Shelter Spotlight – TAILS Humane Society

One grant recipient, TAILS Humane Society, is using their 2015 PEDIGREE Foundation grant for a terrific program to give more dogs the opportunity to find their forever home.

12400761_10153971296687089_4712675789415776641_n In 2009, the TAILS Humane Society started a transport program partnering with open admission shelters to save the lives of dogs who are at-risk for euthanasia. An open admission shelter in Oklahoma reached out to TAILS Humane Society after uncovering a hoarding situation. They were inundated with animals and needed help. TAILS responded and the partnership and program were born.

These pets are usually highly adoptable but often suffer from a minor, treatable medical condition that creates a barrier to adoption at shelters. As a limited admission shelter, TAILS can give these animals the time and care they need to become healthy and ready for adoption.

Meet Spud. This sweet dog was found tied to a stake outside with no food, water, or shelter in Mississippi. His rescuers received a call from a woman who reported that her son abandoned him there 3 weeks earlier. They were completely full but didn’t want to fail this dog. TAILS was already planning a transport to Delta Animal Rescue Extension Services, so they immediately agreed to take him. Now, Spud is in a foster home spending his days gaining weight and being loved.

Thank you for going above and beyond to help us help dogs, TAILS!
