What we do

Our Work

Dog Rescue

Dog and Cat Rescue

We rescue animals from neglect, abuse, abandonment and  dangerous or unhealthy situations. They become our Legacies forever.

Dog Rescue

Care and Rehabilitation

Every animal coming into our rescue gets all necessary health examinations, to include screenings, vaccinations, medications, spay, neuter and further care as required. We want to ensure our Legacies are healthy!

Dog Rescue


Army’s Legacy is determined to find the best home for each and every pet in our care. We look for what is the best for the pet:  A family that will love them forever.

Dog Rescue


At present, Army’s Legacy is an all volunteer force caring for our Legacies in our own homes. It is our hope and our plan that we will be able to create a full time and full service sanctuary for our permanent residents.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

Army’s Legacy is working to create a movement in dog and cat rescue by being a leader setting markedly improved standards and best practices in the animal rehoming landscape.

We use love, care and kindness in every aspect of our efforts. As a result, we are ensuring that each animal we rescue receives every chance possible to succeed.  We offer focused care and rehabilitation, resulting in a high rate of successful adoptions and sanctuary for  those who cannot make the transition.

Army’s Legacy is an all animal rescue specializing in dogs of all breeds.

Pet Adoption Notes

Adopting VS BUying

In every town, in every state, in every country, on every continent, there are animals who, through no fault of their own, are desperately in need of a loving home. They deserve love and security. It is for this reason that we advocate and facilitate adoption.

There is a right way and a wrong way to adopt a pet, just as there is a right way and a wrong way to purchase a pet. Read on as we go into more detail.

Dog and Cat Rescue
How to Find the Perfect Pet

Our foster families get to know our animals on a one to one basis, learning their needs and personalities. With this knowledge and lots of experience, we help potential adopters through the process every step of the way. Through interviews and meet and greets, we help each family find the right pet who will fit them and their lifestyle. Even if we do not have the right pet for you right now, fill out the application and have a talk with us. We will keep an eye out for the perfect family member for you!
