Remember. Honor. Believe.
For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost. Luke 19:10
Triumph Over Tragedy
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.
We are entirely funded by donations and depend on volunteers. We allow and encourage children under the age of 18 to volunteer with the shelter dogs and cats. The shelter environment is designed specifically for children to participate in most aspects of volunteering. All children, regardless of age, may volunteer with Tails of Courage. *Children under 13 must have an adult accompany them. We have partnered with local schools for children to obtain their community service, and most importantly to learn about the care of animals. Families volunteer together.
Our animal shelter located at 39 Smith Street, Danbury, CT 06810. Our adoption hours are every day by appointment only. We are always happy to answer any questions about any of pur programs or adopting a new pet and will gladly provide any support you may need throughout the adoption process.
