ORGANIZATION: Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue

  • 7 people are interested

Fostering saves lives! Every pet placed in a foster home opens up a space in a shelter for another animal in need. By fostering a pet, you just saved two lives.

As a foster parent, you’re a surrogate family, taking a homeless dog or cat in need into your home and caring for the animal until the pet is adopted.

  • Fosters help get pets adoption ready by:
  • Helping a sick/injured pet get well
  • Getting a pet used to being in a home
  • Socialization with people and animals
  • Basic training
  • Promoting their foster online and at adoption events
  • Providing love

We’re looking for fosters who can:

  • Provide a loving and supportive home to animals in transition.
  • Comply with instructions from the Medical Team regarding medications and treatments of the animal. Work with the Medical Team to transport the animal to and from veterinarian appointments.
  • Arrange to have photographs taken by one of our photography team volunteers in a timely manner. High quality photos help us get animals adopted quickly!
  • Complete our biography questionnaire in a timely manner. Detailed and interesting bios attract attention and help animals find their forever home!
  • Bring the animal to adoption events; ensure the animal is available during events to maximize the opportunity to find a forever home.

If you’re looking to make a difference in the life of an animal and become an important part of the mission to save homeless pets, complete our online fostering application at -

About Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue



Mission Statement

Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue is a positive, professional 501(c)3 rescue charity that helps our community and shelter partners save more animals, more quickly by rescuing them, temporarily caring for them in our excellent, supportive foster homes and matching them with fantastic adoptive pet parents.


Our Story

The story of Louie’s Legacy started in 2006 when our founder Emily met a Basset Hound mix with red fur and different colored eyes living at a shelter with a 99% euthanasia rate. Not long after bringing him home, Louie was diagnosed with heartworm disease. Some suggested taking him back to the shelter, but Emily refused. Louie was more than just a pet. He brought joy into her life and gave her something to care about and love outside of herself. And in the process of healing Louie, she found that he healed her too. Emily soon realized the overwhelming number of shelter animals whose lives were cut short. Louie could have easily been the same. Instead, he became an incredible catalyst for her mission and the inspiration for Louie’s Legacy. Since then, we've saved thousands of
animals and become one of the nation's largest foster-based rescues. Our goal is to save as many animals as possible and to expand our reach to help in even more areas, especially those that struggle with high populations of homeless and neglected animals.

In 2021, we saved the lives of more than 3,200 animals thanks to the generosity of our volunteers, fosters and donors.
