In loving memory of Grace, RIP 6/5/2012

Our Story

Our story really started in June 2012.  Our founder was a volunteer with an Italian Greyhound rescue.  She got a call from the organization about an Italian Greyhound named Grace in a shelter in Virginia.  They sent a photo and asked if she could foster.  She said yes without even thinking.  So, she made the 3 hour journey to the shelter to pick up Grace.  When she walked in and saw Grace, she couldn't help but to cry.  Grace was so beautiful and so sad at the same time.  She was skin and bones, her skull was bashed in and she had pus coming from her infected mouth  She was also heartworm positive and had mammary tumors all over her mammary chain.  Megan began the trek home, excited to show  Grace a life of love.  On the way home, she stopped to let Grace go potty and let her feel the sunshine on her face.  Grace was in bad shape.  Her body was so beat down.  On the way home, Megan stopped at the rescue director's home.  They made the decision to take Grace to the vet immediately.  The vet felt it was best to let Grace cross peacefully.  So, she held Grace and watched her leave this world.  Grace forever changed her and the way she saw the world.  Fast forward a few years and Megan met a woman named Tammy, who shared her love for the seniors and (her second favorite breed), min pins.   So now, we have a special place in our hearts for the seniors and for the sick.  We do take adoptable dogs, but our hearts are with our seniors.  We hope you will join us on this journey of ours.  Grace's Legacy is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.


Please reach out to us  if you are interested in volunteering, adopting, fostering or surrendering an animal.

Rest in Peace

Mercy came to us in pretty bad shape.  She wasn't feeling well and was skin and bones, but we didn't know why.  After a long ER stay and ultrasound, it was discovered that Mercy has multiple heart issues that make it tough for her heart muscle to pump blood.  Mercy will be on 4 medications, 2x per day for the rest of her life.  


Jasper is a 10 year old Italian Greyhound.  His owner reached out to us a few years ago after she was diagnosed with a terminal illness.  She knew the time would com where she could no longer care for Jasper and wanted to ensure he was cared for.  We made a promise to her that we would love him for the remainder of his years.


Our little Rachi is only 4 years old, yet he has such a short time with us.  Rachi has multiple liver shunts as well as hydrocephalus.  He is currently on 6 medications, 2x per day.  


Rest in Peace

Cricket is also suffering from a valve issue in his heart.  As with Mercy, he is on multiple medications and will remain in foster care in comfort until his time comes to cross the bridge in dignity.


Pepe came to us from a kill shelter in North Carolina.  At 10 years old, we wouldn't dare bounce him around.  Pepe also suffers from a disorder that affects his mobility and results in the inability to walk.  Pepe is on and off of steroids and will be for the remainder of his life with us.

This is only a small selection of our senior/hospice pups.  Please bear with us as this section is a work in progress!  More to come!
