Operation Pets Alive!


Wooftrax Shoe Drive to Help both Families and Pets in Need.

Would you ever think that your old shoes could make a difference in the lives of homeless pets in our community? Well they can and here's how. Operation Pets Alive! is participating in a fundraiser where there is nothing to buy or sell. All we need is your support and your old shoes.

We are looking for community members to help support us by agreeing to collect 25 pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes through April 30. Here's how you do it: Start in your family's closets and gather pairs of shoes that you've outgrown, are out of style or out of season. If you have 25 pairs, great! If not, please ask your neighbors and/or co-workers to do the same. These shoes will help support our program as well as individuals in developing nations.

Can we count on you? Please say YES, I'LL HELP! If you can't collect 25, then try for 15, 10 or 5. Every pair helps. You can drop off your collected shoes at any one our Petco/Kuykendahl weekend Adoption Events, check our FB Calendar for hours here:

For more information, flyers and support materials for your Shoe-Collection Drive, or to make arrangements for additional shoe drop offs, contact:

OPA Impacts Lives of over 2,600 Homeless Pets in 2016


Because of your support, Operation Pets Alive bettered the lives for over 2,600 homeless pets in 2016. Take a look at our breakdowns. OPA rescued a total of 1,765 dogs and 899 cats from our County Shelters and our Community for a total of 2,664 pets. During 2016 OPA transferred 1,062 dogs and 236 cats to partnering shelters and rescues in the Northeast and in Colorado via our ‘Pups On Trucks’ and ‘Flight For Life’  Programs ~ areas of the country where there is a greater demand for adoptable pets and a 99.9% save rate amongst those transferred. OPA had a great year for local adoptions with 548 dogs and 459 cats finding forever homes within our Community!

An awesome job by volunteers, fosters, partners and our supporters! Donations make the difference in how many lives we can save, and OPA is so grateful to all those who gave to better the lives of homeless dogs and cats in our Community.
