Announcements

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.
