Many of the dogs that come to us have experienced extreme stress. Some of our dogs come from loving homes where they were cherished members of the family. Due to unfortunate circumstances, they are totally shell-shocked to suddenly be out of that environment and away from their loved ones. Others have been exposed to neglect, abandonment, life as a stray, and/or abuse… they have truly suffered.
Regardless of their background, each Tails of Gray dog receives the same uncompromising dedication to do right by them.
These precious dogs are welcomed into a home environment and we work at rebuilding the dog’s true character. We provide them with the medical attention they need to heal physically and the love and attention they need to heal emotionally. Senior dogs who may have come to us timid, frightened or otherwise emotionally scarred, blossom and flourish with the tender care that we provide as they await permanent placement in responsible and loving homes.
Tails of Gray saves the lives of innocent senior dogs left homeless for any reason, providing quality medical care and placing them into loving, responsible and permanent homes. It is our belief that the life of each senior dog is important.EACH ONE MATTERS.
Founded in 2014 by Stephanie Meissner, Tails of Gray is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit rescue organization that offers a safe and loving sanctuary for senior dogs regardless of breed, health or ease of placement. Our goal is to prevent needless euthanasia through the offering of shelter, adoption, foster, hospice and education.
All Tails of Gray senior dogs are spayed and neutered, microchipped and receive appropriate veterinary care and treatment.
Tails of Gray welcomes the unwanted and heals the sick. Those precious senior dogs who cannot be healed will spend their final days in a comfortable environment where they experience unconditional love, some for the first time.
