Pet Connection Needs Your Immediate Support!

This puppy and countless others like him have been saved thanks to the work done every day at Pet Connection Programs Inc., a nonprofit maternity and urgent care animal shelter in Marilla. Every year, hundreds of dogs, cats, kittens, puppies and other animals are nursed to health and adopted to a loving home thanks to this shelter.

How can you help? Please show your holiday spirit by purchasing tickets to the shelter’s Holiday Dinner Dance & Auction from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. Saturday, December 4 at the Hearthstone Manor in Depew. In addition to plenty of food and a huge auction featuring more than 100 prizes, guests will be entertained by Jack Civiletto & The Pyramid Band. One lucky guest will also win a door prize featuring four one-day Disney hopper passes valued at $544!

Pet Connection Announces Holiday Season Events

Pet Connection Programs Inc. is counting on support from the generous residents of Western New York to make this a happy holiday season. Volunteers from the nonprofit maternity and special care animal shelter located in Marilla will be at several locations throughout Erie County in an effort to raise funds for the care of dozens of dogs and cats in need of loving homes.

Activities kick off on Black Friday as volunteers from the shelter will be selling their ever-popular pet totes filled with food, treats and toys at the Eastern Hills Mall, near Dave & Buster’s. The volunteers will return to the mall on three Saturday: November 27, December 11 and December 18. Pups from the shelter will also be there to greet you!
