BENEFITING: Pets Alive, Inc.



We are so proud to announce that our Cause of the Month for September is Pets Alive! We will be contributing 100% of the proceeds from our Pet Tags and anti-bullying Stick up for Love! postcards and stickers, as well as over 10% of all jewelry and gift sales during September to this truly wonderful no-kill animal shelter that does so much to protect animals and help find suitable and loving homes for all breeds of animals in desperate need of kindness and care. Please take a moment to read on and learn about our Cause of the Month.

Pets Alive
Pets Alive is a no-kill animal shelter, located in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains, about 1 1/2 hours from New York City. Their mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and place animals in need. Victims of neglect, abuse, and violence, many of them have special needs and have been rejected by other organizations. Animals at the sanctuary range from dogs and cats to farm animals, exotic birds, and many others. Many of the animals at Pets Alive are older, have special needs or require special care.Sara Whalen, who established Pets Alive, had been rescuing society's "throw aways" for over 35 years. She proved that it is worthwhile to save animals no matter what level of abuse they have suffered or what their special needs are. Sometimes all it takes is a bath and a little affection; but all too often it takes very intensive surgical intervention and long-term care. Sara passed away in 2007, but as she wished, the care of the animals at Pets Alive continues in Middletown. The kindness carries on and the people behind Pets Alive’s mission work tirelessly to rescue, rehabilitate and place animals in need.

Help Pets Alive Save 500 Lives in Three Months!
If Pets Alive can save 500 lives during the combined months of August, September and October, they can be in the running to win $100,000! The money will go a long way toward the purchase of a mobile low-cost spay/neuter van! They really need all of our help to save 500 lives, win the money, and offer low cost spay/neuter options to the community! How you ask? Simple! Just adopt your newest furry family member from either Pets Alive Middletown or Pets Alive Westchester locations during those months.

Meet the Critters!
The following links will bring you to some of the most wonderful animals you'll ever meet. Please take your time to browse through the photos, looking into their eyes and deciding if one of them is right for you. If you can't take another animal in right now, perhaps you would be willing to help Pets Alive by sponsoring one of these wonderful critters. The happy faces when we can unite that special someone with the perfect companion are what keep them going. That, and their love and dedication to these beautiful creatures. Thank you for caring and for choosing a shelter animal to be your next companion!

One Meaning is honored to be able to lend support to such a noble and compassionate cause. We have a long relationship with Pets Alive and we’ve started the chain of compassion for animals by sponsoring an animal in need on a monthly basis. If you’d like to sponsor a pet, your help is very welcome! Pets Alive is thankful for the support of the community in caring for the animals. Volunteers, adopters, and donations are appreciated and much needed. For more information on how you can help, visit them at or call (845) 386-9738. Sometimes they need help quickly, or just need specialized help. If you want to be on their volunteer "call to action" email list, please sign up here: Ways to Help

We’ve featured some of the highlights from their site here, but encourage you to visit Pets Alive directly to learn more. You might be inspired to foster or adopt a new family member! Thank you spreading the love with your support of this truly impressive organization. By caring and lending a hand out to help one another, love really can change the world! Don't forget that we are all connected and it is not cool to be cruel.
