TheCanine Connection is a 501c3 organization and donations are tax deductible. The Canine Connection has been operating in the interest of saving dogs, officially, since 2003. To date, we have rescued over 760 dogs, pups, and a handful of cats and kittens along the way! We're located in Gladwin, MI on 10 acres. The dogs here live in our home with us and have safe and wonderful outside spaces to run and play. The dogs are all fed a species appropriate raw diet for optimal health, which is very important to us.
