Meet Miss Kate (aka Blondie)! Kate is a 1 1/2 year old (DOB 02/19/19) female Lab mix weighing in at around 40lbs. Kate loves her human(s) like nobody's business, she gives literal hugs and wants nothing more than to please you. She is fully Vetted, crate and potty trained. Kate does not "get along" with other dogs and would need to be the ONLY dog in the household. This may be "fixable", with a professional trainer, but we are a donation/foster based rescue without the luxury of a trainer on (volunteer) staff. She was good with the cats, at her previous foster's however, my catboy is 22 years old and we don't use him to test, at his age. You may remember seeing Kate on the 10 o'clock news, when she came into the rescue, in February of this year. She was found under an overpass/bridge in Cincinnati. I do not have children so I can not say if she would be good or bad with them, based on (non) experience (lol) however, I believe she would be good. I do recommend a fenced yard, Kate has a lot of energy to run off. She is very loyal and would love to find her furever home!


This is Dayton! Dayton has quite the fan club as he was discovered when a concerned citizen found him in fairly rough shape and posted a plea for help. Long story short, Dayton ended up in our care. He was emaciated, severely matted, sick, and loaded with parasites. Those days are now behind him. Dayton has been a very easy going cat. He let us spend hours painstakingly cutting out mattes even after he was shaved. He is learning to sit on laps to get lovins but he is always up for petting and brushing wherever he may be lounging. He likes to eat and because of his emaciated state, we still feed him several small meals throughout the day. Recently, Dayton was introduced to some kittens and it just brought out a spark and fun energy in him! He loves to play with them and get rowdy. He is (for the most part) very gentle. Dayton is VERY interested in going outside and managed to push out the window screen once and jumped out of a 2nd story window. I would caution any adopter to be very aware of this as Dayton acted like a scared, feral cat when he was out and would not come to us (he had to be trapped.) A good home for Dayton would probably be a quiet home, with patient guardians. He is still a bit skittish. He would probably LOVE a young friend as he really enjoys his younger roommates. I would not suggest a home with established kitties as he has shown some aggression towards our cats when he is let out to roam the house.

Since 2013, Joseph's Legacy has been working to help all the animals we can.  Whether it is an animal that is homeless, needs re-homed or is in need of medical care.  We do not want any animal to suffer or be put down because of something that is out of their control.
