PetsConnect! Inc. Animal rescue in South Bend, IN

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!

Additional adoption info

ATTN:
When using the built-in contact form, please put your email address in the text of your inquiry! We are having problems with the automated forwarding.
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
