Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue, Inc. is a nonprofit and no-kill animal rescue based in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Staten Island, New York. It began in 2006 with a special little dog named Louie, who was rescued by Louie’s Legacy’s founder from a shelter that had a high euthanasia rate. Now, rescuing approximately 2,500 animals per year on average, Louie’s Legacy is one of the largest foster-based rescues in the country.
The Grey Muzzle Organization grant will allow Louie’s Legacy to continue rescuing at-risk senior dogs, like Penelope, from shelters and providing whatever necessary medical care needed to get them healthy and prep them for adoption into their perfectly matched forever home. Penelope, a 15-year-old Shih Tzu, was rescued from a New York shelter. She needed both of her eyes removed due to untreated issues, but is now healthy and well on her way to finding her forever home.
