Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic

Every year, millions of cats and dogs are euthanized in the United States due to the tragedy of pet overpopulation. We also know that the best way to fight overpopulation is through the spay/neutering of all owned animals. That’s why we operate a low-cost spay/neuter program available to all pet owners regardless of income or residency. Call today for your pet’s appointment – (815) 758-2457 ext. 114.

Surrendering A Pet

Long ago, Tails made the philosophical decision to limit our admission based on available space and overall resources, rather than accepting all animals as they come to us.  The limited admission philosophy allows us to focus on the individual needs of the animals in our care. Therefore, we can’t accept all the animals who need our help and must instead, prioritize our care. Please contact us to discuss relinquishing your animal to Tails.

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.
