Transport Program

Saving the lives at-risk animals through strategic partnerships

Tails Humane Society recognizes the crisis that pet overpopulation presents in communities where best practices in spay/neuter and other services have not yet been properly implemented. This program provides critical support to our partners who work tirelessly on the front lines of the pet overpopulation crisis. Thoughtful, strategic partnerships between open and limited admission shelters is a critical component to combat the mass euthanasia of pets nationwide.

Tails began transporting animals from the south in 2003 and was able to quickly find homes for these animals who had been rescued by our partners or were facing euthanasia in an open admission shelter. Through increased partnerships and the generosity of private and corporate donations, this program expanded in 2009 and continues to thrive today. 

Over 750 dogs will arrive at Tails through this life saving program each year. They are welcomed into a foster home where they spend a minimum of two weeks while their health and behavior is accessed. Many will spend weeks even months delivering and nursing their pups and/or recovering from conditions such as Heartworm disease or mange. A foster home environment promotes healing and helps keep shelter space available for our community pets in need.
