Triumph Over Tragedy

 . . .For the Son of Man came to seek and save the lost . . .

Luke 19:10


Our Mission

We believe that rescue is about helping people just as much as helping animals. Tails of Courage was founded in 2009, by a survivor of the World Trade Center attacks in New York City on September 11th, 2001.  In an effort to honor those lost in the tragedy, the mission of the organization is to teach others how to overcome hardships and to find their second chance. We accomplish this through the use of animal based programs designed specifically toward those goals.  Beyond animal rescue and adoption, we offer programs for Veterans, Seniors, Children, Special Needs, and more.  We believe in the love of God almighty.  We welcome everyone, from all walks of life, all beliefs, all backgrounds.  We celebrate diversity, and want to have a positive impact on the world around us.  



“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.”

-Mark Twain

Hi, I’m Benjamin and I am the shelter’s longest term pet at the moment.  I have great puppy energy and love everyone I meet.  I am a little over a year old, fixed, microchipped, up to date on vaccines.  I am also part of the Heroic Paws program so if you’re a Service Member or a Veteran, I’m the dog for you!
