Parachutes  for Pets and the Backlund family are pleased to develop Lily’s Legacy! This program began in 2021 and we have supported over 90 children with your support. 

Pets can help children on their worst days. They can provide comfort, and unconditional love. At Parachutes we understand this and this is why Lily’s Legacy is so important to us. We want to ensure that if a child is in transition, they are able to stay with their pet when moving to a new home.

This is a groundbreaking new community program designed to assist in keeping children in care with their pets. You can read more about this amazing program here!

Lily’s Legacy Pet Stories

December, 2021, Nemo required emergency care to save his life and keep him with his young owner.  Nemo had a full recovery.
Knuckles young owner had just received an organ transplant when Knuckles developed an abscess around his jaw. With the family being busy at the hospital it went undetected for a few days until his whole face was swollen. When a recovering child asks you to save his cat, you save his cat! We are happy to report Knuckles is happy and healthy today and so is his owner!
In a matter of hours our community came together. Cocoa required to be neutered and have his vaccines updated in order to move to a new home with his young owners.
