Rescued Tails Animal Sanctuary Animal rescue in Shell Lake, WI

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.

Rescue FAQs

Rescued Tails Animal Sanctuary is a non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to rescuing, caring for and placing homeless animals. We promote positive people / animal relationships through our adoption and educational programs advocating humane treatment of all animals, including the importance of spaying and neutering. Some of the animals that come to Rescued Tails Animal Sanctuary are older, sick or have suffered from severe neglect or cruelty. We value the life of each companion animal and provide a permanent safe haven for animals as needed. At the sanctuary we work to rehabilitate companion animals that need additional training and time and then attempt to place them in appropriate homes. If we should ever place an animal that is not succeeding in a home environment then we will gladly take them into our hearts and care for them here at the sanctuary. Our sanctuary is located in Shell Lake, Wisconsin, and most of our foster homes are located in the Twin Cities Metro area of Minnesota
