Tails Humane Society has already helped more than 2,600 homeless animals find a forever home this year, and while we are happy to know they are safe and warm this holiday season, we know there are still more who need our help. Give the gift of a second chance to deserving pets this holiday season with a donation!

Home for the Howlidays: Christmas Sleepovers!

No plans for Christmas? Why not share your home this holiday and grant a Tails shelter dog's holiday wish! Our "Home for the Howlidays Christmas Sleepover" program gives the homeless dogs in our care a much needed break from the shelter and a chance to spend a few nights in a cozy home with you! 

The Tails Giving Tree Is Back!

Our Tails Giving Tree is up in the lobby and ready to help you make holiday wishes come true for homeless pets! It's fun and easy to participate! Simply choose one of the ornaments from our Giving Tree, purchase the item (or donate the cost of it) and drop it off at our front desk. 

Not able to visit in-person? You can always purchase items from our shelter's wishlist and have them shipped directly to the pets here at Tails! 

Thanks for making the holidays a little brighter for the animals at Tails!

Adopt a Cane's Plush Puppy!

While you're out and about this holiday season, why not take a break and treat yourself to a delicious meal at Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers . While you're there, make sure to bring home your very own adorable puppy to cuddle with! Whether you choose Charlie or Snoopy, you can feel good about your purchase because, for every plush Peanuts Puppy sold, Raising Canes will donate the proceeds directly to the animals in our care at Tails! It's a win-win for everyone!

Thank you to Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers for being such a great supporter to the animals at Tails!

Noodles & Company Dine Out 

What's better than eating a warm, saucy pasta meal on a cold January night? How about one that you don't have to cook and directly benefits the thousands of homeless animals in Tails Humane Society's care?! It's easy to participate, just dine-in or order carry-out from Noodles & Company in DeKalb, IL (located at 2561 Sycamore Rd in DeKalb) anytime from 4-8 pm on Tues, January 11 and 25% of your order total will be donated to Tails Humane Society! Make sure to mention the fundraiser while ordering in the store or simply use Promo Code GIVING25 while ordering online.


Adoptable Pet Spotlight: Marzipan

Fun, outgoing, affectionate, lap warmer - those are a few words that describe me, 5 year old Marzipan. I can be a little chatty too. I love to show off my belly, but that isn't always an invitation to rub it, hard as it may be to resist. I make a great paperweight if there are any papers around that need sitting on. Everyone always comments on my striking green eyes too. The other thing I should add is that I really don't like other cats, but I promise to spend lots of time with you and you won't even miss have another one. Since I'm a VIP here at the shelter, I'm staying in my very own place and helping with paper weight duties. If you would like to meet me, just ask the front desk to show you to my suite! See you soon!
