Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Tails of Hope Animal Rescue is dedicated to finding forever homes for dogs and puppies that were abandoned at County Shelters. Our outreach is limited due to our available foster space, but we do everything that we can to help pull puppies and dogs from at capacity kill shelters. We generally try to focus on the tristate area, pulling from rural shelters in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, but sometimes we get pulled into cases from other parts of the country.
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.
About Our Rescue Group:We won't take this space to preach, but put simply we're just trying to put a dent in it and save just one more. I'm not exaggerating when I say that we get over a hundred requests a week asking us to help with at capacity kill shelters. Every week they have to put down both dogs and puppies to make room for the new ones that are being surrendered and abandoned. For every dog that we take, we save two - the one we rescued, and one more for making that space available for another week. That's one more week of hope that another rescue can take them or an adopter can adopt them. If you have room in your heart and your home to foster, please consider sharing that gift with us. You would be amazed how many puppies you could save in just one months time, it's a true gift to the animal community.
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.
Come Meet our Pets:We schedule private viewings and set up at the Petsmart on Colerain Avenue in Cincinnati on Saturdays and some Sundays.
Our Adoption Process:Our adoption process begins with completing an application, and potential owners will be interviewed & evaluated, before approval is given.
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.
