A Legacy of Love!

I'm so excited to share that Rosy, Arty, and Jakey at LLB in Our Backyard have chosen LBR as one of their charities for this year's No Tricks, Just Treats for Shelters! They host this incredibly generous event every year, encouraging everyone to do something special for their local shelters and rescues this year for Howl-o-ween. And for everyone who shares what special thing they've done for a local shelter or rescue on their blog hop, the LLB gang will be donating to their three chosen rescues!

Rosy and I are telling everyone all about the wonderfulness of LBR today. The other two rescues -- Marg's Animals and Brian's Home -- have been spotlit in previous posts. I encourage you to go read all about them!

But of course, LBR has my heart. I don't have the sad rescue story that many pups do. I was just surrendered by a very nice young lady who bought a cute boxer puppy and then was NOT prepared for the energy level and care I needed. So she surrendered me to my foster home for a few weeks, then I found Momma and came home with her! If LBR hadn't been around, I might have ended up in a shelter or even out on the streets!

My Angel siblings all had their own rescue stories with LBR. We've told the complete stories before, but here's a quick snip:

Casey nearly died as he was left sick in a hoarder's backyard with no grass or shade. When he was finally surrendered to LBR, he spent 5 months recovering in foster care before he found Momma.

Cinderella was clearly used as a breeder before she and her last litter were dumped. Her puppies didn't make it, and Cinderella was bald and itchy as she lost almost all her furs to a horrible flea infestation and allergies. But she found her fairy godmother through LBR and got a new lease on life in her golden years!

Jessie was a scared little stray on the streets when she was picked up by Animal Control. Luckily, she was rescued from the shelter by LBR and came straight to Momma's house -- where she moved right in to everyone's hearts!

So please join LLB in Our Backyard for No Tricks, Just Treats for Shelters this Howl-o-ween! As for LBR, you can donate through our website or Facebook page. We're going to be holding a big auction on November 11 to benefit our Keepers, dogs whose medical or psychological conditions mean they can't be adopted out but instead live out their legacy at LBR foster homes.


  1. that is so wonderful to honor your organization this way... 3 happy pups... and much more who found a home because of you and your friends!!!

  2. Matilda, all your angel siblings have a place in my heart, I have watched them over the years and LBR saved all of you as did your Momma... I tell anyone and everyone, if you don't want a MUTT like we have, there is a rescue for every breed. I am so glad you were saved by Boxer Rescue... tell Momma I changed my Amazon donation to LBR today.
