Operation Pets Alive!

A Mother’s love is forever selfless. Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 8th. Why not honor the giving Mom(s) in your life, by helping to save a precious life? Make a donation, and Operation Pets Alive will email you a printable card to present to Mom. Want to make her day extra special? A $200 donation will sponsor a pup on our next ‘Flight for Life’ scheduled for early Saturday morning, 5/7/16. Bring Mom out to meet her sponsored pup, before it boards to a happy forever in the Northeast! Pose for a family photo-op with your sponsored pup! Details of the ‘Flight for Life’ day will be sent with your card, and tax-deductible receipt.

Hundreds of animals are euthanized in local shelters each month. When you donate to Operation Pets Alive, it helps us to save more of these lives through our combined programs and initiatives. Honor your Mom, by supporting our mission!

Please join Operation Pets Alive, Wednesday May 4, at 2pm for a free admission feature presentation of Nathan Winograd’s film ‘Redemption’, hosted by Lone Star College-Montgomery, the Animal Rescue Club, and the Maverick Film Club. Shelter killing is the leading cause of death for healthy dogs and cats in the United States. It doesn’t have to be. Every year, millions of dogs and cats are euthanized in our country’s shelters. Inform yourself about the No-Kill revolution in America. It’s time to say #Yes2NoKill.

The film is an hour long and a discussion will follow.  There is a 75 person capacity in theatre, please get there early to ensure a seat. Please be aware that this film may not be appropriate for small children. Unaccompanied children are not allowed on the college campus.

Directions: Enter the campus via West Campus Drive, pass Sam Houston entrance, turn right into large parking area. Enter the Health Science Center (Building B). Follow signs.

Redemption is the story of animal sheltering, which was born of compassion and then lost its way. It is the story of the No Kill movement, which says we can and must stop the killing. It is about heroes and villains, betrayal and redemption. And it is about a social movement as noble and just as those that have come before. But most of all, it is a story about believing in the community and trusting in the power of compassion.” Nathan Winograd
