Once Upon a Wag
Fetching Tails started when a group of volunteer advocates resolved to Do More.
What began in a small suburban dining room as a modest neighborhood effort quickly grew into a respected community organization dedicated to the promotion of animal life and companionship.
Every year, we help more than 500 dogs find their new forever homes.
We work with a dedicated community of local leaders, volunteers, and medical professionals to support animal welfare.
Working together, we've helped save and rehome more than 2,000 rescue dogs.
We help every dog we work with, regardless of age, breed, or physical ability.
Diversity and Inclusion
Our Welcoming Approach
The Fetching Tails community is committed to the promotion of equitable treatment and the elimination of discrimination in animal adoptions. We believe each person deserves the opportunity to welcome one of our unique four-legged friends into their lives, and we encourage every household to “shine bright” and embrace their unique personalities (meaning: be who you are; there's a dog out there who's going to be perfect for your lifestyle).
Just like dogs, we don’t discriminate between race, ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, religion, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, education, marital status, language, or physical appearance. We welcome a diversity of ideas, thoughts, perspectives, and values.
You do have to be passionate about dogs though. That's a must.
