The Pet Connection
Experienced Behavioral Trainers, Community Resource and Animal Rescue
"They have changed my reactive dog’s life. She was scared and reactive to people, dogs, and the TV. She can now go on walks, relax with the TV on, and she can meet new people at our home. She even enjoys hosting parties with us! Do not hesitate to contact them if your dog is having a behavioral issue!" - Mikaelee
"At TPC you will find a team wholly dedicated to dogs who have been largely forgotten. TPC is the second chance for those dogs. They helped me place a shelter dog who was going on nearly two years without placement. This dog was in their care for exactly 20 days before they found him a home and offered continued services for the family that adopted. I can’t say enough good things about The Pet Connection." - Zeinab
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit with a mission to bring and keep pets and families together. All proceeds will go towards the animals and families we serve.

Where do Proceeds Go?
All money raised from our raffles goes towards our mission to bring and keep pets with families, which includes scholarships for rescue pets and pets of low-income families needing our behavioral training and boarding/care services. The services we provide to many of the pets in our behavioral program are paid by donations. Pets in rescues and shelters, who would otherwise likely be euthanized, are rehabilitated to relieve their fears and anxieties to become adoptable! Families, who would otherwise likely have to surrender their pet, are able to use our low or no-cost behavioral program services to keep their pet with their family! We would like to think that whiskey lovers will feel good knowing that your raffle purchase makes a difference in the lives of pets and low-income families we serve, even if you do not win. If whiskey isn’t your thing, we would appreciate your donation on our website https://www.thepetconnection.org. We'd love to have you volunteer with us, and even to Like and Share our social media posts @thepetconnection.
