We are proud to have achieved our gold badge for 2023, and we will continue to strive to maintain it for years to come. We are fully committed to remaining entirely transparent as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, as all non-profits should be.

How much of my donation directly supports the cause?

All donations are fully committed to directly supporting Rescue Tails Animal Sanctuary. We use the donations we are given to feed, house, and care for the animals at our sanctuary, as well as to ensure our dedicated staff are paid for their hard work and passion caring for all rescues on site. We will also use donations to spread outreach and education at times, ensuring that we are teaching people everywhere about the importance of animal welfare and ensuring animals everywhere have the best chance at a safe, happy life.

Our volunteers come in a few tiers. Volunteers 18 years and older need only fill out a volunteer application and wait to be notified of orientation and training.
