Giving Tuesday is Almost Here!

Your donation on Tuesday, November 30 will go to the Tails Medical Fund, which supports the most vulnerable animals cared for at Tails Humane Society. 

This #GivingTuesday, we are raising money for the medical fund because:
Every pet deserves medical care!

Will you choose to support Tails Humane Society on this national Day of Giving?

Our goal this year is to raise $20,000 for the medical fund, which helps us:

  • Provide basic medical care to all homeless pets
  • Provide extensive medical procedures such as amputations when necessary
  • Treat animals suffering from heartworm disease, parvovirus, URIs and more
  • Spay/neuter and vaccinate all dogs and cats before adoption

Please, help us reach our goal with your donation this Giving Tuesday!

Tails Team Tie-Dye Night!

Did you know that November 7-13 was National Shelter Appreciation Week? Observed during the first full week in November, it's purpose is to celebrate and recognize the shelters that provide care to millions of homeless animals in America. Yes, millions! The observance also acknowledges the hard-working people supporting those efforts with their work at the shelters. We know that our team works hard every day to care for the thousands of homeless pets that come through our doors each year. So, we recently had a fun team building night at Tails where staff members met, enjoyed some snacks and tie-dyed new staff t-shirts together. Shelter pup Fawn even joined in on the fun as a special guest that night! Thank you to each and every staff member for all they do to make a difference in the lives of the homeless pets in our care. 


Adoptable Pet Spotlight: King Zeus

King Zeus has been in our care since August!

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.
