And we'll never stop giving our help to the many dogs in our area that need us.

​Meet Sparky Foundation


Founded in 2017 from the passionate heart of a furever animal lover, Patti Leonard,  Sparky Foundation has worked to make positive impact for dogs in need in the Triad Area.


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.


Sparky Foundation is a 501(3)c charitable organization that rescues, adopts, and supports animal wellness programs. To date Sparky Foundation has rescued and adopted out approximately 50 dogs since our inception in 2017.

We depend on donations to be able to rescue, foster and get these dogs adopted. The animals we rescue are usually in dire situations - whether being on the euthanize list at the shelter (due to their breed type or medical situation), or cases of neglect and cruelty.

Working many years with various rescue groups, shelters, humane societies and even an animal cruelty group, a need was recognized for help in different areas and Sparky Foundation was created.

Patti's goal is to work within our community and network with other groups to save as many animals as possible!
