As FYI, GoFundMe tracks your contributions to Tails of Hope Dog Rescue and the running total of your generous donations is reflected at the top of this page. Although we have raised over $20,000 on this site over the past few years, the balance in the GoFundMe account is withdrawn monthly to pay our vet bill. No volunteer gets paid. When the coffers are low, we buy food out of our personal budgets. When we run all over town and beyond to adoption events, home visits, shelters and our vet, no one gets reimbursed for either their time or their travel expenses. It's all about the dogs. So when it looks like we have all this money at our disposal, please understand that we squeak out every dime from every source every month, including our GoFundMe balance, to ensure that our rescued dogs are safe and made whole again. All of this is possible because of our amazing supporters. We couldn't do what we do without you.
Tails of Hope Dog Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3), non-specific breed rescue made up of dedicated dog lovers. We have a network of families and individuals who provide foster care for dogs and puppies (some too young or sick for adoption) until they can adopted into loving, responsible homes. Tails of Hope Dog Rescue's purpose is to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome abused, abandoned, neglected, and unwanted dogs and puppies. We are known as the go-to rescue for puppy mill survivors and special-needs dogs. We do not back down from hope, even if it's just a glimmer. Currently, we have an 8 year old Yorkie in foster, who was unwanted by his former family because his is blind from cataracts and always underfoot. Although we raised the $2,200 for his surgery, we were heartbroken to find that his retinas were far too damaged for repair. We are now looking for the perfect forever home for Skipper. The cost of his surgery is absorbed by Tails of Hope. We do not pass along these medical bills to the adopter. It's all about what's best for the dog. Skipper's adoption fee is only $150. We also have a sweet Pittie girl named Charlotte, who came into our rescue around the first of December as a chewed-up mangy bait dog, destined for euthanasia. Enter Tails of Hope, In just three short months her transformation to a tenderhearted beauty is nothing short of miraculous. To learn more about Tails of Hope, please visit our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/tailsofhopedogrescue?fref=ts Our adoption fees are very low and do not come close to covering the cost of preparing our precious furbabies for adoption. All of our rescues are up to date on all vaccinations, bordatella, rabies/are spayed/neutered, wormed, current on heartworm prevention and flea prevention, microchipped, heartworm negative and if heartworm positive have been treated prior to adoption. All medical records are given in a adoption packet at the time of adoption. What a blessing it will be to Tails of Hope if you can help us out with our medical bills. Our wonderful vet lets us carry a balance (which is huge) and we pay it down as donations come in. Tails of Hope is operated strictly by volunteers and funded entirely by donations. Every dollar raised goes towards making these babies whole again.
We believe in four major steps : Rescue/Renewal/Rehome/Repeat. Please help us continue to help these wonderful dogs in need. Thank you. IMPORTANT NOTE: I am the volunteer fundraiser coordinator for Tails of Hope. Since an actual person is needed for the GoFundMe account set up, my name will appear on your reciept. Please know that I am just the administrative arm of this fundraiser and every dollar raised is sent directly to Tails of Hope.
Thank you again for your generosity.
