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.

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.
