THE STORY:

Pets Alive, Inc. wrote -

451 cats, 314 dogs, 5 horses, a goat and a pig.         In 2015 alone, Pets Alive saved an astounding 772 companion animals from various life-threatening situations, incurring medical expenses in excess of $150,000! We desperately need to replenish our depleted Medical Fund to enable us to help more animals in need!

Who are we?

Pets Alive is one of the oldest and largest no kill animal rescue and advocacy organizations in the United States, located on 80 acres in Middletown, NY. We are a nonprofit 501c3 organization with a mission to improve the lives of dogs, cats and farm animals in need by any means possible, including rescue, adoption, advocacy, collaboration, intervention and education. It is through private donations from generous people and organizations that we are able to further our mission.

We welcome companion animals from varying circumstances, whether it’s a dog or cat we are saving from euthanasia due to overcrowding at a high kill shelter, a hoarding or neglect situation, or an owner surrendering a pet. Once in our care, we provide love, medical care, food, shelter and rehabilitation until each animal is adopted.  For some, it may take years due to behavioral challenges, however, through our unique training and adoptability programs, we have a very high success rate!

About the contest - and a maching gift

Michelson Found Animals, the sponsor of this contest, will donate over $150,000 to animal welfare organizations dedicated to decreasing shelter pet euthanasia. The organization that raises the most will get a $50,000 donation to their cause. That could be Pets Alive - with your help!

And announced on July 18, Sidewalk Angels Foundation, a New York-based, not-for-profit organization founded in 2003 by Grammy Award Winning Artist Rob Thomas and his wife Marisol Thomas, have pledged up to $25,000 to Pets Alive as part of the Challenge! Sidewalk Angels Foundation will match dollar for dollar up to $25,000, for every donation made here online as part of the Pets Alive’s Challenge website from this point forward. Sidewalk Angels Foundation is dedicated to providing critically needed funds and support to grassroots groups across the country. It is the primary supporter and sponsor of a number of no kill animal shelters and animal rescues, reflecting the passion of its co-founders to fight for the rights and fair treatment of those with no voice. Since its inception the foundation has raised over $3 million dollars and helped many organizations in need.
