Adopting a Pet

Enjoying unconditional love is one of the greatest joys of life and there is no better place than through the love of an animal. The adoption process is one that benefits both the animal and the adopter by adding a companion to your life that will always love you.

MakING a Donation

Traveling Tails is supported through your donations where 100% of the donation goes to the benefit of the animals. All of the TTDR team is volunteer-based and focused on finding good homes for animals that would never know the comfort of daily meals, and a roof over their heads.

Spay & Neuter

We take the pet population seriously and all of the animals adopted through TTDR are spayed and neutered as part of the adoption requirements. Donations to the rescue go to help cover these fees for each animal.

Nugget from Tennessee

Nugget was found abandoned in a driveway, with a serious UTI, dehydrated, and in shock in freezing winter temperatures. The TTDR team worked hard to help Nugget make it back to health. After weeks of nursing Nugget to get him healthy and strong he found his forever home with Mark.
