A team for TAILS HUMANE SOCIETY
"Team Lexi" a team to help the TAILS HUMANE SOCIETY...
Hi everyone! While I have only been with TAILS for a short time, this place has become one of my greatest sources of pride. Being able to help all of these babies on a daily basis and see them placed in their future homes gives me a sense of fulfillment I never knew I could have. I don't yet have any TAILS animals myself, but am lucky to have 5 fur babies of my own from other rescues. Lexi is our only "dog child" and she was rescued from Florida in 2012. She is such a wonderful little girl! We also have 4 cats, Boo Boo, Ollie, Walter and Zoey. One of the most rewarding parts of my job is being able to facilitate the adoptions. After hearing the story of what my Ollie went through, I feel placing a pet with the RIGHT home is one of the most important things we can do for them. Ollie was returned multiple times and ran away from her final home before us, walking 9 miles from where her owners lived back to the shelter. To imagine what could have been so awful that she would walk so far to get away breaks my heart and we are beyond lucky to call her our own now. This is the single most important job I have ever done and it has become such an integral part of my life.
The money raised through this page will help the shelter with veterinary costs for the shelter animals. TAILS cares for over 2,500 homeless pets each year and provides a variety of free services designed to nurture the human-animal bond. TAILS receives no government funding and the adoptions fees only cover a fraction of the actual cost of care the animals receive. At an average cost of $200 per animal multiplied by 2,500 animals a year, it's clear just how important it is for TAILS to reach its fundraising goal and we are committed to doing our part to help make that happen. As a staff member at TAILS, I can attest to the good work that is done here every day, and I ask you to make a contribution to our fundraising page at whatever level you can afford. Donating through this website is simple, fast, secure, and the most efficient way to support our fundraising efforts. I give you my personal assurance that the donation you make will be used wisely and will make a difference for animal welfare.
