Building a compassionate community
through the care of companion animals

Help Us, Help Them!

Tails is 100% donor and service funded.  We rely on support from our community to continue providing our life-saving services.  Thank you for your support!

We need your help! Last week, we were contacted by one of our rescue partners with an urgent plea to assist in a dog hoarding situation in rural Mississippi. An elderly couple had become overwhelmed with the number of dogs they were caring for and we’re grateful they reached out for help! In less than 24 hours, our team mobilized and loaded our vehicles with transport crates, blankets, medical supplies and food and drove down to the property. Upon arrival, our team got to work immediately. We were able to rescue 44 dogs who were living in deplorable conditions, covered in fleas and ticks, many are suffering from matting, skin infections like mange and seven of the dogs have tested positive for heartworm disease. The dogs have since been placed into loving foster homes where they will finally receive the love and care that they so desperately need. None of these 44 dogs have ever known the comfort and safety of a home with a warm bed, nutritious food or even the love of a family.

Because of your support and generous donations, they finally will.

Please, help us help them. Your donation today will help us to continue to care for the thousands of animals, who just like these dogs, will come through our doors each year.
