Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit and no kill animal rescue based in Cincinnati and Staten Island, New York. We are proudly foster based, meaning our animals live in homes, not shelters. This differentiates us and allows us to more thoroughly get to know our animals, ensuring they are matched with suitable, screened adoptive homes which meet our high standards.

Hey, Ohio! We know you’re all getting antsy for some fun, but since you can’t have a real party, Fenway says how about a Pittie party?! This guy is just a year old and already such a good boy! He knows sit, lay and give paw and while he is an extra-sweet, gentle guy, he’s working hard on keeping that wiggly 56-pound body well mannered on a leash. All this boy wants is a yard where he can take an afternoon snooze in the sun and a lap to lay his head in at night. Add in a playful friend on 4 legs and you’ve checked off Fenway’s bucket list!

“Every dog deserves a happy furrever; hounds are no exception. However, they are often overlooked at shelters because people believe they are outdoor dogs that are only good for hunting. That simply couldn’t be further from the truth! With love and patience, hounds make great family pets and fiercely loyal companions. We foster to keep hounds from being euthanized for space in shelters and to give them the happy ending they deserve.”

Hello?! Is this thing on?? Oh...Hi...Fuzz here, reporting in from the second best nap spot in the house. Anybody else’s humans taking over all your favorite nap spots ALL the time now?! I guess those extra snacks and chin scratches are making up for it though.
Post a photo below to show me your favorite spot to #QuarantineAndChill with your humans!
“Remote” adoptions truly are remote during a crisis. Here’s a glimpse into how our fosters and volunteers are still working hard to find loving homes for our foster pets, while putting everyone’s health and safety first!
In response to COVID-19, BISSELL Pet Foundation is sponsoring reduced adoption fees across the country from now until Wednesday, April 1 in an effort to assist animal shelters and rescues. The foundation hopes this will encourage families to add a furry quarantine buddy into their home in a time when it’s needed the most.
“COVID-19 is responsible for canceling many scheduled fundraisers and events that shelters and rescues rely on to operate,” said Cathy Bissell, Founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation. “We will continue to ease the burden on our partners and work to find solutions for them in any way we can. This week, you too can be a part of the solution for homeless pets by choosing to adopt.”
Thanks to BPF funding, you can adopt a select pet from Louie’s Legacy for $25 by viewing adoptable animals online at www.louieslegacy.org/wp/adopt/. Once an application is submitted, our volunteers will work with approved adopters to schedule an in-person meet and greet with social distancing in mind.
We would like to thank our sponsors for their generous support!
