Operation Pets Alive revving up for annual rescue ride
CONROE, Texas -- Braap! Operation Pets Alive (OPA) is revving up for it’s Third Annual OPA Rescue Ride, Saturday, April 22, 2017.
Calling riders, back-warmers, guests, vendors, sponsors, donators and more to join them for a day of family friendly rescue fun, all to benefit Operation Pets Alive, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all-volunteer organization striving to elevate Montgomery County to a No-Kill Community through innovative programs that help save the lives of thousands of unwanted and homeless pets in our Community every year.
The day kicks off for all April 22, at 9:30 a.m. with A ‘Flight for Life’ at Galaxy FBO, Conroe-North Houston Regional Airport. OPA fosters and volunteers, riders and guests will gather to send off our rescue ’Flight for Life’, where up to 60 homeless pets will board with our partners at Hank’s Flights, and take to the skies destined for the Rocky Mountain State of Colorado and on to second chances at life with loving forever families. A breakfast through the Black Walnut Cafe will be offered to Riders and guests alike. Wheels up at 10 a.m.
The Motorcycle Rescue Ride follows. Kickstands up at 11 a.m. Riders will blip the throttle, and head out for a scenic 75 mile ride through the countryside of Montgomery County. The ride includes several stops, and wraps up at Southern Star Brewing Company in Conroe, TX, for a huge family friendly After-Party and Celebration/Fundraiser, featuring Southern Star’s First Annual BBQ Cook Off to benefit Operation Pets Alive, Food Trucks, Silent Auction, Live Entertainment, Vendor Booths, Raffle, Games, Dog Demonstrations, Pet Adoptions and more.
