Dog Kennel Transfurmation Match

YOU HELPED US REACH OUR GOAL to make needed repairs to the dog kennel building! Last month, thanks to many supporters, we raised an amazing $88,000 in the Saving Pets Challenge, just $12,000 short of our $100,000 goal. While the Challenge ended on May 31, an anonymous donor graciously came forth and pledged a $6,000 match if we raise another $6,000 to help us achieve our $100,000 goal. And you helped us do it!  THANK YOU so very much!

Campaign Details

Millie and Annie are two of the 70+ dogs currently living at Pets Alive, a no kill animal rescue organization in Middletown, NY. They are two of the nearly 1,000 cats, dogs and farm animals that will be saved in 2018.

2018 is a special year. Thanks to your support, we’re celebrating 30 years incorporated as an animal rescue organization, saving the lives of thousands of animals since inception. Providing quality care for the animals is of utmost importance to ensuring their good health – and that includes maintenance of the animals’ living quarters.

Thirty years of wear and tear have taken its toll on our 12,000 square-foot dog kennel building. The roof is in desperate need of replacement - it leaks, doesn't hold the heat well, and the roofing infrastructure is deteriorating. Additionally, the exterior portions of each of the dog runs are in dire need of repair with cracked concrete, broken doggie doors and broken fencing. You can be part of the Dog Kennel Transfurmation by helping us reach our  $100,000 fundraising goal to give the kennel building a major facelift!  

Last month, thanks to many individual supporters and two foundations (Sidewalk Angels Foundation matched $30,000 and The John & Christine Tortorella Family Foundation matched $10,000), we raised $83,000 in the Saving Pets Challenge plus we earned a a $5,000 grant from the Challenge sponsor, Michelson Found Animals Foundation, for our 5th place standing in the overall Challenge! Now, an anonymous and very generous donor came forth and is helping us to raise the final $12,000 needed to reach our goal of $100,000. THANKS TO YOU, we met our goal and will receive the entire $6,000 match - and we have met our goal of raising a little more than $100,000 for this project.  The Giving Grid is still open in the event you'd like to donate.  We have a lot of work to do on the kennel building and every dime will be used to help make repairs.

We thank you and so do the animals! Your support of this campaign is crucial to the Dog Kennel Transfurmation project and helping provide a safe and healthy environment for the animals as they await their forever home. For additional information about Pets Alive, check out our website at
