Thank you for joining us on this journey
PetConnect Rescue News - November 2017 Edition

Dear PetConnect Rescue Family,

 

In this season of gratitude, I would like to take a moment to thank all of you for being a part of this wonderful animal rescue organization. It is clear that you join me in caring about abandoned cats and dogs and choose to help make life brighter for so many of them. When the pleas for help go out, you respond. The need is always there, whether it be for fosters, transporters, pet supplies, help at events... the list goes on and on. I want to let you know just how much you are appreciated, and together, we are making a difference.

 

Warm Wishes,

 

Catherine Edwards

Executive Director

Here's What's Happening...
Holiday Supply Drive
Each year, PetConnect Rescue holds a supply drive to help sustain us through the winter months. We are looking for volunteers to make large donation boxes, arrange for placement of them, and manage those donations. And, of course, we need people to donate! This is a great way to involve the whole family and the community. 

Here's what we need most:
  • Donated (not loaned) Medium & Large Wire Dog Crates
  • New or gently used cat and dog beds
  • Sheets (can be used)
  • Bath & Beach Towels (can be used)
  • Stainless Steel Food Bowls
  • Dog & Cat Food (meat as 1st ingredient)
  • Wet Canned Kitten and Cat Food (Royal Canin and Proplan preferred)

PetConnect Rescue Updates
PetConnect Rescue and Botanero Restaurant teamed up to make Mutt-garitas?

That's right. PetConnect Rescue founder, Lizette Chanock, tied on her apron and got to work Monday, November 6th, making a drink of her own creation, Mutt-garitas. 
Cheers to @lchanock for guest bartendering tonight @botanerorockville! The Mutt-gharitas were delicious and the crowd was fabulous. #botanero #kingfarm #petconnectrescue #adopt #adoptdontshop #rescue #support #guestbartender #npo
Thanks to Botanero Restaurant for supporting local non-profit organizations, and thank you to everyone who came out to support PetConnect Rescue. 

Interested in making your own Mutt-garita? Enjoy this seasonal concoction.

1 1/2 cups cranberry juice 
3/4 cup fresh lime juice
3/4 cup tequila
1/2 cup orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau or Triple Sec
ice cubes

Stir all ingredients together until blended.  Serve over ice in sugar- or salt-rimmed glasses, garnished with fresh cranberries and lime wedges, if desired.
Did you know that November is Adopt a Senior Dog Month?

Meet Lefty. Poor Lefty was once loved and a family cared for him. Once, he was well-fed and groomed. Once, someone took the time to house train him and show him how much fun it was to walk on a leash. Once, someone paid a lot of money to have his teeth cleaned and repaired. So, how is it that one day, Lefty was found in a crate, on sale for $75, at a neighborhood Flea Market?

Luckily for him, one of PetConnect Rescue's 
shelter partners was at the Flea Market that day. They saw Lefty and starting counting the money in their purses. No way were they going to leave him there. Thankfully, they were able to take this little man home from the flea market. Eventually, he found his way into PetConnect Rescue's new senior dog program, where we welcomed Lefty with open arms. PetConnect Rescue is specially equipped to handle older gents just like Lefty. We're so glad that he's here and can't wait to find Lefty a real forever home.

$75 for this gem? Those silly people.. little did they know that Lefty is priceless!
