Tails of Courage has also partnered with local organizations in an effort to expand our programs and volunteer services.  #tocspecialforces is for individuals with disabilities.  If you are classified or diagnosed, and currently partnered with one of these organizations, or are seeking services to partner and volunteer, please contact us at  We will assess whether an individual may volunteer without the aid of a counselor, or seek the services of one of these organizations to provide a counselor who will enable you to volunteer at the shelter.

We also offer employment screening opportunities at the shelter.  If you qualify, these organizations will assess your abilities and partner you with one of our staff for approximately 40 hours of on the job training and assessment which can then be attached to your resume and potentially help locate an employment match!
