PetConnect Rescue News - May 2018  Edition
 Dear PetConnect Rescue Family,

May Day, May Day!! 

Look how you helped Titan and Tator! These two pups were rescued along with a number of other dogs, from a hoarding situation in West Virginia. 

Without you , PetConnect Rescue would not have been able to bring these two pups into safety. They were covered in sores, matted and starving. 

Today, Titan and Tator are living up at Muddy Paws Farm, where they are learning what it's like to be loved. 

All they need now are their forever homes. They have come such a long way in just a short period of time; the change is remarkable. Thank you for helping us make this possible.

Life saving stories are the heart and soul of PCR. Stay tuned to our heartwarming tales of rescue and renewed life. They are always right around the corner. 

Our annual Do More 24 event is in a couple of weeks, and our social media platforms will be full of the stories that show how terrific you (along with our cats and dogs) all are!

Tator Before and After

Titan before. 
 Want to see more of Titan?  Stay tuned...
If you've been thinking about trying fostering, now is a great time to step up. Here's to sunny days ahead! 

With Warmest Wishes,
Catherine Edwards
Executive Director
Are you ready to #reclaim kindness
Support  #Do More 24 this month and help power 
your community!

Do More 24 is May 17-18, noon to noon
Early giving starts NOW

All they want is a soft bed, a safe space, 
food and love. That's what our rescues get when they come into our care. We want to continue pulling as many animals from 
 high-kill situations as possible. 
Will you help us?

Do More 24 is the DC Metro area's largest 
 24-hour online fundraiser powered by United Way of the National Capital Area as a way to celebrate all the local nonprofits working 
 hard in our communities. Last year, 
 PetConnect Rescue brought in over 
$9,000 for our animals!  
This Do More 24, let's remember who we are. We're the voice for the voiceless. We're the home for the homeless. We're a village. 
Let's come together and #reclaimkindness

Your change today 
can change 
their tomorrows.
