Angel is another one of my sweet sanctuary kitties. I saved her from the shelter years ago when most did not make it. She was a feral orphan and she is still pretty much feral to everyone but me. Most people have never even seen her she hides when anyone comes over.

She was recently diagnosed with a disorder that effects her feet. She has fluid in the pads of her feet. This is a first for me. Trying different meds and will hopefully research to find some kind of a solution to provide some normalcy.

I spend a lot of time researching. ~ Patti Owensby

Her face might be white but her heart is pure gold.

There’s a lot to be said about senior doggies.

I pulled this sweet old lady who unfortunately lost her momma. She was loved and well cared for, as she will spend the rest of her days. She loves pets and to lean into her person, long naps and playing with her ball. Miss Molly will be hanging out here with us and my pack of crazies until her transport.

We need more people willing to open their homes and their hearts to fur kids like these who just need some love and belly rubs until they head out on their next journey.

We are always looking for qualified fosters. Please contact us if you would like more information on fostering or how to help us continue to help them.

They need you...

We need you.....

And you never know, sometimes they show you how much you need them! ~ Courtney Prater

ALIVE has another transport in the books this year and our first one for March thanks to House Of Hope Animal Rescue Inc. another wonderful group helping us save lives.

Super excited to see these 14 dogs and puppies safe and in foster homes awaiting vetting till they are ready for their own furever homes.

This group includes 3 counties Wyoming, McDowell and Mercer counties.

Lots of different stories puppies from a stray momma who doesn’t trust people.

To assisting people who can’t keep their pets, owners pass away and divorces that happen.

We are so thankful for the volunteers, donors and rescues that make this complicated process happen without you there is no hope for them.

We hope to follow their journey with the rescue and share when they go on to their furever homes.

Rescues like this would not be possible without the foster families that step up and open their homes to the pups that so badly need them.

If you have the time, the space and the desire to be a hero for a pup like the ones pictured here, join us!

We are in desperate need of more foster homes so that we can continue to get these deserving dogs the second chance they deserve.

All supplies are provided, vetting is covered and you get all the puppy loving's you can handle!!

If you would like to help us continue to help the surrounding communities please donate, follow us, share, message us!

Organization Name:

ALIVE Animal Services Group

Organization Number:


A.L.I.V.E is a 501c3 non-profit corporation who has worked diligently with Mercer County Animal Shelter since 2011 to try and transform it into a life preserving shelter instead of one that is labeled “high kill." We are making this happen by working closely with the shelter and surrounding communities to provide resources such as fosters, transports and vetting. We are currently transporting more than 100 animals each month to safety from Mercer County Animal Shelter and surrounding communities. ALIVE provides van rental, gasoline, tolls, vetting expenses, and volunteer drivers.
