Donate in Honor or Memory
Making a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one is a special way to celebrate the life of a loved one or pet.
Your donation will help the next dog in need, and make it possible for more lives to be saved, by providing the medical care, vaccinations, and spay/neuter surgeries for the dogs who need it most.

Help us Grow --- Support our Capital Campaign!
One Tail at a Time has announced a 2-phase capital campaign (“OTAT Cooperative”) that will add 4 new facilities to our thriving adoption center in Bucktown: The Rudy Stewart Training & Behavior Center, our mobile adoption truck (“mOTAT”), The Brian & Sheri Qualizza Isolation Center, and The Ellis Veterinary Clinic.
Your donation will increase how many animals One Tail at a Time can rescue, care for, and adopt to loving homes. For naming rights and sponsorship opportunities, visit onetail.org/cooperative.
Medical Mutts are One Tail at a Time foster dogs and cats in the greatest need of costly medical procedures, treatment, and care. Each month features a new Medical Mutt and the latest updates on their journey to adoption.
Your donation will support the care of this month’s medical mutt and more homeless dogs and cats in need!
