Programs Supported by Your Donations
SPAY & NEUTER ANGEL PROGRAM (SNAP) ensures that essential veterinary care services of spay/neuter and rabies vaccination are made reasonably available to household pets in our area. A sliding scale fee based on household and income is offered to qualified participants. A Military discount is also available.
TRAP-NEUTER-RETURN (TNR) Program provides a critical veterinary package to community (homeless) feral cats who have no home and no potential for a home. TNR is the most humane and effective approach to improve the lives of feral cats, improve their relationships with the people who live near them, decrease the size of colonies over time, and prevent cats from entering shelters in the first place. Services are provided to colony caretakers/trappers at no charge.
AWARENESS & EDUCATION, COMMUNITY OUTREACH and STUDENT PROGRAMS allow Tails of Hope to create opportunities for members of our community to be better pet guardians, give back to the community, and establish a meaningful career that helps both animals and people in our area.
GENERAL DONATIONS are required to keep our doors open, purchase medical equipment/supplies, continue & grow Tails of Hope operations, acquire and retain high-quality staff, and continue vital services for our city shelters, local rescue groups, and individuals in our community who depend on our low-cost or no-cost programs.
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
A spay/neuter clinic addresses the Root Cause of pet overpopulation and why many animals enter a shelter in the first place. But unlike shelters we do not receive federal, state, or local funding. In addition, we are in the midst of Kitten Season, or feline breeding season, and pets as well as homeless "unowned" cats desperately need our low-cost or no-cost services. The sheer numbers and high reproductive capacity of community cats combine to make them the leading source of new kitten births and the greatest source of cats entering animal shelters. Without funding for spay/neuter clinics, the suffering of animals and the burdens on shelters will only continue to grow each year.
