  12. 12. Recycling—Go Green and Save Homeless Pets The Pet Connection is pleased to announce that we have expanded our recy- cling program! Recycling is an extremely important reality of the world we live in. We must save our planet!!! Why not raise money to save homeless cats and dogs while we’re at it! Instead of throwing your cans away or taking them to the recycling center, please bring them by The Pet Connection! Cans can be dropped off anytime (open or closed hours) at our facility located at 5918 Broadmoor in Mission KS. Our recycling bin is located on the south-east side of the building next to the obedience center entrance. We are also proud to announce recycling abilities for printer & toner car- tridges and old cell phones! Recycling boxes are located in our main lobby “The Bratcher Café” and can be accessed any time during open hours. Sim- ply come in and place your product in the correct box. Want to do a fund raiser for The Pet Connection? Collect aluminum cans, ink cartridges, or cell phones from your schools, your neighborhoods, your clubs and bring them in! You’ll save the planet and you’ll save the lives of homeless pets all at the same time.
