Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Rescue Connection is a small rescue group. We take in animals into our home and asses thier medical needs and likes and dislikes. We are not picky what breed we take. We rescue from shelters, private homes and do alot of networking with other rescues to find permanent loving homes. We spay/neuter our rescues before adoption unless they are too young. We use People For Animals spay/neuter clinic in Hillside, NJ for altering/shots, they will alter at age 4 months. We try to housebreak all dogs/puppies while we have them in our care. We have pets of our own, so usually they all get along with dogs, cats and children.

About Our Rescue Group:

I have been involved with volunteering with animals for30 years, I started volunteering for People For Animals in Hillside at their spay/neuter clinic, stayed there and eventually sat on their Board of Directors for ten years. I love animals, I rescued my first dog at 18. Laura has always had a love for all animals as well, she has a special touch with scared/frightened dogs that helps them move forward. She has a calm pack of dogs in her home and helps each dog/pup that she rescues. We love matching families with each dog, we cry over it. We love helping people and animals. It's a win win for us.

Our Adoption Process:

We have an application for everyone to fill out, emails, we respond to daily, we love phone conversations to get a better feel for the people interested in adopting one of our rescues. The application is reviewed and vet references are followed up on. Once we establish a good potential home, we ask that they come to meet the dog/pup in one of our homes. Adoption donation for dogs/puppies is $250.00 and that includes medical of altering, distemper shot, and rabies, if it's a dog over one, heartworm testing. Cats and kittens is $100.00, including medical.

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.
