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.
