Sparky Foundation is a family based dog rescue that was started by Patti Leonard in 2017. Our goal is to help save as many lives as we can and help them find loving homes for the happily ever after story book ending that they all deserve! 


After many years of working with various groups (rescues, shelters, humane societies, etc.), we saw a need for help in different areas and the Sparky Foundation was formed.

Our goal is to work within our community and network with other groups to save as many dogs as possible.

Who is "Sparky"?

Sparky and his sister Raven were rescued from a flea market and were a big part of our lives.  Sparky was Jenny's dog and Raven lived with Judy, Both were spoiled by the whole family and very much loved.

We do what we do because of our love for them, for the love of the animals and because every animal deserves to be loved and cherished - to be family. We named the foundation after Sparky so his name would live on and continue to do good in this world!
