A Rising Tide Lifts all Boats

This is a quote that was used in several speeches delivered by President John F. Kennedy during both his time as President and as a Massachusetts Senator.  This quote gives illustration to the concept of Give to the Max Day– a day that brings together the generous people of Minnesota in support of nonprofit organizations that, together, help to strengthen communities in our State.

This quote also embodies the work of Leech Lake Legacy because we believe that by working together in collaboration with a large network of animal welfare organizations, we will be able to do more for reservation animals and pet owners.

Leech Lake Legacy is one of the organizations that will be campaigning for funds on Give to the Max Day in order to further our mission to ensure that every reservation dog and cat is well cared for.  Without our supporters, we would not have been able to touch the lives of over 3,000 animals since we began this work in May 2011.

We believe that every animal matters and that all lives have purpose and meaning.  For Leech Lake Legacy, our purpose is to be a resource to the animals and pet owners of the Leech Lake reservation by providing surrender and transportation services, low-cost spay/neuter/wellness clinics, adequate outdoor shelter, and educational programming.   Since May 2011, we have done 1,901 transfers; performed 606 spay/neuter surgeries; and administered 413 wellness exams/vaccinations.

But this work could not be possible without our supporters – generous people just like YOU who give of your time, talent, and treasure to help these animals in need.

On Thursday, November 14th, be a part of the rising tide and help to raise OUR boat!  Support Leech Lake Legacy and make a difference in the lives of reservation dogs and cats…because they matter.

Dexter is a 2.5 year old St. Bernard who came down on transport on 10/25/13. About a week after he arrived he broke with parvo. Leech Lake Legacy has taken Dexter back into their program and is treating him for parvo. Your donation will help us care for animals like Dexter so that he is given the second chance we believe he deserves.
