We at Tall Tails have been brought to our knees by Hurricane Harvey. Though we managed to save all of the animals, we lost everything in the process and need your help to relocate and start over.
Tall Tails Animal Rescue rescues and rehabilitates sick, injured and pregnant dogs from the streets and shelters in and around Houston, TX. We take in the worst of the worst, those that most others won't, moving them from imminent danger to the safety of our facility. We nurse them back to health, teach them to be pets and find them forever homes all over the US and Canada.
With Hurricane Harvey and the opening of the floodgates to the north, Tall Tails received about four feet of water in less than 48 hours and we were forced to evacuate quickly. With a lot of help from a lot of different groups and individuals, over 140 animals were evacuated by boat. As the waters rose, conditions worsened and many people risked their lives to make sure all of the animals were safe. We managed to get all animals out safely, which was our main concern, but the house, both vehicles as well as all kennel assets and personal belongings were completely destroyed in the process. Everything from dog bedding to wood fencing and sheetrock has to be replaced.
The cleanup is ongoing but Tall Tails is now forced to relocate and build anew. We need your help to purchase 3-4 acres for our new facility. Once land is secured, we will break ground on a metal building that will house 35 climate controlled indoor/outdoor kennels, a cattery to satisfy the pickiest kitties, secure and muddy pig pen, a few stables to temporarily house and rehabilitate small to medium livestock, multiple play yards and all amenities necessary to accommodate the daily operation of a reputable animal rescue. The sooner we acquire the land, the sooner we can get set up to start saving animals again...but we are asking for your help to make that happen.
Please donate, if you can, and share this fundraiser for more to see. Thank you for all of the support through this very difficult time. With your help, we will be back better than before!
