Tropical Tails Canceled

After much consideration, Tails has made the difficult decision to cancel Tropical Tails on April 4th due to recent concerns about the spread of COVID-19 and recommendations from the CDC. As our largest annual fundraiser, this event normally raises $75,000 to help us care for homeless animals throughout the year, and right now there is a lot of uncertainty about how Tails can recover these funds for 2020. 

How can you help in lieu of a Tropical Tails donation?

Tails is 100% donor and service funded, and we rely on support from our community to continue providing our life-saving services. We can’t do it without your help! Help us “Fund the Future” today by making a donation to support the animals in our shelter today AND the animals who will walk, run or hop through our doors in the future. From all of the animals here at Tails, thank you for your support.
