It takes a village to rescue, rehabilitate and find homes for all of the beautiful and loving animals we have at Tails and Scales Animal Rescue.  As a volunteer-run organization, we need help fostering our animals and reptiles, fundraising to help with vet, food and training costs, and ultimately finding the perfect forever home for each and every animal.  


How you can help



Here at Tails and Scales Animal Rescue we do our best to ensure all animals get placed into their forever homes. We’ve established a secure process to assure all animals will be placed into homes that will be suited best for them and allow them to live happily ever after. 


Please check out our How to Adopt page to learn more about the adoption process and to access our adoption application.



We are always seeking people interested in fostering our rescues until we find them a permanent home. As a foster, you would provide love and care in a safe, secure environment for a minimum of one month (longer preferred).  You will receive all supplies needed while fostering, and will have open communication with a member of the Tails and Scales team. Included with foster care: dog food, supplies (crates, toys, bones, bowls), medical care (routine vaccines plus anything else dog may need), and 2 training sessions a month to keep up on our rescue pup’s manners.  

Please complete our Foster application  if you are interested in becoming a foster or learning more.



From dog walking and transporting supplies, to posting flyers around town or spreading the world through Facebook about our awesome pups and reptiles up for adoption, there is always a way to get involved at Tails and Scales.
