THE STORY:

Pets Alive, Inc. wrote -

 

The 772 animals we saved in 2015 racked up medical expenses in excess of $150,000.  We desperately need to replenish our Emergency Medical Fund so the next time we receive a phonecall regarding a hoarding or abuse situation, we can immediately spring into action!

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.

In 2015, we saved 772 cats, dogs and farm animals from life-threatening circumstances, and we found forever homes for 667 animals. It was through private donations from generous people and organizations that we were able to achieve this accomplishment.

We accept animals from varying situations. Whether it’s an animal we are saving from euthanasia at a high kill shelter, a hoarding situation, or an owner surrendering a pet, we will provide love, medical, nutrition and housing to animals from various situations with various needs. We often take in strays or animals from shelters that face overcrowding so they do not have to resort to killing. Animals that come within our care continued their lives at our sanctuary until they are adopted. For some, it may take years due to behavioral challenges, however, through our unique training and adoptability programs, we continue to work with these animals to help them overcome these challenges.

What's the contest about?

Michelson Found Animals, the sponsor of this contest, will donate over $115,000 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!


How can you help?

We need our incredible supporters to become fundraisers! By setting up a fundraiser for our cause and reaching out to your network of supporters, imagine the impact you can have.

How would we use the money raised by this challenge? No matter how big or small your donation, it helps Pets Alive save animals.  For example:

10 dollars buys a bag of cat or dog food

25 dollars buys one large canister of powdered kitten milk for orphaned kittens

50 dollars pays for one spay/neuter

1000 dollars provides medical care for an animal needing lifesaving surgery

Thank you in advance for your support!
