WALLKILL – The Pets Alive “Magic Bus” is in town. The colorfully painted retired city bus rolled into town on Saturday at the no-kill agency’s animal sanctuary in the Town of Wallkill with four rescued dogs, including two from Turkey. They will await adoption.

The bus will now transport animals to safety on rescue missions and travel to promote shelter pet adoption across the tri-state area.

The mission of Pets Alive is to improve the lives of companion animals by any means possible, including rescue, adoption, advocacy, collaboration, intervention and education.

The agency, headquartered near Middletown, is located on 80 acres. It also operates a second facility, Pets Alive Westchester, in Elmsford. The group is planning to open a sanctuary in Puerto Rico in late 2011.
