Our Featured Pet...

Our featured pet of the week is Juliette!! Juliette is a wonderfully sweet girl, she's very gentle and loving and can't wait to get into her forever home. She was found emanciated and lost out in the middle of nowhere. After lots of loving care, and gentle petting, she's coming out of her shell.

She adores kids, and gets along with playful gentle dogs. She likes to chase squirrels and I'm not so sure a cat wouldn't be mistaken for a squirrel so it would be better for her not to be in a cat home. She would probably be okay with an older cat that doesn't run, but would need CLOSELY supervised for a while when she first moves to her home. She loves to sit near you and be petted, she's housetrained and waiting for her very own house and bed. Juliette would be a great dog for someone that enjoys walking or hiking or even running. She has endless energy on walks, but settles down when in the house.

Do you have time to walk or run Juliette? It would make her day the most wonderful day everyday to have someone to love her and take her for walks.


Worthy Tails Animal Rescue is a new rescue, but it's foster homes are quite experienced! We work very hard on saving as many as we can, but yet not compromising the quality of care that each foster home provides for each dog or puppy. Our goal is to place healthy dogs and puppies into our adopters home, but yet be honest if any issues need to be addressed (i.e. seperation anxiety, food aggression, fearfulness, etc). In our years of experience, there is a home for every dog, but some dogs just take a lot longer in finding that right home, yet worth every effort that is taken! We thank you for considering our animals, but our animals thank you even more!!

Who We Are

We are a non-profit rescue groups that relies solely on adoption fees and private donations to provide the proper vetting for each one of our animals. Our goal is to place our animals in loving "furever" homes to live out the remainder of their lives. Some have many years to give to their new homes and sadly, some have just a few. Please consider giving an older dog a place to call his own as older dogs are found way too often in shelters. It is so sad for us to think that these dogs are being turned into shelters because they are being replaced by puppies or may have health issues. If you have a flexible work schedule and can "pop" home often, maybe consider a puppy. Puppies require a lot of care and attention to properly train them. When thinking about bringing a new pet into your home, please consider your lifestyle and what pet would be best suited for you and for them.

Adopting a friend

Considering on adopting a friend? That's great!! We require a completed application in order to meet our precious pets. I know, all the paperwork and all the waiting! We require completed applications as this is proof to us that you are quite serious about adoption and ready to make the commitment. We are all volunteers and do animal rescue in our spare time, so we would rather weed out those who are "just looking". Processing applications take time and we don't mind processing applications for our animals, but we don't want to take time away from our fosters animals if we don't have to. We normally have applicants approved in less than a week as we are a small rescue and prefer to stay that way. We know we can't save as many animals, but we are more focused on quality care for our animals and to our adopters. If you are interested in one of our animals, just go to our website at www.worthytails.rescuegroups.org; click on "online forms" and then to "adoption application". If you have any questions or problems with the application, please send an e-mail to worthytailsrescue@comcast.net.

Come Visit Us!

We are not a shelter! The majority of our pets are in private foster homes and require completed and approved applications to meet our pets. Periodically, we are forced to place a dog into a local kennel until a foster home opens up for placement. Whether a dog is in foster home or kennel, we require a completed application and will gladly make arrangements for you to meet the pet in which you are interested!
