Support and promote Leech Lake Legacy by purchasing your t-shirt!

Long sleeve t-shirt colors (Texas Orange and Kiwi)
Looking for an easy way to support our efforts to help the animals at Leech Lake Reservation? ... Purchase a Leech Lake Legacy t-shirt! :)

Leech Lake Legacy does not have a foster program or a physical shelter. Since our efforts began in May, 2011 we have been able to transport and help 926 dogs/cats. We work with shelters and rescues in Minnesota to place animals up for adoption. We do not adopt out any animals so we do not have any revenue from adoption fees. We work with the Leech Lake Tribal Police and when animals are surrendered or picked up we arrange for transport and placement of these precious animals. Oftentimes, animals come in injured and in need of immediate medical care. Leech Lake Legacy works with Animal Care Clinic in Bemidji, MN to provide any emergency care or for puppies surrendered to be boarded until we can arrange for them to be transported to a shelter or rescue. With the increase in the number of puppies being surrendered (and our need to provide temporary boarding) and the number of injured animals being picked up (we have had an increase of dogs with porcupine quills) our medical emergency fund is in dire need of being replenished. Please consider purchasing a t-shirt to help support our efforts and promote the work we are doing. Of course, you can also just make a donation to Leech Lake Legacy. We are a non-profit organization and have filed for federal tax exemption as a 501(c)3 public charity.
