Pet's Alive will be sponsoring the Boris and Robyn Pet Costume contest from WPDH on Saturday October 27, at Petco in Poughkeepsie.  The events is from noon to 2pm on Route 9 in Poughkeepsie.  We talk at great length about the event during our interview.

Also, during the interview we discuss Pet's Alive.  From their 82 acre facility in the Orange County.  Mary Ann, discussed the cat house, where they house over 90 cats at one time.  Plus how the public can adopt dogs and cats, even pigs and horses.  Yes, it's a full working farm with animals.
