Pet Tails Rescue FACILITY

$4,085 of $2,860 goal

Raised by 52 people in 23 months

Pet Tails Rescue began in 2012.  To date we have rescued and successfully rehomed close to 2,000 wonderful dogs and cats that were slated for unknown futures in high kill southern shelters.  We have done this through a network of network of selfless individuals who offered up their homes as a facility for quarantine and fostering of our rescues. 

in November we decided to spread our wings and open a rescue facility in our community.  Our vision is a center not only for our rescue animals but to be a resource to our community.  A place to socialize.  A place to adopt where there is a comfy couch...soft music and a wood stove burning.  A place of love, support and comfort for our animals, volunteers and adopters.

We have come so far and are so close.  But it seems we have hit one stumbling block after another.  First it was mold.  We had to tear out days of work to remove a mold issue in our quarantine area.  Then it was a drainage pump that went and we had no water.  Once that was repaired we realized that the hot water heater was shot and now needs repair or replacement.  It has become overwhelming.  Our bank account is depleted and our spirit is lost.  We have considered throwing in the towel and calling it quits.   But somehow I don't believe that is the path we are meant to take....

We need just a little help to get through this setback.  Our hope is to get our facility inspected within the next 2-3 weeks so that we can start bringing up the dogs and kitties that have families waiting for them here in NH right now.  They won't get to their waiting families unless we can get our facility over this most recent setback.  And we can't do this without asking for help.  We just don't have the money to continue without reaching out.

If you are able to assist Pet Tails Rescue reach our goal with even a $5 donation please help us help Cotton, Joy, Sally, Joey,  Izzy and Trooper (and all those to follow) get our new facility ready for their arrival and then finally  into the loving arms of their families. 

All of these sweet innocent hearts will never know your generosity...will never know your kindness....but there is a part of their soul that recognizes that they were saved and there is a heart that beats and knows love because of your donation towards our cause.  On behalf of every heart and soul of every rescue pup and kitty that will be saved in part due to your generosity ...I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

We have been blessed. My spirits have risen and this path that has been laid before me is once again being cleared.

The entire Board of Directors and our community at large thanks each of you who have helped us exceed our goal. To each of you who have invested their hearts, their time and who have reached deep I am humbled by your sacrifice on our behalf and on behalf of all of our animals who will be saved.

I have read every name...and read every message. I see the names of so many adopters who are now sharing their lives with one (or maybe more of our rescue animals) and then I see the names of those who I don't know...those who are supporting our cause because they want to give to support a worthy cause and help to save the lives of some truly wonderful animals who would never have the opportunity of a loving family. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart thank you.

We are progressing. From the generosity of a previous adopter we just had a hot water heater donated. And another adopter is donating his electrical services. The bathing room is nearing completing. Cabinets are going up. Carpentry work is being competed. We are in the final stretches.

We will be planning to get our inspection with the next 2 weeks so that we can begin getting our dogs and cats up here from the south. We will be announcing our OPEN HOUSE shortly and hope to meet as many of you as possible. We want nothing more than to meet you, to give you a hug and to show you what our hearts and hands have made for our community...and for the lives of all the dogs and cats we will be saving and sending on with blessings for a happy wonderful life. And all in part because of the generosity of people like you who blessed their path.

Photos will be posted shortly.

Please note donations are tax deductible and as a non-profit we are always in need.

Please donate. Our Lucky seen on the right is a beautiful old soul and so worth saving. Thank Pet Tails for bringing him into our lives. As I text this message he is curled up next to me. He follows me throughout the house. I always tell him that this is his forever home and how much I love him.
