Operation Pets Alive!

Faculty, Staff and Students at Lone Star College-Montgomery Rally for OPA!

We love our Community Supporters that rally to the cause of helping homeless pets in Montgomery County! For the fourth year in a row, the faculty, staff and students of Lone Star College-Montgomery are raising funds to cover the cost of an Operation Pets Alive Flight for Life. Students with Maverick Pets Alive! kicked off the fundraiser with a month-long Food Drive and a Valentines Shop on Campus, Feb  9-10 and Feb 13-14. All donations received, and proceeds from the sale of flowers, chocolates, cards and pet items will go towards the fundraiser. The food drive will continue on campus through the end of February. Last year alone, over 5,000 lbs of dog and cat food and supplies were collected! Help the faculty, staff and students of Lone Star College-Montgomery meet their fundraising goal by giving what you can today!

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.
