Who stopped in.

Riley, office dog at Contour Construction
“My person, Shelia walks me around McIntire to take care of, you know, business… and I just can’t go back to the office without coming in for a Plato Salmon treat. Shelia says they’re good for my skin and coat, but I just love how yummy they are!”

Desiree Sides, McGinnis Meadows Ranch
“Our dogs, Sparky and Gus, had really scratchy, scruffy skin so we called Animal Connection for help. After changing our dog’s food to fresh meat and vegetables, they are sleek and shiny and no more skin issues! And their breath smells better too! What a relief!”

Marisa Conti
“We love to support local businesses. So when Animal Connection discovered Bowhaus Dog Treats, we knew we had to give them a try. They are a  small batch, soft treat for senior dogs made with organic ingredients. We even tasted them.. they are so good! Our elderly dog loves them and they are gentle on her teeth.”

Ann Armstrong
“I discovered several colonies of feral cats in the city of Charlottesville and thanks to Animal Connection, they can get some healthy meals. They are great about getting donations from some of their suppliers and making it possible for me to feed them on a small budget.”
