Adopted & Loved: Leon


It turns out Leon’s forever family was right here all along. In the midst of the shelter-in-place order, volunteers, fosters and adopters Leslie and Wendy asked if they could give sweet Leon a change of pace from the adoption center, and bring him home to foster for a bit. Well, that bit has turned into forever and we could not be more excited for everyone!

Leon, who is blind, needed someone with compassion, patience and understanding of his insecurities about navigating his world without vision. That’s just what he has with his new family, and because of that he is absolutely thriving! He has a new companion in Young at Heart alum Peanuttie (pictured right) and both are living their best lives. Thank you Leslie and Wendy for ALL that you do for the seniors of Young at Heart! We love you! ❤️
