Baxter Lee, CEO
Baxter, a rescued Newfoundland/Border Collie mix, took the lead at the Wags and Menace Make a Difference Foundation in 2006, continuing the legacy established by founding dogs Wags and Menace. Malnourished and abused when adopted, he quickly recovered and blossomed under Cindy Lee’s care. Now that he is legally the CEO of the Foundation, Baxter is eager to be a part of the Foundation’s education program, helping children and adults gain empathy for animals. He also wants to pay his good fortune forward and urges other humans to adopt rescues from a shelter or donate to the Wags and Menace Make a Difference Foundation.
A Tribute To CEO, Baxter Lee
Baxter Lee, was an orphaned Newfoundland/Border Collie mix puppy, rescued by Cindy, that took the lead at the Wags and Menace Make a Difference Foundation in 2006, continuing the legacy established by the founding dogs, Wags and Menace. Baxter came to Cindy malnourished and very abused when she adopted him. He quickly recovered, and blossomed under Cindy's care. At this point he was legally recognized as the first CEO of the Foundation. Baxter was eager to be a part of the foundation's grassroots education program, educating children, as well as adults, to gain empathy for animals, domestic and wild around the globe. He always wanted to pay his good fortune forward and urged other humans to adopt rescues from a shelter, or donate to the Wags and Menace Make a Difference Foundation.
Baxter’s legacy will always be remembered for his incredible contributions and emergency medical care funding to help so many animals in need around the globe with Wags and Menace Make a Difference Foundation. While Baxter has passed over the “Rainbow Bridge” he will remain honorary CEO of the foundation. His grassroots humane education efforts and emergency medical funding around the globe will continue on as part of his legacy.
Taylor Eubanks Receives Wags and Menace Make a Difference Scholarship Award
In 2019, Baxter Lee, CEO, and Cindy Lee, President of the Wags and Menace Make a Difference Foundation, decided that after seven years of mentoring Taylor Eubanks, the foundation would show their appreciation by awarding Taylor with a very special "Wags and Menace Make a Difference Scholarship". Taylor has been actively involved at a volunteer level with the foundation for many years. During this time, Baxter tasked Cindy Lee, President of the foundation, the responsibility of mentoring Taylor in the many areas of humane education, animal welfare studies, grassroots efforts and advocacy.
Taylor has accomplished amazing things while volunteering with, and for the foundation, leading grassroots initiatives like “Color with Baxter Contest” where she received the “Silver” award from the Girl Scouts. You can read more about this contest further down on this page. She also led many blanket donation drives within her community over the years as well. These donations have allowed so many animals in need at various shelters to have a warm comfy blanket to snuggle down in while awaiting their forever home family to rescue them.
This very special scholarship that Baxter Lee, CEO, and Cindy Lee, President of the Wags and Menace Make a Difference Foundation felt was so deserved, will help Taylor with many of her scholastic needs as she prepares to further her education at the college level. The foundation has seen Taylor truly grow from a passionate child wanting to make a difference in the world when it comes to humane education and ethical treatment of animals. Into an aspiring young adult beginning new chapters of her life as she readies herself for college. Baxter and Cindy could not be prouder of the seven years Taylor has volunteered with the foundation.
