My story

Oliver is SPECIAL NEEDS. He is rear paralyzed. He requires daily manual bladder expression. He is a little moody. He can be a challenge. He is not for an inexperienced adopter or one who has no experience with paralysis and its financial requirements and physical requirements. So please don't ask if you don't have qualifications to care for him. He was taken to an open access facility because his family could not care for him. We will not allow for that to happen again to him.

Oliver is a moody dog. He can be super friendly or a bit nippy and introspective. He needs a skilled adopter who has the time to work with him and his needs. He gets along with other animals and will make a good companion for a person with patience.

Oliver is neutered and fully vaccinates and microchipped. He will be getting a dental soon.

We are only able to adopt in our local Chicago metro area. We are volunteers who work full time. If you are interested in Oliver please message us and we will try to get back to you within 48 hours.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

To adopt any animal from Rescue Tails we require a completed and verified adoption application. Once we can review the application, we can set up a meet and greet. We ask that all members of the household including pets are available for us and prospective pet to meet. Providing that goes well, we will set an appointment with you for a home visit. If all goes well we can proceed to the final step of finalizing the adoption.

More about this rescue

Rescue Tails Animal Welfare is dedicated to rehoming pets from high kill shelters. We choose an animal one at a time and evaluate what issues caused the animal to end up in the shelter and address those issues. Most often we find behavioral issues and/or medical issues . We deal with whatever it is to the best of our ability and then place the pet up for adoption to a responsible pet guardian. It is our goal to prevent the pet from returning to the system again. We work with the pets and carefully match them to their forever homes.
