Every animal deserves a loving family


Ellie's Legacy Pet Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue organization that was started in June 2014 by Karen Fieldhammer.  Our rescue is 100% ran by volunteers who have a passion to make a positive difference to animals in need. We are a foster based rescue & are always seeking new foster families. The more approved foster families we have, the more animals we can save.

We have saved more than 250 cats & dogs in the past 3 years! We have welcomed animals in from different parts of MN as well as out of state. Most recently, we welcomed 9 dogs from Texas as part of a rescue mission to help the dogs already living in shelters when the hurricanes occurred. Many of those dogs came to us already sick; one was even heartworm positive. For a small rescue that relies solely on donations, our vet bills become quite high.

  • Every animal has the right to live in a loving home
  • We can be a voice for the voiceless
  • We can make a difference in the lives of dogs, cats & their owners
  • Every life matters
  • Our work is important, rewarding & often hard
Please consider donating to Ellie's Legacy this Give to The Max Day! Together we can improve the quality of life for animals in need.
