Meet the Administration! Directors of Furiends in Furever Homes

Welcome to the next stop on the tour of the co-Mayorz Murphy and Stanley's new administration. Cinderella and I are honored to serve as co-Directors of Furiends in Furever Homes. This is a position we've served in since Mayoress Madi's administration, and it's something we're passionate about.

As some of you know, the Legacy Chronicles is unique because I'm not blogging for myself. This is the official blog of Legacy Boxer Rescue, the pawesome rescue that saved me AND my sissy Cinderella. We were both in pretty bad condition when LBR stepped in and saved our lives.

I nearly died waiting for a foster home while I got sicker and hotter, thrown out in a backyard.

Cinderella was probably used as a breeder for a puppy mill. She had her last litter in the shelter, and she was so super sick when she was rescued that it was months before she was adoptable.

 Because of how impawtant LBR was to OUR lives, Cinderella and I consider it our mission to help other doggies in need! That's why I signed up to be the official LBR blogger and share the word. Imagine my surprise when I discovered Blogville and was able to reach all SORTS of amazing pups and kittehs out there who are just as passionate about helping animals in need.

Some of you foster pups just like we do. I love hearing all the amazing stories you tell about your foster dogs on their searches for their pawfect furever home!

Others help animals in need in other ways, by helping out with fundraising, planning activities, or going to events to spread the word about your breed and your rescue. It's so impawtant to press the flesh -- or the fur! -- and put a face on rescue for all the people out there who don't know what the difference is between a rescue and a puppy mill.

I think it's so special that almost EVERYONE out there in Blogville has their own rescue or shelter that they're passionate about and help. I loves seeing all the posts people share about their rescue's events, their foster dogs, and donations they make to local shelters.

So that's where Cinderella and I come in! As Directors of Furiends in Furever Homes, it's our job to encourage all of Blogville's citizens to keep our less-fortunate furiends in mind and support your favorite rescues and shelters!

Over the next year, Cinderella and I want to host some blog hops that will highlight ways you can support the rescue or shelter of your choice. You don't have to be able to foster a dog or give lots of green papers to help save dogs and cats from dying in shelters and support them on their way to finding a furever home just like WE enjoy!

So let's all remember how fortunate we are, and keep in mind all of our furiends out there who are still waiting. If you have any ideas for grreat ways to spread the word around Blogville and encourage people to support their local shelters and rescues, please let us know! Let's help find everypup and everycat a home!

Congratulations Casey and Cinderella on becoming Co-Directors of Furiends in Furever Homes, this is a wonderful pawsition for you both, I'm excited to support you, your stories and the stories of other dogs that you share with us are so very touching and inspirational, I am amazed constantly with all the good work LBR does and how you can change a life around, its wonderful to see before and after photos and see that more and more dogs get forever homes! I am always sad to read the horrible abuse that some dogs have to endure but I'm glad that they can be saved and loved, even for a short while, every dog deserves love! Love and Licks from your furiend Frank xxxxx
