Compassion is a spark that ignites contagious action. Dog rescuers live by this every day and it was no different when Joseph was brought into Meg Melampy’s life. Joseph was in need and quickly a community grew around him to help, but the best part of this story is that it doesn’t stop with Joseph. As a new organization, Joseph’s Legacy is taking action for other dogs in their area since Josephs rescue in September. Read more about Joseph’s Legacy below.
BestBullySticks.com recently had the great honor to donate $2,000 to Joseph’s Legacy during our ThanksGiveaway 2013 Charity Photo Contest.
When & Why did you start?
We started our Facebook mission (Justice for Joseph) on September 28, 2013 when Joseph was first rescued. It started out of the love to share his story and to let the world know that we are tired of weak animal abuse laws. We immediately saw the need to help many abused animals and work on the laws. Then, Joseph’s Legacy was born. We started helping saving lives, generating donations not only for ourselves, but for other organizations. Our supporters are always wiling to help.
What’s different about your rescue?
Joseph’s Legacy strives to regain hope and respect for all animals. We educate the public of the reality of animal welfare and lack of awareness. We team with rescues and shelters to save lives. We try to help on many different areas of animal welfare from changing laws, saving lives, education, & advocacy. read more…
