PetConnect Rescue was founded in 2005, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, and has evolved into a vibrant animal rescue organization. Our mission is to save the lives of dogs and cats that have been abandoned and place them in loving and permanent homes. On a daily basis, we respond to email and phone pleas for help for dogs and cats imminently slated for euthanasia. We pull these animals into rescue from over-extended local shelters as well as rural shelters from West Virginia to Georgia. PetConnect Rescue is a non breed-specific organization and we are committed to stepping forward whenever we can and wherever there is the greatest need.
PetConnect Rescue arranges for medical services for our rescues, which can range from routine treatments such as vaccinations and blood tests to serious medical conditions such as broken bones and embedded collars. All animals that come through PetConnect Rescue are spayed or neutered to help stem the terrible problem of pet overpopulation.
The rescues that come into our care are primarily placed in foster homes, although some are boarded with reputable kennels or at vet practices. Our foster volunteers provide loving care and socialization for these animals while they await their forever homes. Thanks to donation drives we are able to pass on supplies to our foster families such as crates, food, collars, toys, bedding etc.
The core mission of PetConnect is to rescue abandoned animals and place them in safe, loving and permanent homes. Time and again, potential adopters tell us that they are willing to wait to adopt from us because of the comfort level they have in working with our organization. We do our utmost to take the nervousness, uncertainty and difficulty out of adopting a pet and support the adoption process every step of the way. The level of volunteerism in all of this is heartwarming. Because of the dedication and commitment of our volunteers we are able to find loving homes for all of these animals who otherwise would not have had a chance.
In the summer of 2011, PetConnect opened Muddy Paws Farm, a refuge for homeless animals on their path to new, loving forever homes. Muddy Paws will not only be used as a temporary home for our animals, but as a site for small fundraising events, and a place for volunteers to offer their time and talents to help PetConnect.
