitude if you ask me!

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!
