Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Once a dog or puppy comes into our program, we do age appropriate vetting and work hard to match them with approved homes. We also are dedicated to making sure that each dog and puppy that comes through our program is altered so that they don't contribute in the future to the gross pet overpopulation problem that plagues the tristate area. Older puppies and adults are altered before being adopted out, and puppies are required via our contract and a spay/neuter deposit to be altered when they are deemed old enough by a veterinarian.
Tails of Hope Animal Rescue does not have a physical shelter. We don't have the funds or staff to support such a large endeavor. Instead we are a network of loving foster parents that care for our puppies and dogs through the week and meet at the Colerain Petsmart on Saturday and some Sundays to view our animals. We work hard all week long to approve as many adoptions as we can, so that our available pets can go to their forever homes during our viewing hours. We also try to make ourselves available through the week to meet approved applications if that is their preference and they're available to meet us.
Tails of Hope Animal Rescue reserves the right to approve or deny any application to adopt a pet from our organization. We do not adopt pets for resale or medical research.
Our adoption fee is $75.00 + a 75.00 spay/neuter deposit for puppies, which includes vaccines, deworming, and general care that Tails of Hope has already provided for the pet. Adult adoption fees range from $75 - $150 which is determined by the time that they have been in rescue, we don't want an adoption fee to come between the chance of an adult being able to enjoy a life at a new home. All adults and older puppies will be altered before leaving and up to date on vaccines, HW Preventative and Flea Preventative. We use the services of a low-cost clinic to keep vet expenses down, and to make adoption affordable.
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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
