The Tailwaggers Foundation’s mission statement states that we only assist qualified rescue organizations. This means we cannot grant any assistance to individuals. We ask that only 501 (c) 3 nonprofit rescue organizations register with the Tailwaggers Foundation before applying for assistance. To register please fill out all sections of the form below. Any supporting documents such as adoption forms and letter from IRS with your 501 (c) 3 number may be emailed to:


    Does your organization make home inspections a mandatory procedure in the adoptions approval process?

    Does your organization offer foster care as an avenue for volunteering?

    If YES, do you have an application process that ensures that the applicant is qualified to foster?

    Please explain this process:

    In the event that an adopter decides not to keep the animal after the process is finalized, have you included as part of the adoption agreement that the animal must be returned to your organization?
