About Our Shelter:

Tails a' Waggin' Rescue, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, no-kill animal shelter for abandoned, homeless, and abused animals. Tails a' Waggin' Rescue provides for the medical needs and daily care of animals in the shelter. The individuals who volunteer there time to Tails a' Waggin' Rescue attempt to spend concentrated time with the animals and to provide them with love and affection.

After volunteers have observed an animal for a length of time sufficient to ensure good health, Tails a' Waggin' seeks to place the animal in a loving and caring home by offering it for adoption. Each prospective animal owner is required to sign an agreement to keep vaccinations current, to call Tails a' Waggin' Rescue first if they are unable to keep the animal, and (in the case of dogs) to provide heartworm medicine and annual heartworm tests. All animals at Tails a' Waggin' Rescue are already spayed/neutered, have received age appropriate vaccinations. All cats have been tested for FELV/Fiv and all adult dogs have received a negative heartworm test within the last year..

Tails a' Waggin' Rescue, Inc. is a “no-kill” shelter, which means that it:

• Takes all possible measures, regardless of expense, to treat animals that are abused, ill or otherwise suffering;

• Does not euthanize animals except in the event of unreasonable pain and suffering; and

• Does not transfer animals to other shelters or facilities that euthanize animals for any reason other than unreasonable pain and suffering.

Tails a' Waggin' Rescue has recently moved to a permanent facility. Tails a' Waggin' Rescue hopes to purchase this facility in the near future, but is currently leasing the property.

Other than the agreement for new owners described above, Tails a' Waggin' Rescue does not impose any additional requirements on any person. Tails a' Waggin' Rescue presently charges new owners $100 for each dog/cat adoption and $120 for each puppy/kitten adoption. These fees are established to cover no more than the cost of providing food, shelter, and medical treatment (including vaccinations and health checks) for the animals in the rescues care. In many cases, the cost to Tails a' Waggin' Rescue of caring for an animal exceeds this standard adoption fee.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
