Operation Pets Alive!

Your Support Impacts Lives!


WOW! #DonatingSavesLives For those of you that like numbers, take a look at how many dogs’ and cats’ lives OPA has been able to impact this year January through September in Montgomery County! 1,929 total dogs and cats rescued. Of the total 1,328 pups rescued by OPA, 757 of them have been transferred to partnering shelters and rescues in the Northeast and in Colorado via our #PupsOnTrucks and #FlightForLife programs ~ areas of the country where there is a greater demand for adoptable pets and a 99.9% save rate among those transferred. 357 OPA dogs and puppies have been adopted locally. Of the 601 cats rescued by OPA, 226 have been transferred to Colorado and Austin Pets Alive, via our Flight for Life and Cat Taxi programs. 292 cats and kittens have been adopted locally.

An awesome job by volunteers, fosters, partners and our supporters. Donations make the difference in how many lives we can save. Help us increase these numbers through the end of the year by giving today:

Join us Wednesday, October 26, for a free-admission feature presentation of Nathan Winograd’s film ‘Redemption’, hosted by Maverick Pets Alive! and the Maverick Film Club at Lone Star College-Montgomery. 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.

“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

The film begins at 1 pm and is an hour long. There is a 75 person capacity in theatre, please get there early to ensure a seat. Be aware that this film may not be appropriate for small children. In addition, 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.
