OPA's Flight For Life and Pups on Trucks!
Operation Pets Alive organizes "rescue flights" and ground transports, for "at risk" homeless dogs in Montgomery County. These flights would not be possible without our partnerships with the receiving shelters in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Colorado and our transporters, Cloud Nine Rescue of Pennsylvania and P.E.T.S. LLC. All are great organizations working hard to help communities become no-kill communities. Volunteer opportunities include helping with getting animals vetted for health certificates, photography, checking temperament, dog washing and helping with transport the morning of the flight.

Trap, Neuter, Return
Feral cats taken to a shelter are typically killed. With TNR feral cats are trapped, sterilized, vaccinated then returned to their colonies or placed for adoption if necessary. A feral cat’s cropped left ear signifies it has been altered and vaccinated. With proper monitoring, feral cats can live long, happy lives. Volunteer opportunities include fostering overnight and then transporting to and from the spay/neuter clinic. Read More
Homeless pets belong in homes not shelters! Cats and dogs in OPA!’s care are made available for adoption through adoption events, our website, and other connections. Volunteer opportunities include helping at the event by walking dogs, making sure the dogs and cats have water and helping people with the adoption process. Read More
All of the animals in OPA's adoption program live in foster homes! This is an extremely important, absolutely life-saving function. OPA Fosters must sign a contract, agree to care for the animal, take it to scheduled vet appointments, take it to adoption events, assist with developing "good manners", assist by providing information for bios, attend photo sessions, and last but not least, turn loose when the animal finds a great new family! We realize that fostering is a gracious and time-consuming effort on behalf of the homeless, and we will attempt to provide the services you deserve to made it as easy as possible for you to help!
