What My Shelter Means to Me: Pets Alive Animal Sanctuary

February 22, 2012  

By Lauren Jones

The Pets Alive Animal Sanctuary in Middletown, N.Y., means to me that any animal that is fortunate enough to have entered the gate of Pets Alive will always have a home, no matter what his/her condition in life presents.

Many of the dogs and cats that come to Pets Alive are pulled from the euthanasia lists of other shelters. They may have made it to that list because they were deemed unadoptable due to behavior issues, medical conditions or even advanced age. When they arrive at Pets Alive, they will have a home where they will be loved and cared for by a dedicated staff and volunteers until they are hopefully adopted into a forever home or for as long as they will live. Each dog, cat, horse, pig, goat or whatever other animal comes along will have that same promise.

The mission of Pets Alive is to rescue, rehabilitate and find loving homes for all the sanctuary animals. Through Pets Alive’s Humane Education Department, the message of kindness to all animals is delivered throughout the community. It is the hope that by making the world a better place for animals and those that love them, the need for animal shelters or sanctuaries will cease. But while there is that need, Pets Alive will always be a no-kill sanctuary where animals will know the love and kindness they so deserve.
