Petconnect Rescue - Potomac Pet Shelter

PetConnect Rescue was founded in 2005, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, and has evolved into a vibrant animal rescue organization. Our mission is to save the lives of abandoned dogs and cats and place them in loving and permanent homes. Each day, we respond to desperate email and phone pleas to rescue dogs and cats imminently slated for euthanasia. We pull these animals into rescue from over-extended shelters between Maryland and Georgia. PetConnect Rescue is a non-breed-specific organization, and we are committed to stepping forward whenever we can and wherever there is the greatest need. We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. PetConnect Rescue arranges and pays for medical services ranging from routine treatments, such as vaccinations and blood tests, to treating serious medical conditions such as broken bones. All PetConnect Rescue animals are spayed or neutered at an appropriate age to help decrease the terrible problem of pet overpopulation. Adopters of puppies and kittens are required to have the animals altered at the appropriate age as well. The rescues that come into our care are primarily placed in foster homes, although some are boarded with reputable kennels or at vet practices. Our foster volunteers provide loving care and socialization for these animals while they await their forever homes. Thanks to donation drives, we are able to pass on supplies to our foster families such as crates, food, collars, toys, bedding etc

Adoption Process

1. To be eligible to adopt one of PetConnect Rescue’s animals, you will need to be at least 21 years old. 2. If you would like to learn more about one of our rescue animals, please fill out our short online application. Just click on the link to the appropriate form (dog or cat) to access the application. Completing the online application is the first step and will provide us with the initial information we need but does not obligate you in any way. 3. An adoption coordinator will contact you, or you may call or email the coordinator listed for more information. Please understand that we are a predominantly volunteer-based organization; therefore, a PCR team member will contact you as soon as possible. 4. If applicable, we’ll call your veterinarian to ensure that your current/previous pets have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and well cared for. For renters, we’ll check with your landlord to verify applicable pet policies, and if you are adopting a dog – whether there are any size or breed restrictions. 5. Once you have spoken to an adoption coordinator about the pet you are interested in, and if you would like to continue with the adoption process, arrangements will be made for you to meet the pet at his or her foster home. 6. After you have met the dog or cat of your choice, your home visit will be scheduled. The purpose of the home visit is to ensure that the rescue animal will be living in a safe environment, as well as to support the adoption process.PetConnect reviews applications in the order in which they are received. We focus on matching the right animal to the right family to ensure successful adoptions. Our goal is to place these wonderful pets into homes where they will be safe and loved forever. We require adopters to meet our adoptable pets in person, and therefore give preference to applicants in the metro Washington, DC area, but will consider out of area adopters on a case by case basis.
