We are a new rescue organization made up of experienced rescue people. We are awaiting our approval from the IRS for our 501(c)(3). Here is our story.
First, Legends of the Paws got its name from Mo the Legendary Chessie of Idaho. Mo is 14 years old and spent nine months out in the Idaho wilderness surviving the worst Idaho winter in recorded history, wolves and near-starvation. In July 2017, she wandered onto a ranch and collapsed. That’s where we come in. Our president, Cheri, checked her out and suspected that she was the missing Mo. She took Mo into her home until her people could come and see her — after having their hopes dashed so many times, they were hesitant to hope again. But, they were rewarded because there was no question this was their Mo. She was officially a legend. Mo is home with her family. We have adopted her indomitable spirit for Legends of the Paws. They all have a story to tell.
These are photos of our wonderful pilot from Pilots and Paws who came to Scarlett and Spencer’s rescue on July 21st to get them emergency medical care. Their rescue would have been impossible without this help.
