  • Angel, an American Staffordshire terrier, is available for adoption at Pets Alive in Middletown.

MIDDLETOWN — Pets Alive will host a charity Poker Run to benefit homeless animals on Saturday, Aug. 4.
Motorcyclists will meet at O’Toole’s Harley Davidson in Wurtsboro to register, from 10:30 a.m. to noon.
The cost is $25 donation per bike, $10 per passenger.
Pre-register on and receive a free T-shirt.
A scenic, back road, 95-mile ride will end with an after-party at The Carriage House in Barryville, N.Y., featuring food, a cash bar, music by DJ Danny Salgado, and entertainment by street magician and mentalist Chris Dare.
Pets Alive Animal Sanctuary is the oldest and largest no-kill animal rescue in the United States. It has expanded from its 80 acres in Middletown to Pets Alive Westchester (formerly the Elmsford Animal Shelter) in Elmsford, N.Y.
In 2011 Pets Alive opened a sanctuary and bed and breakfast rescue retreat in Puerto Rico to eradicate the abuse and neglect of companion animals common in Puerto Rico.
The Poker Run will be held rain or shine. For more information or to learn more about Pets Alive, visit
