Our Mission

We are over run with fantastic spay/neutered dogs.  As about our weekly promotions on line or at our pet adoption events.

Call Jeri for details


We welcome donations of blankets, towels, paper towels, leashes, collars and dog houses.  We also need monetary donations for the upkeep of the rescue.  We spend about $400.00 every 6 weeks on gravel and fence repair.  You can send donations to:  Rusty's Legacy 139 Lytle Mtn Road, Marion, NC  28752

Thank you for helping us save dogs from high kill shelters.
