PetConnect Rescue News - December 2018 Edition
Dear PetConnect Rescue Family,
It's our last newsletter of the year, and the holiday season is in full swing! We are celebrating another great year of saving hundreds of lives and finding wonderful forever homes for our precious rescues. They deserve nothing but happily-ever-afters. And thanks to you, they get them!
Rescue doesn't happen on a schedule, but because you have given your love, time, talent, and treasures, we are able to take needy dogs and cats from hopelessness to homes, 24/7, 365 days a year. Regardless of your role from rescue to adoption, you are a crucial part of every animal's successful journey, and for that, we simply say, "Thank You." 
As we reflect on the year nearly gone and begin to focus on a new year filled with even more rescues, I wish you all a joyous, peaceful, and love-filled holiday season.

Help Get Them Home For The Holidays!
Shana & Smitty


Hello everyone, I'm Shana, 
a 9 year old, 65 pound Lab mix and this is my best friend Smitty. He's 4 years old and is a Dalmation/Lab mix. Sadly we lost our human a while back so we're looking for a new home and a new person to love. Can you help us find our forever home by Christmas time? 

Hi, I'm Marshall. PetConnect Rescue recently took me in and I'm so thankful. I was in a home that had too many cats and I was overwhelmed. I'm looking for a new home with maybe one other cat and no dogs. Do you have a quiet home and some love you'd be willing to share with me? Please!
