Legends Animal Rescue and Sanctuary is a rescue based in New Brighton, Minnesota founded in 2017. Most of our dogs are rescued from Puppy Mills. We help them decompress, realize humans are good, trustworthy and they deserve love. It’s so rewarding watching these dogs come out of their shell and develop personalities.
This year (2022) Legends Animal Rescue continues to save senior dogs along with cats & kittens. In 2020 we started taking in thanks to a Good Samaritan who reached out for help with 3 small kittens living outside in the cold weather. We knew in our hearts it was a sign to expand and save more animals! Since then we have taken in several litters of kittens.
All of us at Core Pet Zone have been working extra hard with extra dogs (and cats)! We started Legends Rescue (in honor of my dad) and we are finding it very rewarding helping the dogs start new lives.
Many of the dogs were afraid of people because of their previous lives, they have gone from turning away from eye contact, to coming when we call them. They enjoy being held, they no longer worry what is going to happen to them, they have learned to trust people and are ready for their next adventure.
If you are looking to foster or adopt a dog - or two - we have puppies to seniors - shedding and non-shedding. Because of their previous lives these are not typically not high maintenance dogs with anxiety. Most of them have never played with anything other than a leaf, or they had no idea how to play and enjoy life.
We are a small group of volunteers who operate this rescue out of our love for animals
