A Cat Named Bruce Inspires a Sanctuary

Cat rescues and sanctuaries each have their unique way of getting started. Today, we learn about a small cat rescue in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, fittingly named Bruce’s Legacy.

Rose Goodwine, founder and president, started the rescue in 2014 with the mission to place rescued cats and kittens into loving, permanent homes. The 501(c)3 group also wants to prevent pet overpopulation through spaying and neutering, and to educate the public about responsible pet ownership.

Some readers may know that Dexter is the shyest of the three chatty cats. But did you know he’s also the most dramatic? As depicted in his latest Sunday Selfies.

Did you watch the Rose Parade?

First off, Happy New Year! I hope 2017 brings you joy, happiness and love. Now, did you watch the Rose Parade yesterday? If you did, I hope you saw the Lucy Pet float. I was one of the volunteers who had the wonderful opportunity to help decorate the Lucy Pet float this year.

While at BlogPaws in June last year, my fellow attendee (Jaimi) and I met the Lucy Pet team. Somehow the float was brought up and we were added to the float decoration team. It was a fantastic experience and something I would definitely do again.

Decorating the Float

Jaimi and I drove up to Irwindale bright and early on December 27th. We parked at a designated volunteer lot and then were Continue reading “Did you watch the Rose Parade?”
