About Our Rescue Group...
Tuff Tails Animal Rescue was born on March 12, 2012! We are a 501c3 00% no kill animal rescue who saves the lives of cats and dogs from city and town kill shelters and those who are abandoned or alone in the streets. We are all volunteers who work daily for these precious pets with the vigor and passion of an army!
TUFF TAILS ANIMAL RESCUE MISSION STATEMENT
Tuff Tails Animal Rescue started with a dream and a notion that neighborhood girls with hearts of gold and a passion for homeless animals could and would make a difference. The difference that would save the lives of homeless pets in the city or town shelters, and the ones abandoned and alone on the streets. We believe it is our responsibility to protect these poor souls and find them their forever, safe, permanent homes so they will never again be in danger.
Each pet will be spayed or neutered, given all necessary vaccinations and standard medical care including a microchip. We will work diligently every day to inform our local communities and the general public, especially children, on the importance of the humane treatment for all animals. We will also spread the word on how to be a responsible pet owner and offer guidance to anyone in need. It is very important to us to increase public awareness of the companion animal overpopulation issue and provide solutions to end the killing of adoptable animals. We know and understand that together… we will make a difference!
We are an organization run solely by volunteers. We work with local veterinarians, trainers and other like minded compassionate people to rescue, house and keep the pets safe and healthy until their forever homes are found. We do not discriminate on breed and feel all furries are worth our love and devotion. We will work very hard to find all our rescues well-matched and carefully screened forever homes without exception.
Tuff Tails Animal Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt no-kill rescue and adoption agency. We rely solely on the kindness and generosity of animal lovers like you who open their hearts to help us take care of the orphaned animals that desperately need us.
In a nutshell, there is nothing more that Tuff Tails wants than to be able to take a once broken pet and make them whole again with a new life and forever home of their own.
"Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty”
Our Adoption Process...
All applicants must fill out our application answering all questions. We will then call you to discuss the animal you are interested in adopting. We will then make you an appointment to meet the pet if you have not already done so. Once the app is approved, we will then perform a home visit as the last step in the process.
In order to defray some of the costs, an adoption fee will be charged. All our pets will be spayed or neutered and up to date with vaccinations.
