Kelly Needs Our Help

Rescue one, until there are none. 

That has been Kelly's mission for the last fourteen years. Kelly began Tails of Hope in 2003 and under her watch, over 4,000 dogs and cats have found loving forever homes. 

In the last decade I have known Kelly to do without, always putting the needs of her animals first. 

Kelly awakes at 5 a.m. and tirelessly nurses sick or injured dogs, works with trainers and buys only the best nutritious food. Kelly works nonstop cleaning, feeding, walking and making numerous trips to the vet. She does this seven days a week.

Recently, Kelly was bitten on her right hand, requiring one of her fingers to be amputated by a hand surgeon.  She has had to hire someone to do her work at the kennel. She remains in great physical pain and will require physical therapy.  Additionally, she will also soon be facing thousands of dollars in medical bills as well as paying for additional staff to do the work Kelly can no longer do herself.  Unfortunately, we cannot undo her great pain, but we can support her financially. I urge you to help reduce her signficant medical bills. Every contribution makes a difference and no amount is too small. 

Kelly has devoted the last fourteen years to helping others. Now, it is our time to help her.
