My story

Belinda's young female owner was killed by a hit and run driver, unfortunately extended family decided they did not want Belinda or her sister Serena. The girls both get along well with other dogs and people. Although the goal is to find them a home together, everyone knows and understands that they may need to find separate homes in order to give them the best opportunity of being adopted. They currently share their foster home with multiple other dogs both big and small.

More about this rescue

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!
