Thank you!

Daryl was treated for severe injuries after being hit by a car, and then got adopted

THANK YOU! The 48 stray dogs from Orange and Sullivan Counties we helped in 2018 say THANK YOU. The 219 stray cats rescued from our local streets say THANK YOU. The 159 community cats who were spayed, neutered and vaccinated in 2018 because of our local Trap-Neuter-Return Program say THANK YOU. The 18 dogs who were rushed to safety at Pets Alive as Hurricane Florence hit the Carolinas say THANK YOU. Kalamazoo, a pot-bellied pig found roaming the streets of the Bronx and now up for adoption at Pets Alive, says THANK YOU. The 200 dogs pulled from danger at kill facilities say THANK YOU. The 11 calves who found safety and a new lease on life say THANK YOU.

Alien recovered and got adopted

Alien, who received lifesaving medical treatment after being poisoned, says THANK YOU. Fiona says THANK YOU for making it possible for her to receive lifesaving emergency surgery. The Pets Alive staff and board of directors say THANK YOU because without your continued support, none of these precious souls would be here to say THANK YOU.

Millie with her adoptive family after 6 years at Pets Alive

To all our adopters, THANK YOU for giving the older, shyer, outgoing, younger, not so well-behaved, wallflower, in your face, oversized and undersized pets a second chance. THANK YOU for believing that each and every one of them is perfect in their own way.

Volunteers walk the dogs

THANK YOU to our volunteers for giving of themselves selflessly and tirelessly, and for loving our animals unconditionally. THANK YOU to our volunteers who come in all kinds of weather to walk and train our dogs. THANK YOU to our volunteers who come in every week and clean and scoop litter boxes. THANK YOU to our volunteers who go out at night every week to humanely trap community cats so they can be altered, vaccinated and returned to their colonies. THANK YOU to all our volunteers who take our animals to adoption events, foster bottle babies, greet visitors, take pictures, run special events, do laundry and work behind the scenes.

Donations arriving after Hurricane Florence dogs arrive

To our supporters: THANK YOU for always hearing our pleas for help and jumping into action dropping off needed supplies of bleach, dog and cat food, KMR and linens. THANK YOU for always hearing our pleas for monetary donations. Without your support, we wouldn’t have been able to afford to help Gladys, Pearl, Fiona, Alien, Jack, Jill, and Daryl, all emergency medical cases. It is because of you, our supporters, that Pets Alive will be there when the call comes in to save the animals that need us most. We can only cover the front lines because we know you have our backs. THANK YOU!

On behalf of the entire Pets Alive staff and board of directors, I want to wish each and every one of you a happy and healthy New Year. Stay warm. Stay safe. Hug your pets tight. THANK YOU for being part of the Pets Alive family.

For the animals,

Becky Tegze
Executive Director

    Hi, Our rescue Tex (Ralph) that we adopted 8-17 just turned 2 and is doing fine although he lost his buddy Chance last May. I was wondering if you are associated with “Walks for a dog”. I’ve seen posts from people about it and would like to put Pets Alive Middletown as a recipient but I only see a reference to Pets Alive Westchester on the app. Let me know if there is some way for our walks to benefit your work. Thanks, George

      George, I’m so glad to hear Ralph is doing well – and I’m so very sorry to hear about Chance. It’s so hard when we loose our furry friends. Let me get back to you on Woof Trax! Thanks!
