High Tails Animal Rescue, NFP is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that operates as a licensed dog and cat rescue. We are both volunteer-run and foster-based serving the Greater Chicagoland area and Northern Suburbs of Illinois. High Tails is not breed or age-specific; our organization is dedicated to rescuing dogs and cats in need of a permanent home. We rescue primarily from animal controls, animal shelters, and euthanasia lists, and assist with local strays. High Tails is also committed to advancing the cause of animal welfare by being an educational resource for pet owners to promote responsible pet ownership. To read our full mission statement, please view our About page on our website.
Since we are a foster-based rescue, please submit our adoption application if you are interested in meeting and adopting an animal. For adoption events, follow us on social media to know when and where we are hosting. As a 100% volunteer-run and foster-based organization, we are always in need of volunteers and foster families!
The High Tails team welcomes you to reach out with any questions and to view our website to donate and apply to adopt, foster, or volunteer with us today.
