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.

These 12 cuties need a Cincinnati-area foster home ASAP! And they’re not all - even more are set to arrive with them! As an entirely foster-based rescue, our foster families are lifesavers – literally! Before committing to taking in any pet, we have to have an available foster home. You provide a temporary home and lots of love, we provide the rest. It’s that simple! The more fosters we have on our team, the more pets we’re able to save.

Volunteer to be a lifesaver for these puppies today at www.louieslegacy.org/get-involved/foster! And don’t forget to tag someone who would make a great foster parent, too!

Do you recognize this Louie’s alum?! We couldn’t celebrate #NationalPitBullAwarenessMonth without Benny! This girl spent 7 months in foster only to realize she was home all along. She’s coming up on the 1 year anniversary of her gotcha day and has come so far since the day she arrived. Keep living your best life, Benny!

We rescued this handsome boy from our friends at the Newark Animal Shelter on Tuesday and are officially IN LOVE! Major is a 2-year-old Pit/Lab mix who’s been the perfect foster kid so far. He’s big and beautiful and loves everyone he meets, both human and pupper. This boy can’t wait to find his perfect family and is enjoying his freedom in his Connecticut foster home until then!

IMPORTANT!! PLEASE READ!

Available animals in attendance will be accepting applications to go home same day. Please come prepared with vet information for any existing pets (or records if your vet is closed that day) so that we can verify that existing pets are fixed and up to date on shots, all family members (human and dog; everyone in the home must meet their new family member), and a lease or signed letter from your landlord if you rent your home stating that you are allowed to have a pet and there aren't any restrictions. Please note that we cannot guarantee that any animal will be available for adoption when you show up.
