Every dog has a tail to tell!

aka Desert Tails Shelter

Scottsdale, AZ


Our purpose is to rescue rehabilitate, mend, and find homeless dogs new forever homes. We take in strays, owner surrenders, and pound animals. These animals are often neglected, at the risk of being euthanized, or ready to be turned over to the pound. We build a bond with every pet that comes through our door and they do not leave until in their next FOREVER home. We have a facility that was built by Military veterans and is 100% donation and fundraiser supported. We truly need and appreciate help a little support to help us through the consistent "ruff" times ahead.
