Tails is 100% donor and service funded so we rely very heavily on the generosity of our community. Aside from monetary donations, the following is a list of items we use most frequently. Items can now be purchased from our Amazon Wish List and shipped directly to Tails Humane Society. Shop through Amazon Smile and we’ll receive an additional donation!
Donations of general supplies are greatly appreciated and help us with the day to day care of over 250 animals that reside at our shelter and in our foster homes. Items can be shipped or dropped of at Tails located at 2250 Barber Greene Road, DeKalb, IL 60115.

With the start of the new year, we're thrilled to announce that we adopted 2,056 dogs, cats and little critters in 2016. These animals all came to us in need and because of YOU, we're here for them. To everyone who adopted, volunteered, fostered and donated to make this happen - thank you!
Tails recently received a $4,000 grant from the ASPCA in support of our 2017 Transport Program. This program partners with open-admission shelters and animal control agencies to transport dogs and puppies who are high risk for euthanasia due to space and resource limitations. Our network of amazing foster families open their homes to hundreds of dogs each year while they await their turn for adoption.
Thank you ASPCA for your support of this life-saving program!
