Joey’s Legacy was founded in september 2009. You can read the history of how we started and the story of Joey here
We primarily focus on rehoming boxer dogs, but we will aim to help other similar breeds such as mastiffs, bulldogs and even pugs.
Our team are mainly based in liverpool but we have volunteers in lots of different areas. We do not have our own premises, so we rely on a network of foster homes in england and wales. In urgent or emergency situations where no foster home is available then we also use a local private boarding kennels to board the dog until we can find a suitable foster or permanent home.
We are a very small team, of just 4 trusteees, so volunteers are something we are always on the lookout for. The more help we have, the more dogs we can help in return.
We provide extensive veterinary care and training for the dogs that need it. We refuse to have dogs put to sleep, except for extreme medical reasons or irreversible behavioural conditions.
We have a long history of rescue and rehoming which continues to grow thanks to the dedication and enthusiasm of our many supporters, volunteers, members and Trustees. If you would like to support us in our continuing efforts to help the dogs please see the Get Involved Page.
Our goal isto purchase our own premises where we can expand the amount of dogs we help, with on site training and rehabilitation, more volunteering opportunities and a safe “half way home” for our dogs.
