One Tail at a Time is a no-kill rescue. Our animals are either housed in volunteer foster homes or at our Adoption Center and can be introduced to approved potential adopters who complete an adoption survey.
Adoption fees are $300 for puppies under 6 months, $250 for adult dogs, and $150 for dogs over 7 years old. Senior people that adopt senior dogs will get a special rate of $100. This includes spay/neuter, microchip, all vaccines and a wellness exam.
For more information on an adoptable dog, contact the Adoption Counselor listed in each dog’s profile, or email AnnaOTAT@gmail.com.
Sammy can be a bit shy at first and (sadly) sometimes cowers when you first go to pet him, but within moments he's your best friends and ready for some serious snuggles sessions. In addition to being lovely with people, he also seems to like the company of other dogs and can certainly go to a forever home with other friendly pets.
Though Sammy does sometimes mark his territory in new situations (we're hoping his neuter on 5/26 remedies that!), he otherwise seems to be housebroken and has a nice energy level too. Sammy is friendly with people of all ages but we'd like to find him a home with kiddos age 10+ just since he can be a little timid at first and we want to make sure he feels safe and secure!
This cutie is approximately 3 years old, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and will be neutered and microchippped. His adoption fee is $250 and as of 5/27 he'll be a resident of our Adoption Center! You can come on by during open hours to meet him and if you'd like to be preapproved for adoption our application can be accessed here: Apply Now
Betty Lou is not a big fan of being alone and though she has made big progress in the week she has been in foster (day one she cried like crazy when she was alone and that has greatly diminished), she'd still thrive most either in a single family home or with someone who works from home/is home a fair amount.
This peach is now spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. She is unfortunately heartworm positive but the rescue will be covering the cost of her treatment so she can certainly join her forever home at any time! Her adoption fee is $250 and as of 5/26 she'll be a resident of our Adoption Center. If you'd like to be preapproved for adoption, you can access our survey here: Apply Now
This gem of a dog is also well on her way to being housebroken and has even started to let her foster family know when it's time for a potty break. Though we aren't sure of her exact mix, we believe she is a shepherd/terrier mix and we *know* she's going to be a lovely addition for some lucky family.
Lem is vaccinated and dewormed and will be spayed and microchipped before scooting over to our Adoption Center where she'll be available as of 5/28. Her adoption fee is $300 and if you'd like to get preapproved for adoption you can access our survey here: Apply Now
Francie is perfectly potty trained and can go long periods (8 hours) without having to use the bathroom so she could join a home with folks who work traditional hours and would likely not be in need of a dog walker. She really is just a loving and loyal companion who deserves to go to the best and most loving home ever!
This doll is about 2 years old, around 45 lbs and is now spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. She also was recently groomed as she was quite matted when she first joined the rescue; she looks cute now but will be even more gorgeous once her coat grows out!

