Tails Untold made another donation

Tails Untold is so pleased to announce that we made another donation.  Our donation went to the Sean Casey Animal Rescue.  Our first encounter with this no-kill organization was at an event in Washington Square Park in NYC.  They have a wonderful dedicated staff and volunteers that work very hard to find homes for homeless animals.

Here is their mission statement.  You can also go to to read more about this wonderful Animal Rescue Organization.


The purpose of this endeavor is to aid unfortunate animals in the interest of a higher quality of life. We take in rescued, confiscated, neglected, injured, ill,
unmanageable, or otherwise unwanted animals from private owners, zoos, shelters, and other public  organizations. These animals are cared for, and/or rehabilitated to the best of our ability and means  until which time they can be found healthy, happy homes – whether it be through adoption to qualified candidates or legally released into habitats suitable to the specific species in conjunction with licensed wildlife rehabilitators.”

Spotlight on Animal Advocacy – North Shore Animal League



Tails Untold® donates a percentage of the sale of every beautifully illustrated, personalized book it sells to an animal shelter, animal rescue, pet adoption or other pet advocacy group. We’d like to let you know about these great organizations and how you can help support them. One of our first donations was made to North Shore Animal League, which is the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization and a leader in the no-kill movement, rescuing and rehabilitating animals instead of euthanizing them. They have been leaders in promoting acceptance of mixed breed animals and have built a national network of shelters and rescues. Animals from all over the country end up at North Shore Animal League, which in turn tries to find permanent homes for them. We are fortunate to have an animal rescue resource like North Shore Animal League in the New York area, and we look forward to providing more support in the future.

Help your local shelter win $100,000 and help more animals find homes

The ASPCA is sponsoring a three-month competition which challenges 49 shelters from 33 states and territories across the United States to increase lives saved in order to win some of the $300,000 in ASPCA prize grants, including a grand prize of $100,000. Shelters have one more month to save more animals for a chance to win much-needed funds.

During the first weeks of the challeng, many shelters stayed open around the clock for 24-hour adoption events, offered unique promotions and discounts on adoption fees, and more.

The shelter with the largest increase in animals saved will win a $100,000 grant. The agency that gets the most community members involved in saving animals will win a $25,000 grant, and those organizations that do the best in their regions will be eligible for between $5,000 and $25,000 in grants.

Taking Care of Your Pet During Hurricane Season

Upstate Hurricane Irene

Since Hurricane season is still with us, we felt that this information is very important for any “named” hurricane.

Hurricane Irene hits Upstate
Pets and Hurricane Irene

Natural disasters often force pet owners to make difficult choices about leaving behind beloved pets, but a couple of articles we noticed while preparing for Hurricane Irene showed that pets are taken into consideration by government officials. The Los Angeles Times reported that shelters in Atlantic City were allowing evacuees to bring their pets with them.

The ASPCA deploys “pet responders’ during natural emergencies and provides this helpful checklist for pet owners facing emergencies:

  • Bring pets indoors at the first sign of the storm. Animals can become disoriented and wander away from home during a disaster.
  • Arrange a safe haven for yourself and your pets in the event of evacuation. Do not leave pets behind.
  • Store an emergency kit—with items such as pet food, bottled water, medical records, a blanket, a flashlight and leashes—as close to an exit as possible.
  • Make sure all pets wear collars and tags with up-to-date identification.
  • Affix a rescue alert sticker to your front door or window to let rescuers know that there are pets inside your home.
  • Choose a designated caregiver to take care of your pet in the event you are unable to do so.

We hope all of our pet friends made it through Hurricane Irene safely. It’s good to keep the ASPCA tips in mind, especially since hurricane season is only half over!
