Share Your Story

Instead of personal fundraising pages (which are expensive), TAILS set a team fundraising goal this year of $5,000 and we’re hoping you’ll help us reach it! 

Let your friends and family know that you are running for the rescues by visiting our team fundraising page! You can easily share this page via email and social media, tell people why you support animal welfare and ask them to join you by making a donation to TAILS.

Not only is it for a great cause but you could win big! The top fundraiser will nominate the 2017 Master of Ceremonies – your pet could be the star of the 5K! If you raise at least $25, you’ll have a chance to nominate our 2017 Lieutenant (winner drawn randomly on race day). To qualify, donors must make gifts in your honor while completing the online form.
