HOW TO HELP HURRICANE RESCUE PETS

Animal Connnection went right to the business of helping others as soon as Hurricanes Harvey and Irma hit the shores. We have dog trainer friends in the Dallas area who were able to get a large trailer and fill it with things that people and their pets need during this time of extreme crisis. We also sent funds to Florida to purchase food and supplies for dogs and cats in the shelters. We are still accepting donations to help those in need.  If you want to participate, please come by the store. Your donations are greatly appreciated.
