Leech Lake Legacy

Serving reservation animals and the people who love them.

Your donation will help ensure that we are able to continue the critical programs that we offer to Leech Lake Reservation animals and these owners.  These programs include low-cost spay/neuter and wellness clinics; transport and placement of homeless pets, and pet food distribution.

Each week, we work hand-in-hand with partners and pet owners on Leech Lake, Red Lake, and White Earth Reservation, and surrounding communities, to provide low-cost and important services to pets and pet owners in need.  We are successful because of the tremendous support we receive from our partner shelters and rescues, vets, vet techs, vet clinics, and, especially, our dedicated volunteers.  By working in partnership with so many different organizations and individuals we have positively impacted the lives of nearly 15,000 animals!

This is an especially critical time for our organization.  Your financial support is more important than ever as we seek a permanent home on Leech Lake Reservation from which to deliver our programs.

Since we began in May 2011, Leech Lake Legacy has served the animals and people of Leech Lake Reservation and surrounding communities by:

  • arranging weekly transports and holding monthly surrender events, through which we have safely placed and delivered nearly 8,000 animals to more than 30 partner shelters and rescues;
  • holding wellness clinics, where our volunteer vets have examined and vaccinated nearly 3,200 pets, and where we distributed more than 700 Seresto collars for flea and tick prevention;
  • holding spay/neuter clinics, where over 2,100 animals were sterilized;
  • distributing more than 670 dog houses and bales of straw to ensure outdoor Rez dogs have a warm place to sleep during the cold winters;
  • transporting and distributing hundreds of thousands of pounds of donated pet food, cat litter, and pet supplies; and
  • positively impacting the lives of nearly 15,000 animals and the people who love them!

Our volunteers travel far and commit much of their free time to make sure each clinic and event is as successful as possible, and we are very grateful for the support of our friends at Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, Leech Lake Tribal Police, Red Lake Rosie's Rescue, WE R Furr Feline Rescue, and all our partner shelters and rescues!

Mission:  Leech Lake Legacy is an animal welfare organization that empowers Native American communities to enrich the lives of animals by providing resources and sharing information.

Vision:  We envision a world where every reservation dog and cat is well cared for.

Core Belief: Leech Lake Legacy believes that by working together and collaborating with a larger network of animal welfare organizations in Minnesota, we will be able to do more for the animals and the pet owners of Leech Lake Reservation.

Together, we can do amazing things.  Together, we can save lives.  Together, we can make a difference.  Donate today!
