Welcome to Pet Tails Rescue!

Pet Tails Rescue coordinates rescue services from shelters in southern states and places dogs and cats in loving, adoptive homes all over New England. Foster homes are utilized to care for the pets that are saved prior to their placement in their forever homes.


Pet Tails Rescue is committed to saving the lives of abandoned, surrendered or homeless dogs and cats by utilizing our shelter facility and a foster-based network of volunteers sharing the vision to place that life with a permanent, responsible, adoptive home. The Rescue is strongly committed to promoting awareness, education, and reform to existing animal welfare conditions and standards all resulting in a productive and positive “Rescue experience”.

How PTR Works

Pet Tails Rescue is an approved 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation in NH, registered with the NH Charitable Trust and an approved Rescue/Shelter with the NH Department of Agriculture.  Some of the many expenses associated with rescue work include; shelter pull fees, veterinary care, foster care reimbursement and transportation expenses. We are very fortunate to find support in our volunteer base, local businesses and dog and cat professional service providers of all kinds. Donations are sought and graciously accepted throughout the year and a volunteer Fundraising Committee further supports the Rescue as events can be coordinated. Our 501(c)(3) status also means that any donations made to the Rescue are tax deductible.
