This organization is absolutely corrupt. They are run by Pets Alive Inc. and this particular facility is closed due to the board incompetence and misuse of funds. Money donated to the Westchester Shelter has been funneled to the middletown NY location. And now they are only keeping this EIN active to continue to steal money from the Westchester community despite providing it with no services. The Westchester Attorney General's office is currently looking into the potential wrong doings of Pets Alive Inc. DO NOT DONATE

Strong volunteer base offering senior care for legacy dogs/cats who have spent nearly their entire lives there. Struggling to stay alive and functioning, the staff is equally loyal to the cause.

My experience with Pets Alive West has been nothing less than heartbreaking. This organization has a moral responsibility to ensure that dangerous dogs are not fostered or put up for adoption in unsecure environments. However, in the interest of expedition, they allowed an innocent domestic animal to be blinded for life. I would strongly advise not donating to this charity and selecting an alternative non-profit that takes animal welfare seriously. I will be doing the same. http://tinyurl.com/Safety4PippiPetition

previously donated, but after many phone calls and emails the charity refused to participate in my corporate matching gift application program from my employer. Very disappointing

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

very disappointing experience

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hire someone in this office who knows how to fill out a form and locate a photocopy of their 501C3 non-profit letter from the IRS.

This is one of the best Animal Shelter's around. Everything they make in donations goes directly to the animals care.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The animals I have encountered and the facility.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Wonderful and extremely knowledgable and helpful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Install an air conditioning system inside the dog kennels. Build a cat house so no cats would have to stay in a cage.
