On the Cover: Meet Smalls. This pup was on his way to a life of abuse and neglect until a stranger spoke up for his rights. Smalls and his two siblings made their way from a rural, high-kill shelter to PetConnect Rescue, where he fell into the arms of his new mom, Vanessa. Vanessa was looking for a rescue pup to help ease the pain of losing her son who was killed in action while serving our country. Smalls was there to keep her warm and lick away her tears. Yes, PetConnect Rescue saves animals. But often, we find it’s the animals who are doing the saving. Read more stories like this inside our 16-month Calendar!
