Ways to help

Rusty's Legacy is an all volunteer organization with no paid staff, so there are LOTS of opportunities to help as a volunteer!


How you can help:

  • ASSIST at our shelter in Marion with cleaning kennels, feeding, walking and playing with the dogs. 

  • VOLUNTEER at our Adoption Events!  We could always use extra hands to set up/break down for events, answer questions for potential adopters and walk/play for the dogs

  • FOSTER a Dog 

    • We ALWAYS need foster families. The more foster families we have, the more animals we can save. Contact us to find out more about fostering! ​

  • DONATE to our cause!

    •  Sponsor a spay/neuter for one of our dogs​, $50 helps us get this done!​

    • donate to vet costs. We have a number of dogs that have injuries or illnesses that require multiple trips to the vet for care. Please consider donating money to our medical costs.

    • Sponsor a kennel at the rescue. 


    ADOPT from us!  Open your hearts and your home to one of our rescue dogs

Any help goes a long way - whatever you can do to assist we appreciate it!
