Lionel's Legacy is a 501c3 non-profit San Diego based senior dog rescue and humane education program for elementary school children.

In the rescue world it’s an extreme gamble as adoption rates for seniors are low and medical costs often high. As a result, so many senior dogs are left behind at the shelter to live out their final days in confusion and discomfort. It is Lionel's Legacy's goal to save and advocate for ONE senior fur baby at a time, and support anyone who is willing to do the same.

Through the rescue's humane education program at Central Elementary, they work with Sweetwater High Animal CARE Club 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!
