When you find an animal that may be someone’s pet, please be empathetic and act the way you would want someone to if they found your lost pet.
Please do not assume that the owners are neglectful or mean. It might not be their fault the animal got lost. Do not decide that they are not worth looking for, or that the pet is better off without them. The animal you found may belong to a family that is heartbroken over the loss of their beloved pet. Please do not decide to just keep the pet yourself or rehome it without looking for the original owners.
Take the animal to the local veterinary clinic
The vet should be able to scan the pet for a microchip, if there is one, for FREE
Some local places to post/call about lost & found animals:
Kreacher Konnections is organizing and getting ready for puppy and kitten season, and we are in need of a couple of items you might have to spare.
Non-clumping cat litter
Paper towels (couponers have any extra?)
Cleaner such as Lysol or Mr. Clean (couponers have any extra?)
Dawn dish soap (original only – for washing fleas of very young kittens/puppies or nursing mothers)
Advantage flea preventative (for very young kittens/puppies)
Puppy or kitten dry food
Cat or Dog toys
You can drop items off at Doogies in Davison (they will hold them for us), or bring items to any showing (see Events). If there is not an event near you, please email kreacherkonnections.org to set up a time and place to meet with us. Thank you so much! We greatly appreciate all of our volunteers and donors!
We received a call the evening of March 16th, 2014 from the local police who had found a dog tied to a fence so tight that she could not even sit down. The officer had fed her a whole bag of beef jerky, but could not get near her as she lashed out in fear. I fed her a whole can of wet food and some more treats, but each time I got the leash near her or moved too close she would angrily charge. The officers had no luck distracting her so I could untie her from the fence. So I borrowed a catch pole from PAWS (thank you very much) and came back with my husband. As soon as we got her loose from the fence and into the car her demeanor changed. She is still scared, but is resting in a blanket filled crate instead of the 2° weather. Hopefully this is the start of a much better life for her!
You can now fill out our forms from your mobile device! We updated all 3 of our forms. It is now even easier to apply to adopt, foster or surrender kreachers to KK!
Thank you to Eric of Digital Denizens for all his neverending patience and for this website. Without him, this website would not exist. Without the website we couldn’t be so organized and so green. Not only are we saving animals, we are conserving environmental resources and saving the world! Thank you for helping us to continue to make it easier for people to help us help the animals!
Dezi had a recheck at the vet and he is doing much better! He is cleared to have surgery to be neutered next week. When we first got Dezi he had a terrible skin infection from an out of control flea allergy. He had been terribly neglected. His skin was crawling with fleas and was so infected it looked terrible. Most of his hair had fallen out. His nails were incredibly long!
After twice weekly medicated baths and antibiotics Dezi started to look and feel much better.
Poor Dezi is a small terrier mix who came to us terribly neglected! A neighbor asked Dezi’s owners what was wrong with him, and was told they did not care what happened to him, and gladly surrendered him. He had barely any hair left, was crawling with parasites, had secondary infections from being allergic to fleas, and infections in both ears. He was still in good spirits though, wagging his tail at everyone.
He is on antibiotics for a couple more weeks before he is expected to be well enough to be neutered, and then we can start looking for his forever home. We all would like to say thank you to anyone who helped us care for him. Whether it was donations, sharing his pictures, or just telling a friend about Kreacher Konnections and the work we are doing, it is all appreciated!
Dezi was released to us by his owners who openly admitted they did not love him, so they didn’t take care of him. He was VERY neglected! Initially, we were worried that he would require long, expensive treatment for mange. Fortunately, it was not mange and was not contagious. He will require many medicated baths, sessions of nail clippings,and lots of TLC before he can find his forever home. Even though he was neglected so badly, he is a sweet, loving, and grateful boy and DEFINITELY worth saving!
While this is good news, Molly was also taken to the vet to have her seizures assessed. We got the devastating news that a cyst on Molly’s leg is cancerous. She must have surgery Tuesday February 4 to remove the growth and send a sample to be tested. Molly is such a happy and loving dog, I know she will be a trooper throughout this process.
We are a non-profit organization and we depend on donations from generous animals lovers. If you would like to donate to help pay for either Molly or Dezi’s care and recovery, please use the PayPal button on Kreacher Konnections Facebook or http://kreacherkonnections.org/how-to-help/ or mail donations to PO Box 83 Flint, MI 48501. Thank you. Please share so that Molly and Dezi can get the help they need.
