Operation Pets Alive!

Fill Up the Sleigh to Help Our Homeless Pets!
And your gift will be matched by Woodlands Heating & Air Conditioning

How does Santa provide for the almost 400 homeless pets under OPA’s care? He calls in the troops ~ any Holiday Elves out there willing to help?

One super generous Holiday Elf has signed up again this year as our Sponsor and is MATCHING every gift you provide up to $5000!  Thank you, Woodlands Heating & Air Conditioning for your continued support of our life-saving mission. 

From now through December 31, you can visit them at  and support their Matching Gift Event benefitting the pets of Operation Pets Alive!

Or, you can just click the button below, to select a gift (or gifts) of your choice for our OPA pets. Your gifts will be matched, so two pets benefit from every one gift you select. Cash gifts are also welcome at any of our weekly adoption events as well as at the Holiday Woodlands Mall adoption tents. 

Please join us in Filling Up The Sleigh! 


OPA and The Woodlands Mall Add ‘Joy to Your World’ this Holiday Season!

Believe in a No Kill Community by adding ‘Joy to Your World’ this holiday season ~ Adopt! For the fourth year in a row, The Woodlands Mall has invited Operation Pets Alive to host Holiday Pet Adoption Events, AND to provide Gift-Wrapping Services to its customers. It all kicks off this weekend, Black Friday, and runs through Christmas Eve (select days).

OPA volunteers will be at The Woodlands Mall every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, through Christmas Eve, with adoptable dogs and cats, puppies and kittens. Look for us and our adoptable pets on the Plaza outside Barnes and Noble from noon-7pm. Shop from our cornucopia of volunteer hand-crafted pet items and home accessories while there!

When you are done with your mall shopping, let OPA Volunteers  ‘Wrap Your Holiday Gifts Up’! Look for our OPA Gift Wrapping Station beginning November 24th through Christmas Eve (select days) upstairs, near the Food Court (across from Kay Jewelers) at The Woodlands Mall. A minimum donation is asked for each gift expertly wrapped. Save time while helping to save precious lives!

All proceeds from our gift-wrapping services, and our hand-crafted items available for purchase, go immediately to help the homeless dogs and cats of Montgomery County!

Check our Facebook Calendar of Events for Gift-Wrapping days/hours, and minimum suggested donation for services: 189031644993828

If you’d like to give back this year, by giving just a little of your time, we sure could use your help! Volunteer gift wrappers, customer service, and general help is needed to fill 2-3 hour shifts. Sign up with a friend, or two or three! Just visit our OPA Volunteer Sign Up Genius page here to pick your shift(s):

If you would like to sign up as a Shift Coordinator for our Gift-Wrapping Station, have a group you would like to bring, have questions or need help, Please email Arlynn at:

For a $9.95 donation, you will receive a digital emailed photo of your pet with Santa within minutes, to print or post to social media. The more participants we have, the more donations we receive through the Petco Foundation, and the more lives we are able to save this holiday season and beyond!
Share your images across social media with the hashtag #SantaPawsforaCause to show your support for OPA and the Petco Foundation. Share our event to help us spread the word to all of the animal lovers in your life! The events are open to the public, but Petco requires all animals to be leashed to participate.
