My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

This foster of mine, Summer Sunshine loves the sun, she'll pull herself out, of the back door to get some. And yes I said pull, because she can't walk, but she sure likes to bounce and she loves to talk! On Wheelchair Wednesday, our favorite day of the week, she puts on her wheels, and heads towards the creek. Out the door she will run, and bark to "keep up!", I really didn't expect to run with this pup! The people passing by all stop to take a look, she brings them such joy, like a Harry Potter book. Up the hills she will roll, off curbs and across the street, she really goes fast for a pup with two feet! Her diapers are cute, her attitude is spicy, she's snuggly, she's tiny, and a wee bit feisty. She's only two years old, but has been through so much, run over by a car and bitten by another pup. This foster of mine, you just have to meet, she'll wriggle into your heart, especially if you have a treat!

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!
