Elsa came to us positive for heartworm. She was treated at the end of October and needs to stay quiet while the nasty heartworms die off. Elsa is a sweet little girl, a little JRT-type dog. She is only 10 pounds and about two years old. She seems to get along well with dogs and cats and is already house- and crate-trained.

About PetsConnect! Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

PetsConnect is an all volunteer, foster home based program started in 2000. Over the years we have developed relationships with local shelters. We appreciate what they do, it's hard work. And we are thankful that they are willing to work with us. The animals in our program come from local animal shelters where many of them face euthanasia due to overcrowding or perhaps the animal has a medical problem requiring more care than a shelter environment can provide. Looking for a great gift? Check our our Gift program where you too can help the dogs/cats move from shelters to rescues and then to their forever homes!

Come Meet Our Pets...

PetsConnect depends on local stores to help us show off our wonderful animals available for adoption. As of January 2015 we are at the following stores: PetSmart Mishawaka, Petsmart Elkhart, and occasional other places. Please check out our calendar of events on our website. Go to Events. If you see an animal you like, then by all means, fill out an application and a volunteer will follow up and most will make arrangements. Our fosters have full lives too so it just depends. But we will do our best.

Our Adoption Process...

Fill out an application, be sure to fill it out as completely as possible: a volunteer will contact you and may ask you more questions to see if the animal you are wishing to adopt will be a good fit. Since our animals are in foster homes we know them fairly well. We may call your vet to confirm current pets are up to date on shots. Adoption fees: Most cats and Kittens are $100. We do have a no-declaw policy which means the adoption contract you sign when you adopt specifically states that you will not declaw the cat or kitten. Puppies average $250 and up, while dogs are $225, and some older dogs are less than $225. All animals are spayed and neutered prior to adoption, canines are micro chipped, up to date on shots. The adoption fee includes the registration for the micro chip and for dogs and puppies a Lupine brand collar or harness and leash.
PLEASE NOTE: an inquiry through Adopt a Pet or a similar website is not an application. We do our best to respond quickly to your inquiries but you can speed along the process by submitting an application to us directly. The application can be found here: http://petsconnect.org/applications_page.htm
