May Is For  Mothers And Their Babies
PetConnect Rescue News - May 2019  Edition

 Dear PetConnect Rescue Family,

Calling all mothers! With Mother's Day coming up, we're paying special homage to the momma dogs and cats who were perfect moms to their puppies and kittens despite sometimes horrific beginnings. 

The little ones have found their forever homes; now it's time for these amazing moms to have their day in the sun and find their own loving homes.
Dogs like Katie, who was thrown over a fence with her 7 puppies before being taken in by PetConnect Rescue. And cats like Callie, who came from a stressful shelter setting with her 5 babies. They nourished and cared for their puppies and kittens until they were old enough to be on their own. These moms deserve their own happy endings now, and we're going to make sure they get them!
Callie & Kittens 
We would not have been able to save these precious families without your help. Thank you for making this possible!
Life saving stories are the heart and soul of our rescue. Stay tuned for more heartwarming tales of second chances. There are new ones every day.
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!   If you've been thinking about trying fostering, now is a great time to step up. Here's to helping more animals find their happy-ever-after! 

With Warmest Wishes,
Lisa Velenovsky

Pe tConnect Rescue Gets Air Time In China Thanks To... 
Bingru Sees America!

Bingru Wang is a reporter who makes  short   videos  for a station called Phoenix TV Hong Kong with a current running series called Bingru Sees America.  Why did Bingru want to feature PetConnect Rescue?

Bingru said, " The purpose of interviewing PetConnect is to show our audience how well-organized and planned the American adoption system is. In China, there are not so many dog shelters which left hundreds of thousands of dogs on the street or even been abused. We also hope to use the good example in the U.S. to raise awareness and improve the adoption process in China."

Summer love is just a paw away!



My name is Terrance, and I am a 
 Chi-weenie! Made you laugh, right? It's true. I'm only 13 pounds, but it's 
 all pure fun. I love to play with anyone who is willing to join along.  I am about 2 years old, but I am holding on to my inner puppy.  I would love to find a family that would take me along for lots of cool adventures.  If you have a place in your heart for little lowriders like me, please fill out an app!

Love a kitty with a sweet, purring motor?  That's me all over.  Aria is my name, and I am as beautiful as my name, both on the inside and out.  I have had a rather rough journey, but PetConnect Rescue has helped me recover from all of that.  I am ready to find someone who enjoys the perfect lap kitty. I have lots of affection to give and can't wait to find out if we are a good match for one another!

You Won't Want to Miss a Thing!
