NOVA Pets Alive is a relatively new animal rescue that's saving some of the most at-risk pets in our area and state (in fact, we rescue directly from shelters' euthanasia lists and out of their isolation wards). The majority of our cats and dogs were at risk in shelters due to easily treatable medical needs. The shelters we partner with don't have funding for extra medical expenses, and an added complication is that pets have a hard time recovering from any illness in shelter environments due to stress; these same pets bounce back quickly once we place them in loving foster homes. The most common ailments we treat are drug-resistant upper respiratory infections, eye infections, ringworm and pets who need surgery due to injury or infection. We also take in pets who are feral/scared in shelters or are terminally ill but not yet suffering (hospice cases, so they can have a few more pain-free days in a loving home).
We spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinate and get a medical checkup for every pet in our care. Though our adoption fees are similar to those of other area rescues, the 'everyday' expenses for each animal are often more than our adoption fees bring back in; this means that we MUST fundraise all of the money for lifesaving medical care: things like antibiotics, eye ointments, antifungals and surgeries.
*Our goal is to raise enough funding that we never have to say no to a pet whose only other option is shelter euthanasia.*
We're building a fundraising committee which will work together, mostly from home but occasionally meeting in person, to research venues, plan fundraisers and market them to potential supporters and attendees. This is a fun way to help out and to get to know some like-minded people who want to make a difference for animals. We need you on our team!
