Sweet Rocco had been living at a local land fill for over a month! He was so scared and would run away when people tried to help him - no one could catch him. We borrowed a live trap, and within two days the little guy was caught. Rocco is now safe here with us, and he is doing well. He is meeting new people, dogs and cats and is enjoying it all (overly excited dogs can be a little much for him). Rocco is a petite little guy (around 50 ponds) who is house trained and loves car rides. He listens well and loves to play with squeaky toys. Rocco has really bonded with us, and it appears as though he has some separation anxiety -  he does not want to be contained, and he does not want to be left alone - he has climbed six foot tall fences to find us. We are currently working with him on his anxiety issues and he is responding well.  Rocco would do best in a quiet home with someone who understands separation anxiety. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about this very special dog.

About Rescued Tails Animal Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

Rescued Tails is a small group of volunteers who believes that every life is valuable, and that every healthy or treatable animal is worth saving. We have an affinity for those animals whose chances of being rescued from impounds or kill-shelters are minimized due to breed, age, temperament and/or color. We provide training or seek medical treatment when applicable to ensure that every one of our animals gets a chance at a new beginning.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Some of our pets live at our sanctuary in Shell Lake, WI, and others are fostered in homes in the Twin Cities, MN area. We do adoptions days at least once a month. We can make arrangements for you to meet any of our pets on an appointment basis.

Our Adoption Process...

Welcoming a pet into your home is a commitment of time, patience, money and love. You should think very carefully and do your research before adopting any animal. Rescued Tails Animal Sanctuary spays / neuters all companion animals before adoption. All animals are vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm tested (dogs), feline leukemia tested and microchipped. If you find an animal that you are interested in on our web site please call, or e-mail us, and we will gladly tell you more about that special animal. Our experienced volunteers will help you select a companion animal that will fit your personality and lifestyle. We want you to experience a rewarding, lifetime relationship with your new companion. If you find a furry friend you wish to adopt you will fill out an adoption application and then a home visit will be set up. At the time of adoption you will fill out an adoption contract and pay the adoption donation.
