We need you and so do the animals! At Tails, we offer a variety of exciting opportunities designed to provide the best quality of life for homeless animals in our care. There are opportunities to work directly with our animals or you can support us behind the scenes.

Happy Tails


We received this collage from adopter Katie G. They adopted Cassie (fka Talula) almost 10 years ago! Katie told us “She will be 11 in January but has been apart of our family from before our kiddos. She is the original baby. lol. Thanks Tails for helping us find the perfect kitty for our family.” Thanks to you for providing Cassie with a loving home for all of these years. We love to hear from about our alums!

Thank you DCCF!

Thank you to the DeKalb County Community Foundation (IL) for awarding us a $1300 Community Needs grant! This will help offset the cost of new kennel doors in our behind the scenes dog room. The original doors are over 12 years old and badly need to be replaced after housing thousands of dogs over the years.

Thank you QLP!

We'd like to say thank you to our awesome friends at Quality Logo Products and everyone who participated in their #QLPHowloween event! By sharing posts of your animals in costume, you raised $1,000 for our shelter - we're howling with excitement here!
