Some unique volunteer opportunities for you to consider...we need your help.
More importantly...THEY need your help!

Improving Adoptability Program:

One of Pets Alive's most important goals is to and "forever homes" for all of our animals. The dogs that are in our care come in all shapes, sizes, colors and most importantly, personalies.

Our Improving Adoptability program is aimed at helping those dogs whose current behaviors reduce their chances of becoming a member of a new family.

The core teaching of this program is simple: Allow the dog to learn how to control his environment by making better choices. For more on this method of training, please refer to internatonal trainer Grisha Stewart at http://grishastewart.com

For our dogs that translates into ALWAYS humane treatment. Members of this special group of volunteers learn and use the basic principles of behavior modification to help shape the responses of those dogs that are the most difficult to adopt.

As in any relatonship, there are at least three components: the dog, the environment and a human! The people in this very special group come to understand that they are an important part in a dog's life and future.

And there's more! For those individuals who are dedicated and demonstrate an ability to work with these great dogs, there is a brand new opportunity: An invitation to become a member of our elite group - the "Improving Adoptability Crew" team members!

So what do you think? Want to change the life of a dog for the better? Please join our Improving Adoptability program. Enroll in our new BASICS lessons. To get more involved or become a part of this team, no experience is necessary! Email robin@petsalive.com for more information.

TNR Program:

TNR stands for TRAP, NEUTER, RETURN.
It is what our volunteer team of trappers do every week for the City of Middletown (we are always willing to help with advice for anyone out of our trapping area). We would love to expand this program, and help other communities, but we are unable to because of the lack of reliable volunteers to help. Can you give us a few hours a week?

There are many jobs that you can do for the feral cat TNR program.

  • You can help trap the cats.
  • You can help transport the cats or release the cats.
  • You can help care for the cats while here in our TNR room recovering from medical care and altering (we alter every cat, but we also help them all with any injuries or medical care they need before we release them).
  • You can help do TNR laundry (bring it home, wash it, bring it back)
  • You can help by handing out flyers in the areas we are about to trap (so people with outdoor cats will keep them in those days).
MOST of these jobs can be done before or AFTER your regular job. We usually trap at night. The cat care can be done early in the morning or after you get off work.

Please consider helping us help the community. Many people have no idea how many feral cats are out there. There are literally HUNDREDS. We are backed up with requests to trap and help. More than a dozen locations are waiting for us, and we are limited ONLY because of our need for more volunteers for this program. We will teach you EVERYTHING you need to know.

Please consider helping us to help them - and to help your neighbors!
