Giving Back | Lionel’s Legacy Adoptable Senior Dogs
As you may know, I volunteer with Lionel’s Legacy senior dog rescue as their photographer. They are such a wonderful rescue, helping so many older dogs in need. Sometimes dogs come to them whose owners have passed away, sometimes the previous owner couldn’t keep up with vet bills, sometimes they were rescued from a high-kill shelter, or a whole host of other reasons. But Lionel’s Legacy cares for them all the same. The dogs get proper veterinary care, good food, and love. Oh, so much love! Every dog Lionel’s Legacy saves is sent into a foster family. They are brought into a home environment so the transition from their old home to their new one is as easy as possible. The coordination, fundraising, and work Lionel’s Legacy does is truly amazing.
Last weekend, we had a picnic! Foster families were invited to bring their Lionel’s Legacy foster dogs and I would be there to photograph them for the website, Facebook, Petfinder, etc. Boy, oh boy! I didn’t know what I was in for! 18 dogs and their people showed up to have photos taken. EIGHTEEN! IN TWO AND A HALF HOURS! I think that was more than I’ve ever done in that amount of time. Thank goodness for all the volunteers who helped out at the picnic and for my trusty sidekick, Greg! It couldn’t have been done without them and I am forever grateful for their help!
Most of the dogs here are currently available at Lionel’s Legacy. I believe a few are still getting their checkups and will be ready for adoption very soon. If you see a pup you like, please get in touch with Lionel’s!
Can’t take a dog into your home right now? That’s ok! Would you consider making a donation to help care for these wonderful pups? (And no, they didn’t ask me to say that.)
So, now what you’ve all been waiting for! Leave me a comment and tell me who is your favorite!
Ooh! One more thing! We are in discussions of making a calendar, so if you’re interested, follow Westway Studio and Lionel’s Legacy on Facebook or message me your contact info so I can get in touch when it’s all ready!

From the bottom of my heart we are so incredibly grateful for your time and dedication to helping us showcase and promote our beautiful seniors through your incredible photography. Every time you take their glamour shots the public sees the beauty in older doggies and our adoptions increase. You help bring awareness to our cause and to each of our beautiful senior sweethearts. We consider you a part of our team and we thank you for the countless hours you have donated to helping our seniors find forever homes!
