Adoption process is smooth, but there could be more staff. The other bad part is their phone service, you can hardly get someone on the other end to answer. The staff that are there are amazing though!! More...

I stopped by Tails today to drop off some bedding and some sheets and towels for the animals. Didn't stay long today though because they were cleaning out all the cages and didn't want to get in their way

I found my cat Beauty at tails. I wanted a rescue cat, as pets purchased at pet stores are frequently not healthy. Beauty had been spayed and had all her shots and was healthy and free of fleas or ear mites. It cost me over $100 oh, but she is so worth it! More...

Very busy so a little bit of a wait to have one on one with a dog. Very nice that you can see and walk by the dogs before waiting for a one on one.

This place is awesome!! For obvious reasons haha. The staff are friendly and so are the pets. Especially the doggos!! This place is a great atmosphere to be in if you and your friends are looking for something to do to pass time or if you simply have a love for animals like me.

Excellent nonprofit organization with a great mission. I've adopted two cats here already and they have become a part of my family. If you're ever feeling down, come to Tails and spend time with the animals (and maybe adopt some). It always makes me feel better. More...

Visiting tails was amazing. I went there with my sister to look at the pets available and they really do treat these animals with care. They have a few rooms where you can go in and interact with the cats for adoption. Very nice animal shelter experience. More...

I adopted an amazing dog from Tails but with that said I went into the shelter two days ago and was ignored not one hello, nothing. I was very interested in a cat but I can only try to get staff attention and be ignored for so long before I give up. I definitely love what tails is all about dont shop adopt but good luck getting their attention to even see an animal. More...

I volunteered at Tails until ill health forced me to leave. The animals were all treated well and lovingly cared for. I adopted Penny, fka Tahnee, who had come from Oklahoma. Her foster mom, Lori Viericki, treated her with such kindness, she is an amazing pet. I am so glad I adopted from them. More...

We rescued our kitty this past Sunday. The lobby was FULL of potential adopters which told me that we were in the right place. The staff is so friendly, helpful and patient! The facility is VERY well maintained. We are so happy with our new family member, and plan to come back when we are ready for a puppy! More...

Adopted a 5 year old pit (Finnegan) and 2 years later, adopted 2 month old Bailey. Both are great dogs, smart and well behaved. Even did the puppy/adolescence class with Bailey to teach her new commands and skills. TAILS has always been the 1st place we look when it came to adopting a dog. Traci, Lauren and the staff were huge in helping us find a good companion for Finnegan. Took a few tries but Bailey worked out really well. Now they're inseparable and couldn't be happier. More...

My kids and went to Tails to drop off some donations. My daughter had a lemonade stand and was able to raise some money to buy a few items. We spent time with all the cats and some of the dogs that needed extra loving that day. Thank you Tails for what you do for these animals! More...

I adopted Ross from here and I find their services to be very informational and helpful and he is adjusting very well and he gets along with my 2 year old cat very well and the introduction with my sisters 8-9 year old lab mix went off with out a hitch and unlike the other places I looked at for two years straight and all the other places I looked at had a week to two week waiting period and I heard nothing from them at all then I went surfing on petfinder and found my waling companion and this place answered all my questions via e-mail and gave me detailed actions to take with my new furry friend and I would like to thank them for letting adopt from them and if there are people like me out there I highly recommend Tails Humane Society to get your next furry friend!

I adopted an adorable senior Pomeranian last week. The staff there and the volunteer folks are all so helpful and positive. This receptionist was juggling 3 to 4 families that were meeting pets, as well as tending to three adoptions. Yes it took awhile to get through the paperwork and process, but I wouldn't expect anything less in any process. I adopted from an agency north, that was very slack, and my pet came home filthy. Not at Tails! Clean, smelling fresh and healthy! More...

My husband and I recently adopted our first puppy,Marshall, together and everyone at TAILS was great. They were helpful and patient. Willing to help and answer questions we had. Even though it was a busy day we didn't have much of a wait time while going through the adoption. It was so great to bring him home the same day. Marshall is a great fit to our family and we couldn't be happier. More...

My sister recommended this Tails as she has adopted some dogs from here. We arrived on a busy Sunday and found the place to exceed expectations. It was clean, well-staffed with patient, thorough workers. All the animals available to view and visit seemed well cared for. Cages and pens were clean and animals didn't look distressed. Adoption process was fair. They took time to review our application to make sure we were a good fit for the animal we were interested in.
Having done that, everything fell into place rather quickly. Staff was knowledgeable about our animal and answered all our questions. Well done, Tails! We will recommend you to all our friends!

I went to college in DeKalb, so I've been familiar of Tails for more than 10 years. Only recently did I have the experience of adopting from Tails. My fiance and I are so thankful to Tails for helping us find our dog Millie. It was obvious she was well cared for and the volunteers and staff truly care for the dogs. This Facebook Page is also a tremendously good resource as my friend actually found our Millie on one of their posts. We called immediately and were lucky enough to get to meet her and bring her home. She has brought so much joy to our lives that we will forever be indebted to Tails for bringing her into our lives. Thank you, Tails, for all that you do for these animals and the community! More...

Got my sweet kitty oliver from them � it was a quick and easy process. I dont know what i would do if i wasnt able to adopt him, he’s my whole entire world! I love how laid back they are. No need to show ID and sign seven papers just to meet and see pets. Also no “tour guide”. Its far more natural, to freely walk in from room to room. Also the adoptions themselves are very easy, and not too invasive, which i believe is beneficial for finding animals homes. Most people will give up and go to petland if they have to jump thru hoops. This place is my all time favorite shelter, and im so glad i moved to dekalb and found it � thanks for all you guys do in our community. More...

I love the animals there! I also like what Tails is all about, it’s just some of the volunteers didn’t seem to care about my interest, one even flat out ignored me when I asked a dogs age. So again love the place but some of the staff needs a bit more pep! More...

We've loved and recommended Tails for years and finally have been able to get our own pets - so the first one of course had to come from here and our new kitten is adorable! Their staff remembered us from a previous visit, made the adoption super simple, and gave us a ton of recommendations before we left. Highly recommend supporting, adopting, and volunteering here.

The care and committment in finding these animals their forever homes is quite evident in the way the staff and volunteers interact with the animals and the potential adopters. The place smells clean, cages are well taken care of daily. There is often a line of potential adopters waiting to meet their new companion (esp on weekends) as visiting space is limited but most people are patient and understanding. They offer training classes and private training services. More...

Super professional and friendly staff/voulenteers, you can tell they care about the animals there and try to help as much as possible. It might take a while to get invidual help, but when you see how the staff rushes around and takes care of their animals you can really appreciate all they do and the love and passion they have for pets. They also give you a free vet check up for your new buddy.As far I know they have Dogs, Cats, Birds, and small animals (bunnies and rodents) but no reptiles. Pictured is our little man who we adopted in great health from Tails. More...

They do a wonderful job of taking care of animals until they find a furever home. It may take them a while to answer the phone or help you at the desk, but it's because they're trying to give everyone the best help they can to make sure each animal goes to the right home.

I went to Tails looking to adopt another cat since I had to put mine down after going into heart failure due to a blood clot. I went to PAWS in Cherry Valley and the lady there was rude and snobby and did not care to let me get a cat. When I arrived at Tails they were very helpful and gave me plenty of information on the cat I wanted to get. I brought her home after 1/2 hour of me telling them I would like to adopt her. Great experience. Thank you More...

This is good for the heart and soul especially when you are with individuals that really benefit from a simple visit. Just waiting for the right time to adopt from here and support their operation. The doggie day care looks like it’s run well too. More...
