Hank’s Legacy Foundation was created in memory of my first dog Hank. Hank, a Great Dane, came from a breeder, and we quickly learned the hard lesson of not doing enough research on breeding. Hank developed severe allergies resulting in multiple emergency room visits and eventually daily injections. Our sweet boy grew up in a body that would fail him. His poor health and his poor eye-site caused Hank to live an unsure life. He was constantly nervous and extremely cautious of everything new. After multiple train camps, his aggression grew, and we knew this life wasn’t fair to him. You always hear stories about people and their “heart dogs”, and Hank was mine. Losing him was the most devastating thing, and now I vow to save animals like him. I promised my big goofball that I would fight for the poorly bread animals. I would advocate for stricter training and education. I would save all that I could. Hank’s Legacy foundation is built for the animals that need an advocate in order to save their lives. They need a voice, and we are here to give it to them.
Mission statement "To rescue unwanted dogs from the Los Angeles shelters and provide education for the misunderstood “mutt”, To bring awareness to the growing problem of backyard breeders producing “designer dog” breeds without a thought to the health of the animal or the same types of mixed breeds sitting in the shelter system”
Our rescue follows the no-kill policy and is operated solely by volunteers with an emphasis on foster homes, until we are able to have a physical rescue facility.
We are located in the San Fernando Valley and mostly rescue from the East valley animal shelter. We are just starting out and so we have only a few dogs available at one time. If you are interested in a certain breed, I can place you on a list for that breed and notify you when that breed becomes available.
We are 501(c)3! All Donations are Tax Deductible!
We run 100% on donations from our community, and could not do this without you!
We give back to our community through Trap, neuter, and release programs for the feral cats in our area and hope to expand our spay and neuter programs as well. Your donation will go directly to the care for animals. We greatly appreciate every donations, whether it is time or money.
We cannot function without community support. While most groups will forget about the most important volunteer, we are here to thank every one of you who helps spread our message. Tell your friends and family about us so that we can make Los Angeles No kill. Ask them to volunteer their time, or skip that morning coffee and donate to our great cause! Every little bit helps and we appreciate it all!
Thank you for your support!
