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

Transforming lives...

This is what PetConnect Rescue aims to do each and every day. Not all of our stories are as visually transformative as Titan's and McGregor's but rest assured, each animal PetConnect Rescue saves has a story to tell. A story of hope and of changed endings. You are the reason we can keep doing the work we do and for that, we are so grateful.

If you've been thinking about trying fostering, now is a great time to try temporarily fostering an animal. Many of our regular fosters have vacations planned. Welcome to summer!


With Warmest Wishes,
Catherine Edwards
Executive Director

Paws For The News
An Inspiring Young Woman (And Her Dad)

Meet Lacey Young and her dad, David. David is a longtime superstar transporter for PetConnect Rescue. After watching and sometimes helping her Dad, Lacey decided she wanted to use a school internship opportunity to explore animal welfare organizations and shelter use. She visited the shelter in Fayetteville, West Virginia, and then last weekend, Lacey and her Dad drove almost  seven hours to the Florence Area Humane Society in South Carolina. Lacey spent some time there learning about the ins and outs of running a shelter.  For her, the hardest part was watching people surrender the animals. While some were upset, many were not. After a couple of days, Lacey and her dad packed up the car and brought back 2 grateful dogs and 4 kittens who are now all up for adoption. This fall, Lacey is headed to Virginia Tech where she will undoubtedly put her stamp on the world. L acey, you inspire us.  Thank you!

Dog of the Month:
Bohdi
Cat of the Month:
Peaches

Hi, everyone. I'm Bohdi. People think I'm a Husky/Samoyed mix. 
Who knows, and honestly, who cares?
I'm AWESOME. I'm super friendly 
(except with cats), I'm crate and 
house trained, and I even love baths. 
Y es, I am that perfect.

Meow, I'm Peaches. I'm only 12
weeks old.  I'll be honest, I'm cute. 
I love climbing on my cat tree and snuggling in my foster dog 
brother's bed. He doesn't mind
because we  get along that well. 
Want to see if we could be a match?

You Won't Want To Miss A Thing!
