Non profit 501c3 all volunteer organization dedicated to helping homeless dogs and cats in Montgomery County, Tx.

OPERATION PETS ALIVE - All volunteer 501(c)3 non profit organization dedicated to helping homeless dogs and cats in Montgomery County, Texas. OPA operates 100% on donations. We do not have a shelter. We operate with a vigorous, dedicated foster program.

Our expenses include vet bills, spay/neuter, medicines, lab tests, adoption tents, cat TNR traps, crates, fans, tables and many more important support items and services. We also have ground and air transportation costs for our Pups on Trucks, Flight for Life, Kittens with Wings, Puppies with Wings programs too !!! We are blessed to have items donated to us from the general public, businesses and our wonderful volunteers. We are grateful. Proof that it 'takes a village'.

In the spirit of fundraising, some of our volunteers created this ETSY FUNDRAISING SHOP. They volunteer their time to craft items with donated goods.

We try to have something for everyone - humans and pets alike - unique, sparkly, soft, quirky, useful, quality items. We hope we become your favorite place to shop for your gift giving needs...

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Most items are customizable to other sizes. Specifically speaking about our pet beds/mats. If the fabric is still available the answer is generally 'yes' . There are some instances related to size that we are not prepared to handle. Give us a chance to see what you are wanting to have made.

Custom and personalized orders

We like to 'think outside the box' and will work on unique items or special sizes/fabrics as best we can. Give us a chance to see if your item is something we are able to handle - please send us a request to start the discussion

Custom orders will then have a special listing done. We will email you a link to your special order so you can review the details and ask any questions prior to you making the purchase.

We are an 'in stock' shop so special orders will have a longer delivery and you will be quoted the estimated time to produce your order.

Payment in full will be required prior to starting your special/custom order.

Custom orders are non-refundable as they are your unique requirement

Care instructions

PET BEDS/mats
Washing instructions for our petbeds/mats will be included in the shipment. The beds/mats are very very washable and dry-able and will last for a very long time. If you have any concerns about the quality or care of our pet beds beds prior to your purchase please send us a 'convo' we welcome the discussion

POTHOLDERS
machine washable and ready to go - touch up with light iron at your personal choice. These potholders are NOT suitable to be used in microwave.

CAT TOYS
- Those without catnip ok to wash and dry
- those with catnip we discourage machine washing

DOG TOYS
- braided tug toys, machine wash gentle and air dry (low dryer ok)

Other items (items change a lot, if concerned about a specific item, please ask)

Gift wrapping and packaging

Oh yes we can !

At this time we offer a free gift wrap with simple card if requested. We use a simple single color wrapping or kraft paper and generally tied with twine. Simple small card with inscription as you instruct.

We can drop ship your item to any of the 48 mainland states as long as you provide all instructions via comments in your order

Wholesale availability

Not at this time

What if I need more of an item than is listed

Send us a convo and let's start the discussion. Many times we can do additional quantities of something you want to purchase. It is best to probably ask the question prior to your purchase of the item you see and want. However if you were to think we CAN NOT provide more and you really want the item anyway, then by all means go ahead and proceed with your purchase so you don't miss out on the one you like.

Do you offer embroidery ??

Not at this time.

Shipping and packaging tidbit info for buyer

We love to recycle. It makes sense to us.

As a result we ship all goodies in recycled containers. By reusing a container it is the best form of recycling. We print on economy mode and use obsolete labels when we can.

So what this really means is we are trying to be good stewards of our environment and also - every dime not spent on a spiffy new container, well, then that just leaves more funds for the critters.

Is OPERATION PETS ALIVE a person or a business?
