  • #DoMore24 is less than 2 weeks away! Brooke & Sparky are eager to help because they know #RescueNeverRests Get ready to help...the animals are counting on us!

  • Hillary (formerly Tchoukou) is one happy kitty! Her mom writes: " I just wanted to write you all a note to let you know that Tchoukou (now Hillary) is doing well and such a sweet kitty! She spends most of her days in the window in the sunshine or playing with her toy mice or snuggling in. She's become quite the talker too-every day I come home from work I am greeted with a chorus of meows till I pick her up and give her snuggles." Welcome home Hillary - we think you you've found an awesome forever home!

  • Adorable, affectionate & smart...what more could you ask for? Check out Benjamin, a 1 yr old Yorkie/Griffon mix on our website! #AdoptDontShop #HowCuteIsMyBeard

  • NEW ARRIVAL! Ghille is a fun-loving and playful, 6 month old Catahoula/Hound mix who weighs about 28 pounds. She is great with kids and other dogs and will make a wonderful family companion. #AdoptDontShop #PuppyCuteness

  • PERFECT DAY FOR ICE CREAM! Check out the Ice Cream pups! These adorable 8 week old siblings were left in a box, outside an ice cream store, hence their names. The pups are all happy-go-lucky with your typical puppy energy and curiosity. While they appear to be Whippet/Chi mixes, with the litter's diverse appearance, breed is truly a best guess. For more information, please visit petconnectrescue.org.

  • Meet Lucy Mae a 10 week old Shepherd/Spaniel mix. Lucy Mae is currently a petite bundle of cuteness weighing in at 8 pounds, but we expect her to be a medium sized adult. While Lucy Mae enjoys the lap of her foster mom she also is having a blast romping around with her larger furry friends in her foster home. She's a sweet puppy with typical puppy energy and curiosity. For more information, please visit petconnectrescue.org.

  • COVERED!! "Noodle" the doxie mix will be coming to PCR on Saturday!

    FOSTER NEEDED.... this Saturday, May 23rd. This little cutie would love to leave his SC shelter days behind him and come up to be a PCR dog on Saturday. He is approx. 1 yr old and reported to be fine with other dogs and children. Naming rights go to the foster who can take him. :)
    If you can help out with this sweet boy, please email Kim at klarimer@petconnectrescue.org.

  • Peter is the life of the party! This darling boy just absolutely loves everyone and everything, kids, dogs, you name it. Peter is a Pointer mix looking for a fun, loving household to join, he is an excellent family dog. Peter has energy for days, but he is quite the snuggler when he’s all tuckered out. We’d love to find him a big, grassy, fenced in yard to run around in, (maybe even with a canine friend)! Peter is potty trained, house trained, and crate trained. We think there may be a bit of hound in him, do you see it? He looks a bit like a 50lb Italian Greyhound, and sound like one too. He loves to talk and actually mimics me when I pretend to howl! So if you are looking for a singing buddy, he’s your guy. Peter is only 1 year old, and has pure, innocent puppy spirit. Better grab this guy up quick, he's a prize! For more information, please visit petconnectrescue.org.

  • PetConnect Rescue alum Ripley obviously has made herself very much at home with her adopted family! All incoming bags require her personal inspection. What a cutie! Welcome home Ripley!

Muddy Paws Farm – A Rescue Center for Dogs in Mt. Airy, MD


Visit us during events and volunteer opportunities…

Muddy Paws Farm is PetConnect Rescue’s refuge for homeless dogs on their path to new, loving forever homes. This transitional residence is a beautiful 5 acre property located in Mt Airy, MD. The facility has been in operation since 2010 and is currently a way station for some of our dogs arriving from shelters. A resident caretaker oversees the home, the property, and care of the dogs, essentially creating a hybrid between a temporary shelter and large, loving foster home situation.

In addition to giving animals a temporary home, Muddy Paws serves as a site for adoption and fundraising events, as well as small community gatherings. It is also a location for volunteers to interact directly with our rescued dogs and learn new training and socialization techniques. Donated items such as leashes, collars, food, bedding and crates are kept here, giving adoption coordinators and foster families a centralized location for obtaining supplies.

We are excited about the volunteer opportunities at Muddy Paws. We invite and encourage our wonderful volunteers to consider committing to a regular schedule, such as once a week or twice a month visits.
