The price of dog overpopulation caused by irresponsible backyard breeders & puppymillers is paid in blood by the dogs that lose their lives. Please help stem the tide --adopt a rescue or shelter dog, report puppymillers & call your senators, representatives,mayor,etc about new laws to prevent this ultimate cruelty.

Columbus Dog Connection
Rescue Organizations
Flora Villa Drive
Columbus, OH 43085
Our Mission To rescue abandoned dogs, promote all rescues and shelters in Ohio and be in dogged pursuit of saving every adoptable dog until we don’t euthanize for lack of space. Columbus Dog Connection is a 501c3, limited admission dog rescue organization. We formed in 1998. We are a network of dog enthusiasts who rescue all breeds of dogs and puppies. Our pooches are rescued from abandonment/abuse situations and we assist shelters/humane societies by taking dogs from death row. Every dog that leaves our care is spayed/neutered, including 8 week old pups. We believe that allowing a pup to leave our care not spayed/neutered would perpetuate the problem we work so hard to overcome every day.