He is now in foster with one of our wonderful volunteers and she just cannot say enough good things about what a lovely dog this approximately 15 lb pooch is. He is house trained, a great apartment dog, good in his crate after a few minutes, is treat motivated, good on leash, great with other dogs, loves walks, and is excited to explore! Even more lovely, he is super duper affectionate and so amazingly sweet! He loves, loves, loves cuddles and hanging out with his humans. Though he'd prefer to be with people, he doesn't seem to have any separation issues and is a good boy while his foster mom is at work. Every once in a while he can display a little guarding behavior over certain items and though rare and very manageable in an adult home, we're looking for a forever home without kiddos under 12 for this little dude.
Our vet believes Luke is about 8 years old and he is now neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $150 and our adoption survey can be accessed here: Apply Now
Archer enjoys a fair amount of activity and would either love a yard to romp around in, an owner who enjoys long walks, or a doggie daycare to attend and pal around with some buddies. However once his energy is out of his system he's also happy to settle in for snuggle time and is a cuddle expert. This handsome fellow is perfectly crate trained but is still perfecting his potty habits when not crated; his foster family can leave him crated for good chunks of time and he never has a mess in his kennel but does need fairly frequent potty breaks at this point when he's out and playing/lounging around with the fam.
Archer is now neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $250 and our adoption survey is available here: Apply Now
At just around 1.5 years old herself, Betsy is friendly with everyone she meets, loves other dogs, and is currently sharing her foster home with a baby (of the human variety!) so she's be a great fit for a home with other pets/children.
Betsy is now about 40 lbs and has been vaccinated and dewormed; she'll be spayed and microchipped on 5/26. Her adoption fee is $250 and you can access our survey here: Apply Now
This cutie is housebroken and has nice household manners too. She's also immediately engaging and sweet with everyone she meets and, though she has her playful moments, has a nice non-hyper energy level.
She's now spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250 and she's going to make some lucky family very happy for years to come! If interested, you can access our adoption survey here: Apply Now
Some of Tobi's favorite things including cuddling, lounging around, and looking out the window during car rides. This little guy found himself at a shelter when his family no longer had the time for him (even though he's a low maintenance guy!) but they reported that he had lovely household behavior and was left alone during the day with free roam of the house and never had any issues.
Though the behavior never manifested in a home environment, on Tobi's behavioral assessment at the shelter he did find his food bowl valuable and got a little grumbly with the assess-a-hand device. This seems to be situational and we don't anticipate it showing up once adopted, but to err on the side of caution we're looking for a home with kids age 10+.
This cute patoot is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. We'll be sure to get more photos of him soon too because he is cute, cute, cute! Tobi's adoption fee is $150 and you an access our survey here: Apply Now
Lottie is very social, outgoing, and engaging. However she also is currently a mouthy kiddo who tries to communicate her needs through nipping/jumping to get attention. She is working with our trainer and we have no doubt she'll move beyond this phase with proper training and time, but currently she's best suited for an adult home who is willing to continue working with her. Sufficient exercise is key for this cutie--we know "a tired dog is a well behaved dog" may be cliche, but it's so true and we've found that going to daycare a couple days per week helps Lottie immensely.
Lottie is wonderful in her crate and housebroken. She is also now spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $250 but half of that will be reimbursed upon completion of a training class. You can email AnnaOTAT@gmail.com with questions or access our adoption survey here: Apply Now
Both these sweet boys love people of all ages and would be great additions to most loving homes. Though Sage loves is buddy Yoshi, he isn't too fond of living with other dogs so they'll do best as the only pups in their new forever home.
Sage is an approximately 11 year old guy but he's still got plenty of spunk and is really sweet and engaging with everyone he meets. He recently had surgery for bladder stones but has bounced back swimmingly and is otherwise healthy. Yoshi is about 10 years old and is blind though navigates very well and recently had a senior blood panel which came back with flying colors.
Yoshi and Sage are well adjusted boys who are friendly with everyone they meet, enjoy but scratches, snuggling on the couch, and, heck, if you have a fireplace for them to snooze by then bonus!
They're both neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. Their adoption fee is $150 for the pair and you can access our survey here: Apply Now
This gorgeous boy is about 10 months old, neutered, heartworm tested, vaccinated, dewormed, and microchipped. He'd do great in a forever home with or without other dogs and also seems to enjoy people of all ages. His adoption fee is $250 and you can access our adoption survey here: Apply Now
Coco is currently being treated for a bacterial skin infection (which is resolving), and stoically wears his e-collar without complaint. He is a perfect, laid back dog, perfect for a family or owner looking for a low maintenance kind of guy! Coco is about 4 years old and currently weighs around 75 lbs but should lose about 10 lbs.
He is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped and his adoption fee is $250. Our adoption survey can be accessed here: Apply Now
This little mush mouth is vaccinated, heartworm tested, neutered, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $250 and we'd love to line up a time for you to meet him! You can email AnnaOTAT@gmail.com with any questions and access our adoption survey here: Apply Now
Moosette is is perfectly fine passing other dogs on walks and even hangs out with her neighbors pups from time to time but will likely thrive most as the only pooch in her forever home. Sometimes Moosie is a little tentative with new people--just seems to depend on the person--so though we know she'll love and bond wonderfully with her forever family, she'll thrive most in an adult home.
When Moosie first joined the rescue she had terrible chronic ear infections and ultimately her veterinarian and surgeon decided ear canal ablation surgery would be in her best interest. So far she has had surgery for one ear and is feeling so much happier and less painful! She'll be receiving her second surgery in May but can certainly meet potential adopters in the interim.

Here at the Adoption Center, Miguel loves playing fetch, romping after squeaky toys, playing with his best dog friend Dexter, and cuddling with/smooching on the volunteers. Though he's a perfect angel in his kennel here (totally crate trained/housebroken) he did display some separation anxiety issues when in a foster home so he'd love to join a home where someone is often home and/or where he can go to daycare during the work day.
In addition to loving people, Miguel is also good with other dogs and can certainly join a forever home with other social dogs so long as they're a good match for his play style. Miguel is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. One of his biggest fans has sponsored his adoption fee so now you can save that money for toys and treats!

This lovely lady is about 9 years old and weighs 45 lbs so she's a nice medium size well suited for city or suburban living. Because of her gentle spirit, she can join just about any loving family and would be just fine sharing her home with other pets, kids, you name it.
Possum is vaccinated and will be spayed and microchipped prior to adoption. She is currently being treated for heartworm but can join her new family at any time as the rescue will continue to pay for her treatment even if she's adopted prior to completing it. She also recently had an echocardiogram which confirmed she has a valve issue with her heart but thankfully is doing great, does not need any medication, and our vet simply recommends that she get echocardiograms twice/year for monitoring.

Olive is around 12 years old but she's a healthy girl and our vet feels she could easily have many years ahead of her.

Despite the condition he came to us in, KC has no medical issues and will just need a home that is dedicated to helping him maintain his weight loss and enjoy his now healthy lifestyle!
Kale is a spirited, typical Beagle who is full of sass and Beagle howls. He's super friendly with people, great with other dogs and likes to spend time outside. His stubborness comes out when he doesn't want to do something, so we would like to place him with an experienced owner who will give him boundaries without pushing him. He's a *great* dog and deserves only the best. Kale isn't a big fan of kids but is great with other dogs, cats, and adults. Kale loves to be around people and when left alone that Beagle howl is in full effect; because of that, we are looking for a single family home for this sweet guy.
We believe Kale is 8-9 years old. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped heartworm tested, and recently had a dental. One of his adoring fans sponsored his adoption fee so you can save that money for toys and healthy treats.

In addition to loving all humans (no preference between men and women with this guy!) Dozer was also a playgroup rockstar at the shelter we welcomed him from and though he may thrive most as the only dog in his forever home, he does enjoy romping with well matched buddies.
Prior to moving to the Adoption Center, this gorgeous boy was in a foster home where he was totally housebroken and crate trained and though he can be a bit of a bull in a china shop, he does chill out and love cuddling.
This gem is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $250 and you can email AnnaOTAT@gmail.com for more info or access our adoption survey here: Apply Now
