To Benefit Pets Alive
By Steven Bernstein
All pet owners and animal lovers should mark their calendars and come to the Millwood Animal Hospital on Sunday May 19th to participate in Millwood’s 1st annual Tails to Trails event, an afternoon Pet Fair, to support Pet’s Alive.
Pet’s Alive is a no-kill rescue operation for companion animals. They have been rescuing abused and abandoned animals for over thirty years. Their mission is to rescue animals and find them wonderful homes where they can live happily.
“They’re very interested in finding their animals a forever home,” said Tara Mikolay, the owner of Desires by Mikolay, who donated $3,500 to Pet’s Alive last December, from a charity shopping event.
From 11a.m.-4p.m., the Millwood Animal Hospital will have dog trainers and groomers on site, along with many dogs and cats up for adoption rescued by Pet’s Alive. Chappaqua-Millwood Chamber of Commerce member Carolyn Simpson of DoubleVision will also be there to take professional pet photos. A portion of the sales will go to Pet’s Alive to help them continue their work helping animals in need.
Dr. Daniela Goldman, one of the owners of the Millwood Animal Hospital, will be on hand to help with any pet related questions. “Pet’s Alive does great work. I have been working with them for around five years,” said Dr. Goldman.
In addition to the events at the Millwood Animal Hospital, people will have the opportunity to take a community building walk down the North County Trail: “We want people to enjoy the beautiful North County Trailway,” said Rob Greenstein, head, of the Chappaqua-Millwood Chamber of Commerce.
On the way to the North County Trail, people will have the opportunity to see “the wonderful mix of Millwood stores in between,” said Greenstein. Several merchants will be holding sidewalk sales for all those who want to stroll through the town and see what Millwood has to offer.
This great event is being sponsored by Millwood Animal Hospital and Drug Mart. For more information on Pet’s Alive, go to http://petsalive.com/ to learn about this organization that is making a real difference in the lives of companion animals.
