Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Beaumont Pets Alive was formed specifically to help the City of Beaumont become a no-kill city. Our founder, Dr. Kelley Kays, recognized the need due to the large number of animals that were being euthanized at Beaumont Animal Care solely due to lack of space and lack of resources to get the animals to rescue.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Hearts 2 Homes Transport Program

Our Hearts 2 Homes Transport Program has saved hundreds of pets since 2018! We transport dogs and cats to rescue partners in other states, the Pacific Northwest, and Canada that don’t have the pet overpopulation problems that exist in Southeast Texas. We are saving the lives of dogs and cats slated for euthanasia at the Beaumont city shelter. These animals often end up in our city shelter due to the lack of homes in our local community but find forever homes in other areas. Rather than these animals taking their last breath at the city shelter, they are given opportunities for new hope, new homes, and new families.

Population(s) Served

Have a barn or job that needs to be done? We have just the cat for you. Every animal that enters doors is an individual, and with that in mind, works to find the best
living situation for each. Although we would love to see every cat live 100% of the time inside a home, we occasionally receive cats that would prefer a different type of living situation like a barn or warehouse. These cats are typically independent animals that prefer humans at a distance and do not enjoy being handled. The Working Cat Program was created for these cats because they, too, deserve the type of home that best suits their lifestyle.

This program is part of Beaumont Pets Alive’s continued mission to help the animals in our community who need us most.

Population(s) Served

The Good Dog Training Program was designed to help harder to adopt dogs find their forever homes. These dogs are wonderful dogs. They’re playful, sweet, and affectionate… Their problem? The way they look. Dogs in the Good Dog Training Program are usually 50 pounds or over and have the appearance of a bully-type breed —which some people may find intimidating. Beaumont Pets Alive is here to change that perception! With our Good Dog Training Program, these dogs complete some of the most hands-on training out of all the dogs at BPA. These dogs are put through a rigorous but fun 4-week training course ending with a certification exam to show off their newfound skills.

A new initiative through which members of the community help spread the word on their social media platforms about things the shelter hopes for people to get involved with. We want to leverage the power of neighborhood support, especially around social media and the nextdoor.com platforms, and spread the word about lifesaving adoption events, sleepover programs, fundraising events, new fostering initiatives, the need for donations, and more. The Pet Ambassador will help share information about our mission and programs by attending special events as an ambassador. This may include tabling special events, phone solicitation, event planning, participating in adoption events, distributing flyers, or promoting our work on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Nextdoor.com). All material and information will be provided before an event. We will cover everything from adoptions, safety net fostering, affordable veterinary care, Spay&Neuter, to Trap-Neuter-Return.

Population(s) Served

Providing Hope for Pets and Their Families. The link between animal abuse and domestic abuse is well documented. Up to 52% of victims entering shelters leave their pets with their abusers; often because domestic violence shelters lack the infrastructure to house companion animals. Beaumont Pets Alive partners with domestic violence shelters to bridge this gap and provide a safe haven for pets displaced by family violence. Animals entering our program are provided up to 90 days of shelter in a private foster home, where they are loved and cared for until they can safely be reunited with their families. Minor veterinary care is also provided as needed, free of charge to the victim or the shelter.

Population(s) Served

Low-Cost Veterinary Care For Heroes. Beaumont Pets Alive is a proud supporter of our police officers, firefighters, dispatchers, and EMTs. If you have adopted your pet from a rescue group or municipal shelter, you qualify for exceptionally low-cost veterinary care! All you need is your adoption paperwork and your agency ID card. *Because our mission is to encourage adoption and reduce the euthanasia rate; this offer is not valid for pets purchased from a pet store or breeder.*

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Beaumont Pets Alive was formed to pull at risk animals from the Beaumont Animal Care to both save the animals and to help the city become a no-kill city. Once we became a 501c3, we started pulling at risk animals, getting them ready for adoption (sterilization, testing, vaccinations and any other medical needs) and started forming working relationships with the local PetCos and PetSmarts. We also started forming transport connections to be able to transport animals to other states.

Beaumont Pets Alive strategies for accomplishing our goals consisted of a lot of hard work getting our name out to the general public, all while working many hours each day caring for the animals we had pulled from Beaumont Animal Care.
We regularly were featured with a pet of the week at one of the local news stations.
We held many fundraisers combined with adoption events.
We designed, and put out, a calendar as a fundraiser featuring first responders from the City of Beaumont and out animals.
We sent out regular newsletters to our supporters to both keep them informed of upcoming events, but to also let them know which animals were available and which animals we needed to raise funds for.
We continue to fundraise, send out newsletters and work to raise the funding that is always needed in the animal rescue field.

Beaumont Pets Alive capabilities for accomplishing our goals came to be in the beginning due to large donations from others who believed in what we were trying to accomplish. These large donations gave us the ability we needed to start doing transports and holding adoption events. Additionally, we started actively seeking donations from the general public. We spoke with the media and many local businesses in order to make the people in the City of Beaumont aware of who we were and what we were trying to accomplish.

Beaumont Pets Alive has accomplished our original goal of making the City of Beaumont a no-kill city. We continue to pull at risk animals from the euthanasia list. Additionally, we have worked with other small rescues in the area to encourage them to start pulling animals also. We have expanded our transport locations, and now we transport to MA, NY, PA, UT, CO, and WA. (Although this has been greatly reduced due to the pandemic). We continue to fundraise and write grants to help us with adoption preparation costs. We have gotten creative in our work to adopt our animals, especially the dogs, as we cannot do our regular weekend adoption events yet. We have become adept at using Facebook Live to showcase our dogs and it works, as people are coming to our facility to adopt. The cats and kittens are still going to the local PetCos and Petsmarts. We have also expanded the range of our intake area and now we also pull at risk animals from the Port Arthur City Shelter and the Baytown City Shelter. Many of the animals we pull are medical cases and we fundraise on Facebook to help pay for the cost of whatever treatment is needed.
