Operation Pets Alive!

About Operation Pets Alive!

Operation Pets Alive! offers dog and cat adoptions to veterans in the greater Houston metro area through its partnership with Pets for Patriots. The rescue holds adoption events at two locations, Petco in The Woodlands and Petsmart in Shenandoah.  Adoption dates and times are listed on their website.

The all-volunteer, foster-based organization is dedicated to providing life-saving programs to its community that raise awareness, reduce the number of dogs and cats that enter shelters, and increase the number of adoptable animals who leave shelters alive. The animals are in foster care for a minimum of two weeks before becoming eligible for adoption so that the foster can assess behavior to better match pet and person. In addition, Operation Pets Alive! maintains a low-cost spay/neuter program.

Operation Pets Alive! welcomes monetary and in-kind donations, as well as a variety of pet food and basic supplies; see their complete wish list for details. For a more hands on experience, become one of their valued volunteers or pet fosters.
