Tails of Rescue opened 4.7.15 @ 981 Lake Blvd Redding, CA

We are a non profit 501 (c) 3 Mutts Transport Service doing business as (DBA) Tails of Rescue

We rescue animals! That means that we do not rescue perfect animals. We rescue puppies, kittens, old dogs, old cats, animals that are ill with heartworm or cancer, blind, deaf, with only three legs. We rescue animals that have lived in a loving home all their lives, but we also rescue animals that have been beaten, starved, and abandoned. Each of these animals has different needs. There is not a “one size fits all” philosophy in rescue. That’s why we have adoption applications and why we interview homes our Volunteers devote countless hours, with their only return the joy of seeing a pet go to a good home.

Mutts Transport Service doing business as (DBA) Tails of Rescue is a volunteer based, non profit, 501c3 organization that literally saves dogs and cats from shelters euthanasia list. We pull animals from our local shelters (Colusa County, Shasta County, and Trinity County) to try to reduce the number of unwanted animals locally. Tails of Rescue is a shelterless rescue (foster based), but animals are in the store daily. We rely on the generosity of our volunteers and foster families to provide short- and long-term care and rehabilitation for our rescues until they can be placed with their forever families.

100% of all donations are used to benefit our rescue animals. We have no paid staff and no paid administrative personnel. We do our own websites and cut cost every place we safely can.

We invite you to explore our website and humbly offer you the chance to let one of our exceptional animals touch your heart the same way they each touch ours. Without you, we couldn't do what we do, and that is to simply give them a chance. Without you, our animals don't stand a chance. We have a thrift store to help us offset our vet bills and transport costs. Please stop in an visit with animals and do a little shopping.

A Special Note About Senior Pets
You rarely will hear stories more filled with love than those told by adopters of senior pets. Often overlooked in favor of the playful puppy or cuddly kitten in the next cage, senior dogs and cats make wonderful companions.

Thank you for your support!


Sometimes people feel they are burned by charity organizations–too much goes into human salaries and frivolous waste. We understand/agree. NO donations go toward salaries at Tails of Rescue because we have NO salaried employees. All donations go toward medical/feeding/bedding/cleaning-products.

We love these guys, and want to keep doing this, so donations help a lot. Your love, kindness, time, patience and care for the animals you are adopting is what’s important. We get it.

Your donations are tax deductible and help us to continue our work of rescuing dogs and cats, puppies and kittens, from high-kill shelters and dangerous situations and placing them in loving homes. Thank you!

Falling in Love!

It can happen to any one of us. Falling in love with a cute, tiger-striped kitten with white paws and green eyes, just begging for your attention. Or maybe it's a gorgeous, tail-wagging beagle mix who couldn't be more friendly. One look, and the next thing you know, you're walking down the aisles of a pet supply store or pet boutique with your new pet in hand.

If you're like most of us, falling in love with a pet is easy. And no wonder! Sharing your home with a four-legged friend can be one of life's greatest joys. Dogs, cats, and other pets give us unconditional loyalty and acceptance. In addition to providing constant companionship, they even help relieve stress after a hard day's work and boost your state of mind.

Adopting a pet, though, is a big decision. Dogs and cats are living beings who require lots of time, money, and commitment - over 15 years in many cases. Pet guardianship can be rewarding, but only if the decision is completely thought through before adoption.
