Happy Tails


arlo_aka_hulkWe recently received an update from Arlo’s person. Arlo was known as Hulk at Tails He arrived as a tiny 4 week old stray last May. He was quickly placed in a foster home where he had the chance to grow and get healthy before coming to the shelter for adoption. He was adopted this past Fall and enjoyed his first holiday in a loving home!

Clear The Shelter

Tails will be participating in our 3rd annual clear the shelter event. On August 19th from 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM, all adult animals (6 months and older) will have their adoption fee waived! 

QUICK TIPS FOR CLEAR THE SHELTER:

-If you rent, please bring your signed lease with your current address that matches your current ID. The lease must state you have landlord approval for a pet.
-If you're adopting a pet into a family, please bring your family, not just one person representing the family.
-Many of our dogs available will require a meet and greet with current dogs in the home. Please plan to bring your dog or complete meet and greets earlier in the week
-The line starts early outside of Tails. Please plan ahead accordingly and assume there will be a waiting period outdoors.
