Kreacher Konnections has been working on getting a logo created that perfectly represents our organization and mission. Our brilliant director pitched the idea she had for a logo to a class of graphic designers at Baker College of Owosso. A wonderful artist named Tiffany Plashek brought our ideas to life. If you need any graphic design created, look her up, she is amazing!
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.

All dogs, regardless of whether they’re purebred, a mixed breed, or even what many of us would call a “mutt,” have their own personalities, whether loving, mischievous, or independent. Sure, you can buy a purebred puppy from a breeder or a pet store, but if you have never considered a rescue dog, you’re missing out on an amazing opportunity to learn just how much these dogs can enrich your life.
Sometimes adding a rescue dog to your family brings about many mysteries; regardless, all dogs need and deserve a loving family to care for them. If you’re wondering why we claim rescue dogs are immeasurably more interesting than those you purchase from a breeder or inherit from a friend or family member, here are our thoughts:
Rescue dogs have endless gratitude. All a dog needs to be happy is food, a comfortable place to sleep, and a little TLC and loving from you. Your pet will feel as if he/she is living a life of luxury when compared to a shelter!
Like some women, your pet may not reveal his or her age. That’s the thing with pets you adopt from an animal rescue organization or shelter – you never know what you’re getting! One of the mysteries we spoke about earlier, you may never guess your pet’s age.
Rescuing a dog fills your heart with joy. It’s a wonderful feeling knowing you are giving a dog a second chance at life, especially when the love you get in return demonstrates your dog’s appreciation.
Rescue dogs are “cool.” Where else could you get a dog with street smarts, one who’s been there and done that? These dogs have a richness of experience you just don’t get with pets adopted elsewhere.
They can help your friends and family strike up a conversation. In many cases, you may not have a clue about the breed of your dog, especially if it is a mixed breed. Everyone who comes to your home will have an opinion, especially those who consider themselves “dog experts.” The funny thing is, you’ll get more theories than could possibly exist in your dog’s heritage!
You get to pick your pet’s birthday. Since you don’t know when your dog was actually born, you get to choose when to celebrate Fido’s birthday – but don’t worry, he won’t mind.
Doesn’t that dog look like Fido? That’s a question many owners of rescue dogs ask many times – in fact, there may be many occasions on which you see a dog that slightly resembles yours, and you find yourself wondering “Could it possibly be . . . ?” Who knows how many siblings your pet really has?
Why not make the choice to get a dog that may not have another chance at life, and that will peak your interest and curiosity – not to mention love you unconditionally?
Abby and her 4 siblings were born in a barn, but are perfectly well mannered kittens. These kittens are lucky to be alive, the previous kittens that were born in that barn were eaten by coyotes so Kreacher Konnections was contacted by the home owner to save them before they got out and found trouble.
12 weeks old, playful and cuddly. These kittens would make a wonderful addition to your family. Please consider bringing her home to celebrate the holidays with you.
