Building a compassionate community
through the care of companion animals

Wish List

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!

General Supplies

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.
