Legacy Boxer Rescue

Funded in 2020

How we help

The generous grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization will support and expand the Legacy Silver and Legacy Keepers programs. Keepers are boxers that find a new lease on life through Legacy Boxer Rescue (LBR), but are not available for adoption typically due to age-related and health issues. These boxers are considered to be in hospice care and will be loved and cared for by their foster families for the remainder of their lives. 

About Legacy Boxer Rescue

Since 2004, Legacy Boxer Rescue's (LBR) all-volunteer mission has been to seek out boxers in need in North Texas, and create the legacy they deserve– a loving family and home of their own. To achieve this mission, LBR pulls dogs in need from shelters and accepts surrendered dogs directly from owners without regard to age or health. LBR has 233 active volunteers and averages 100-150 adoptions each year. All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

Lionel's Legacy

Funded from 2014 - 2017

How we help

A grant from Grey Muzzle is helping to launch a vital program to help seniors on fixed incomes keep their pets in their home by providing financial support for food and medical, or in the event that seniors are no longer able to care for their pets we would be able to take them under our wing and care for their pets needs.  Many elderly people have to let go of their senior pets, sometimes their only companions, and that is hard enough but knowing they can turn to an organization that will support them with resources or a new home for their senior dog will be of great help to senior dogs, our community and keep these loving dogs out of shelters.

About Lionel's Legacy

Lionel's Legacy is a 501c3 non-profit San Diego-based senior dog rescue and humane education program for elementary school children inspired by a senior pit mix named Lionel. It is their goal to save and advocate for ONE senior furbaby at a time, and support anyone who is willing to do the same.

The second component to Lionel’s Legacy is the message shared with children - through their humane education program they are working to provide an educational program to students who have a passion for animals. The goal is for students to become compassionate, advocating, respectful, and educated animal lovers who can share their new found knowledge with their peers and leave a legacy that Lionel will remember!
