Many of you may already know Audrey from her time as manager of Mid Hudson Animal Aid in Beacon, NY.  With more than 15 years of management experience Audrey brings a wealth of knowledge and skills to the Pets Alive team.

As Shelter Manager at MHAA Audrey was instrumental in building a strong team of caretakers, volunteers and supporters. She excels at streamlining processes to improve efficiency, promote positivity and building morale. She has a passion for animal welfare and follows the No Kill philosophy.

Over the past few years Pets Alive has often partnered with Mid Hudson Animal Aid in hoarding cases across the Tri County area. We have seen first hand her skills, compassion and her organized approach even in the face of chaos.

    I’m very glad there is a new director.
    I am very supportive of animal rescue and protection.
    I have had VERY BAD experiences as have many other good people
    with the Elmsford animal shelter, both before and after it was re-vitalized by Pets Alive.

    I would be happy to share my experiences and history with someone in hopes of improving the situation. I have had a minor role in pet rescue (teacher in yonkers, ny) and am a devoted pet owner. My friend and I have both been rejected from adopting a dog at the elmsford animal shelter/pets alive and have turned to breeders (how sad) to get a dog. Both of us provide excellent homes for our dogs.
