Who we are
Tails of Courage is a Christian based national non-profit organization committed to helping our communities. 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 the heroes lost in the tragedy, the mission of the organization is to help as much as possible with various programs within the communities we serve. We welcome everyone, from all walks of life, all beliefs, all backgrounds, 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 even encourage children under the age of 18 to volunteer with the shelter dogs and cats. 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 CT Chapter is home to our animal shelter located at 39 Smith Street, Danbury, CT 06810. Our adoption hours are every day from 9:30 AM – 5:00 PM. You do not need an appointment. 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.
