Celebrate HOWL-O-WEEN!

Looking for a new best friend to get a little spooky with? Need a cuddle buddy to help keep you safe while you watch scary movies? Why not adopt one of our very special, “Forget Me Not Club” dogs! These wonderful dogs have typically been at our shelter more than 30 days and through no fault of their own, keep getting passed over while others are adopted! To make it easier for them to find their forever homes, we’ve partially sponsored them, making their adoption fees just $200 or less! Come meet one of these amazing pups and find your new best friend at Tails today!

Did you know that Tails Humane Society operates our own Spay and Neuter Clinic? Conveniently located across the parking lot in our Training and Veterinary Care building, the Tails Spay/Neuter clinic is a non-profit surgical clinic that provides high quality, affordable spay/neuter surgeries and preventative care. Our vision is to reduce dog and cat overpopulation so that all pets have a loving home. As the area's only affordable spay/neuter clinic, we believe cost should not be a barrier to any pet owner who wants to do their part to keep their pet healthy and help control the pet population!


Adoptable Pet Spotlight: King Zeus

Feeling lonely? I bet that I can fix that with my handsome face! The name's Zeus and as you can see by my photo, I wasn't joking. I'm one good looking 4 year ols pup! Bandanas are my favorite accessory, but what I'd really like is one of those fancy ID tags on my collar that says I'm yours. That's right, I want a home of my own. A family to love me not just for my stunning smile, but for me and my great personality. I'm a almost 4 year old boy, so I'm past all the puppy stuff but still have lots of energy, love and years left to share with you. I love people and I am eager to please, so I would love to go to training class and learn how to be a perfect gentleman. (Lucky for us, it's included in my adoption fee!) Also, since I am such a king I need to be your one and only animal in the home! Won't you come to Tails and meet me today? I'll be waiting!

PS... My adoption fee has been FULLY sponsored by a volunteer, and also in loving memory of a special dog named Liberty.
