Brooke’s Legacy saves pets from euthanization and finds their forever homes

Every animal deserves a second chance, and Brooke’s Legacy gives them just that.
Brooke’s Legacy was found after the tragic death of Brooke Ashley Miller.
It happened on the day of her 18th birthday when Brooke was driving to her birthday party along with her puppy, Mia.
Sadly, she was involved in a car accident and never made it to her destination. The puppy lived, but Miller was rushed to the hospital where she died a few days later.
Miller was loved by everyone in her community and was known to be greatly fond of animals. Therefore, in order to keep her memory alive and to extend her passion for helping animals, Miller’s mom created the Brooke’s Legacy Animal Rescue.
To this day, Brooke’s Legacy continues to rescue thousands of animals and helps them find their forever homes.
In 2015, they were able to find homes for 255 cats and dogs, and all of their adoptable pets are ones that were soon to be euthanized at kill shelters.
Brooke’s Legacy is a nonprofit and does not have a shelter location. Instead, it is a volunteer and foster-home based organization, with some of their cats being located in cat condos at Petco in Naples.
Its next adoption event will be held on Saturday, Sept. 10 at Petco in Naples. The event will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
If interested in becoming a volunteer or foster home for these pets, check out its website at
