Tails is a great shelter to adopt a pet from. Their shelter is very sanitized and the staff there is great. Just last Sunday, I adopted my two new kitties, Ash(original name was Missy) and Cubbie(original name was Peanut). They were very good at explaining everything about adopting a cat from their facility. They could definitely use the help of winning the shelter makeover because they are nonprofit AND no-kill. Each day, they have close to 200 animals in their facility. The animals there are wonderful though.

Pros: ???

Cons: ???

Love Tails

posted 7 years ago

I love Tails. I have recently signed up to volunteer there but have not started yet. Their animals all look very happy and are well cared for. They also offer several "starter kits" for new pet owners at a very reasonable price. This is a great place to adopt a new best friend.

Pros: The staff is friendly and very helpful, anything that they do not know about the animals in their shelter, they quickly find out.

Cons: They do not have a fenced in area for dogs to run and play in outdoors, but they are walked several times a day by volunteers.
