devoted to connecting pets with loving and responsible homes,
providing information and resources that will enhance the lives
of both people and animals, being a virtual community center for
pet owners everywhere, and a forum for people to exchange information
and connect with other nearby animal lovers. Long term goals include
a foundation that will fund low-cost, state-of-the-art veterinary
clinics across the country and a sanctuary for homeless animals.
PetConnect.Us was conceived in spring, 2008, during my quest
to adopt a dog. After searching countless websites and looking
into the faces of so many dogs that needed homes, it became my
mission to find families for all the homeless animals. I came
up with a place people can go online when they want to welcome a new animal into their
lives. Thus, PetConnect.Us was born.
PetConnect.Us covers Southern California. Viewers can search in their
areas for shelters, rescues (including wildlife), and all types
of pet services and supplies. We have articles, training advice,
success stories, a calendar of local events, and lists of aid
and emergency providers.
our goal, our mission, and our pleasure to aid in the placement
into loving homes of as many pets as possible. We won’t
stop there. We will continue to help new pet families navigate
the fun and exciting world of living with a companion animal by
providing links to local animal services and supplies, training
tips, and veterinarian advice.
In December 2011, PetConnect.Us became a 501(c)3 charitable organization (Federal ID #45-1425334). Our dream is to start a foundation that will fund low-cost,
state-of-the-art veterinary clinics where no one gets turned away
because of inability to pay. We hope to open a sanctuary to
take in, rehabilitate, and re-home animals in need.
PetConnect.Us is informative, helpful, user-friendly, efficient,
fun, and has cute animal pictures.
