At present we are providing the following programs:
SHELTER PROGRAM Our shelter is a no kill 24 hour drop off program under a contract with the Town of Wickenburg. The shelter began operations for the Wickenburg Police Department on July 1st, 2016. We currently only have the capacity to accept strays primarily through the police drop off.
If you find a lost or stray dog, please contact us to check on our current shelter space available or for us to assist with recommending other resources in order to locate the pets owners. It is our goal to serve the entire Wickenburg area and surrounding communities “when possible”.
FOSTER PROGRAM In order to provide more comfortable and supportive care for dogs awaiting adoption and to preserve room at the shelter we have a foster home program. Anyone wanting to become a foster home for our dogs please call 928-232-2611.
ADOPTION PROGRAM Every dog needs a home. It is our goal to be able to provide a forever home for every homeless dog in Wickenburg and the surrounding communities. If you are interested in adopting, please check out our dogs.
VOLUNTEER & COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS PROGRAM K9 Konnection is now offering Volunteer Hours to High School students in order to meet their educational requirements. K9 Konnection is also now offering Community Service hours on a case-by case basis for those imposed by the Courts to serve for Non-theft, Non-violent related offenses. For more information and to see if you qualify, please call 928-232-2611.
HEALTH AND WELLNESS PROGRAM It is our goal that no dog go hungry and is supported through healthy living. K9 Konnection currently operates a Food Bank which offers dog food assistance to assist those struggling financially and need temporary assistance providing their dogs with quality nutrition. This goal is made successful by many ongoing local donors and food fundraisers. If you or someone you know is in need, please stop by or call 928-232-2611 and one of our volunteers will be glad to assist you.
In the near future, K9 Konnection in conjunction with a local veterinarian, grants and donations, will be looking to expand this program to include medical support care for identified pets in jeopardy of loosing their home or life, as a result of financial inability to have proper medical care. These services would include general or specialized vet care for senior or special need dogs, spay/neuter, up-to-date vaccinations and transport assistance.
