TAILS receives no government funding. We rely on support from our community to continue providing our life-saving services. Thank you.
Your gifts help us carry out our mission in many ways:
$1,000 feeds all the animals in the shelter for a month
$500 feeds all the dogs in the shelter for a month or provides medical care for a special needs animal
$250 allows TAILS to spay and neuter a litter of kittens prior to adoption
$100 pays for food, vaccines, and medicines for a litter of rescued puppies or for microchipping 20 pets before adoption
$50 allows us to rehabilitate and release two litters of orphaned wild animals
$35 covers the cost of spaying a cat and preventing future unwanted litters or allows us to provide a free routine veterinary checkup for a homebound Meals on Wheels client’s pet
$25 pays for the care of one adult cat for a week
TAILS appreciates all gifts and we use them wisely for maximum effectiveness.
