Frequent Questions

Have you ever had a question and didn’t know where to find the answer? If so, you’ve come to the right place.

Below is a list of questions most frequently asked. If you cannot find the answer to your question, please don't hesitate to ask!

  1. What does your organization do?
  2. How can I get involved?
  3. If I were to donate funds, how is my money used?
  4. Can you take my pet into your rescue?
  5. Do you help people pay for vet bills when they can't afford regular or emergency care?
  1. Dolly's Legacy Animal Rescue is a foster home based rescue in Lincoln, NE. Our mission is to save orphaned and abandoned pets from overcrowded shelters and find them loving, forever homes.

  2. The only way that we can save animals is with the help of foster homes. Being a foster family has rewards beyond the essential value of helping a pet in need find a new home. For some, it is a chance to have an animal companion without making a lifetime commitment, or to try new companions for an existing pet. Foster Care is critical to our rescue efforts, the more homes we have, the more animals we can save. Becoming a foster family is a very rewarding experience, and can be a lot of fun. There are often tears shed when a foster finally finds a home of their own, but knowing you have saved a life and opened up space to save another is truly rewarding.

  3. Your gift will help us to achieve our mission of saving the lives of orphaned & abandoned pets. 100% of your donation goes directly to the care of pets in our rescue and is tax-deductible.

  4. We do not take in owner surrendered pets. The mission of Dolly's Legacy is to rescue homeless pets from death row at crowded shelters. Please read the information at this link if you are considering not keeping your pet: http://dollyslegacyanimalrescue.org/adopt/rehoming-your-pet/
