In January of 2020 we were contacted by a family wanting to find placement for their 3 year old sheepdog/poodle mix who had some behavioral issues. She needed placement right away, and we had no immediate openings so we reached out to our friends at Paws-N-Claws Iowa to try and get her to safety.

They accepted her into their program and placed her with a foster (who also had a sheepdog/poodle mix) and she has THRIVED! They ended up adopting her and yesterday we got this awesome update photo. ❤️🐾

“It’s not an R. On my world, it means hope.”
You’d think after being found chained next to a deceased dog, then ending up still homeless a couple years later you would start to lose all hope. Lucky for us, our buddy Ray was found to be blind, so his other senses have SUPER strength!
Superman once said there’s a superhero in all of us, you just need to put on the cape.
Ray’s foster family finally got him the cape he’s been needing and the hope he was losing has started to come back! He now has the strength and courage to find the absolute best forever home!
All you need is a little red cape and some wonderful humans. ❤️

If you’d like to know more about Ray, you can find that here: https://www.facebook.com/1530760160273192/posts/3639369956078858/?d=n or simply contact The Pet Connection at 913-671-7387!

Late this morning The Pet Connection received a call about 3 domestic kittens and their momma wandering around a park in Kansas City, KS. The finder believes they were dumped.

Mama and kittens were quite literally climbing all over the finders lap and trying to get into passing cars. The Pet Connection's team sprung into action to find placement for these cats that were very clearly socialized. We begged and pleaded.

Within a couple hours, we had a promise from Friends of Kansas City, Kansas Animal Services to take in the SUPER friendly kittens on Monday, and thanks to a temporary foster and the finder they will now go to KCKAS on Monday.
A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone involved today that made this happen. Rescues that work as a team truly make a massive impact. And as for the furry friends that were rescued today, they're now safe and will be up for adoption soon!

Hi Pet Connection friends:

We know some of you saw Melody's post yesterday.

We know this because we have one generous supporter who will match donations up to $7,200 getting us closer and closer to our goal without a loan!!!! This is huge, doing the work without a loan will of course save even more money.

If you want to donate for the sanctuary new building you can do so at www.thepetconnection.net

Melody, is our director, she has been working for free or pennies for humane societies since 1997.

She has the opportunity to get a big chunk of the work done on our property in a couple of weeks. It will end up saving us about $25,000 over a 2 year period plus have our place done faster, which means we can have additional program revenue sooner. Score!!! However she need to borrow $20,000 for up front costs to make it happen it has to have it in the next couple of weeks.

Banks are not her friend but a loan may still be necessary to make this project happen. So if you or someone you know does these type of loans, please let Melody know. (We would have paperwork drawn up)

During covid many of our clients who are mostly rescuers and other humane societies...left dogs at our facilities and some were no longer able to fund them. We have cared for all of them and accepted responsibility for these critters. Unfortunately we rely on the sponsorships for operational costs and she had to re think her program.

Part of that re thinking was to delay the second building a bit but this opportunity is so great....because we have the help (reduced skilled labor) available sooner and we have to have the supplies necessary to get the job done.

Pm her if you think you could assist. Space at our facility is an asset.

Here is one of our finished areas at the new building....

Bubba with Saving Deathrow Dogs thinks it's pretty great!!!!

We don't just help dogs, we help cats too.

Sassy was a Melissa's Second Chances Rescue dog who started in foster care and then was boarded at Man's Best Friend while she worked with The Pet Connection trainers and volunteers. She then went to a TPC trainer for several months of board & train. She can be dog and people reactive (but the biggest love bug to people in her circle), and she needed just the right home so she could thrive. Melissa's and TPC's staff, as well as Hallmark, promoted her so we could find the right match. Melissa's and TPC's adoption teams coordinated with vetting potential adopters, and she had 7 sessions with her adopters under TPC trainer supervision before she went to her new home where she is an emotional support animal for a teen. We just got a report on Sassy (now Ripley) from her mom. She’s doing great in her home and loves sunbathing on the balcony. Sometimes it takes a village. Thank you to everyone who helped get her there. #thepetconnectionks #StrongerTogether

Good afternoon, i need a little help and you are just the ones to help, you always help so much if i have needed it before. So a friend of mine (he is a new friend of mine) got evicted from his Apartment today. He never told anyone until late last night that he had to be gone this morning at 8am or the sheriff would remove him. Anyhow he has 2 cats that are only a couple years old and are very friendly and he cares about a lot. But because of how he did things, he ended up just taking a few bags of clothes and 2 totes full of stuff ans just headed out with no plans and no where to go really. in doing so, he just left i his cats there because it broke his heart to have to leave them in the first place. so i need some sort of idea on what is best for these friendly kitties. if anyone knows of something other than taking these guys to the pound, i would be so appreciative. I will be checking my messages periodically, not just sitting here waiting. But thank you in advance.
