Quincy K-9 Connection is a 501c3 non-profit animal rescue group dedicated to rescuing and transporting stray, abandoned and unwanted animals in Illinois, Iowa and Missouri. We rely solely on volunteers and private donations to save these unwanted animals.

Within an average year we will transport 1200 to 1500 animals to licensed rescues. We also provide courtesy transport for other shelters needing to move animals to destinations along our route.

If you are interested in volunteering or making a donation, please contact Anne Heckle ( for information. Your Tax-Deductible donations are used for gas to transport dogs to rescue groups, vet care, collars, leashes, blankets, crates, etc.

Monetary donations and gas cards can also be sent to: Quincy K-9 Connection, 4526 Columbus Road, Quincy, IL 62305.
