Tails of Courage is a non-profit animal rescue organization committed to rescuing dogs from shelters. We are entirely funded by donations and depend on volunteers.
We do not have a shelter or boarding facility, but instead rely upon foster homes to shelter and nurture our furry friends until a loving forever home is found. We are always happy to answer any questions about adopting a new pet and will gladly provide any support you may need throughout the adoption process.
Each animal is tested, and upon meeting a series of criteria may be chosen for training as a therapy dog for a Soldier at no cost to the military member.
