Our Impact

2020 Impact Report

2020 has truly been one like no other— in so many ways! Like you, Pets Alive has faced ups and downs and unforeseen challenges. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we had a temporary shut-down, reopened and faced a leadership change.

In spite of these difficulties, we are proud of our accomplishments during 2020 and so incredibly grateful to our community of supporters. Pets Alive could not do the lifesaving work that we do without YOU. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!

The Pets Alive Mission:
To provide the compassionate solution to end the unnecessary euthanasia of cats and dogs by offering affordable, high-quality spay/neuter surgeries.

The Pets Alive Vision:
To improve the health and well-being of cats and dogs by partnering with the animal welfare community to provide life-saving programs and compassionate solutions to pet overpopulation.

Since 2005, Pets Alive has reduced the euthanasia rate in our area by 86%.  Simply put, spay/neuter saves lives.


Thank you to every member of our team that helps make all of this possible. We are so grateful for the hard work and dedication from every member of our team during such an uncertain year.
