5 STAR REVIEWS FROM OUR VOLUNTEERS
"Once Lily’s Legacy Senior Dog Sanctuary touches your life in ANY way, you will never be the same! The absolute passion and dedication exhibited by anyone affiliated with LLSDS will cause you to put them on your Bucket List! You will want to visit to meet their precious senior pups and then likely will want to volunteer, foster, adopt, or donate. I can guarantee you will want to be a part of this remarkable group of people whose greatest passion is saving and loving those pups who desperately need to be rescued. Below are photos of the same pup, once emaciated and riddled with skin infection. After patient tender, loving care, he blossomed into the most magnificent pup imaginable! This is what Lily’s Legacy is ALL about!" - Denise
"I love volunteering at Lily's Legacy. I have volunteered at other animal shelters, and this one is by far the best. The "campus" has lots of space--a big hillside field, a smaller "dog park" and a meet-and-greet area for potential adopters. All are fenced in, giving the resident dogs the ability to wander around, run, or chase a ball. There are lots of dog beds in the barn, as well as a couple of sofas, plenty of choices for the dogs (and volunteers) who just want to hang out and relax. The kennels are indoor/outdoor, allowing the dogs to get some fresh air from time to time. It is truly a joy to be part of this volunteer community, and I look forward to spending time there." - Kathryn
"For the past three years my husband and I have volunteered here. I'm always impressed with the number of dogs that are adopted and get to live out their lives with a family that loves them. You would think senior dogs would be overlooked time and time again but not with Lily's. I fall a little bit in love with each dog I get to take care of but it's so heartwarming to be able to say goodbye because I know they're going to their forever home. The sanctuary is on a beautiful piece of heaven on earth and every dog gets personalized, loving attention from a great crew of volunteers. I'm honored to be a volunteer there." - Susan
"After volunteering at Lily's Legacy for a year, my wife and I adopted a 10 year old Border Collie (Cruz) from Lily's Legacy in July of 2015. Throughout the whole adoption process the volunteers at Lily's Legacy were incredibly supportive and helped us find an appropriate trainer that would help us work with Cruz. I am constantly amazed by how love transforms these dogs. Moreover, the diligence Lily's Legacy shows in finding the perfect forever home for these dogs is commendable." - Lisa
"Prior to recently retiring, I worked in pet animal welfare (Tony La Russa's Animal Rescue Foundation, then ASPCA) for 15 years managing both animal and customer service operations. I appreciate the challenge faced by homeless senior pets. When I moved to Sonoma County I checked out where I wanted to volunteer my time and donate resources. Lily's Legacy was a perfect choice for me. The team demonstrates compassion and takes excellent care of the dogs they intake. As the business plan progresses enabling LLSDS to save more lives, I am delighted to volunteer to walk dogs (hug them...that's the best), maintain kennels....whatever the team (2 and 4 legged) needs."
