About Our Rescue Group:

The Pet Connection, Inc. is a no-kill, non-profit animal shelter located in the Kansas City metro area. It's our intention to form a no-kill coalition
by educating the public, providing pet owner services and to find homes for unwanted and abandoned animals.
The core of our operation is not only an adoption and obedience center but the nerve center for all of our outreach and community education programs. Follow-up phone calls after adoptions, homeless pet intakes, networking and educational programs are just a few of our ongoing services. There are rents and salaries to pay as well as normal day to day costs of maintaining the shelter.

We are currently raising funds in hopes of expanding the following programs:

•Events and benefits
•Medical cost of pets and special needs
•Support to other rescues and individuals
•Community Education
•Feral cat colonies

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
