About Us

Mission

To address and alleviate animal welfare needs in Delta County and surrounding areas through education, sanctuary, adoption and spay/neuter practices.  
 

Vision

 To bring adoptable pets and families together for bright days and happy tails. 

Success

 We gauge success on the number of community spays and neuters as well as animals adopted.  

The Sanctuary

Safe From Harm

The TAILS Sanctuary acts as both a private and city facility. Animals are brought in by both the community and Animal Control and are able to relax and recouperate while awaiting their owners or adoption.

Dog Kennels

TAILS has 12 full size indoor/outdoor dog kennels that are heated and cooled. The walls are also soundproofed to facilitate a more relaxed environment for the animals. 

Outdoor Play Areas

TAILS has 5 outdoor play areas for the dogs in which they can run, play with toys or even hop in the pools! If they just want to find a shady spot and take a rest, that's ok too.

Cat Kennels

TAILS has 8 intake kennels for cats to relax in until they are ready to move into the cat room. The purpose of the intake area is to ensure that any sickness that might be hiding is seen and addressed before the cats move into the cat room as well as to gauge cat behaviors.

Cat Room

The TAILS cat room is a fun place! Lots of toys and things to climb as well as plenty of places to sleep. If they feel like having fresh air, a short trip through the tunnel to the outdoor cat enclosure is all that's needed!

Isolation

In the event that a dog or cat becomes sick or injured, our isolation room allows them a quiet place to heal and receive care until they feel better.
