    About Us                                                                                                                                   
  • One Tail at a Time Rescue, Inc. is a registered approved non-profit rescue with the state of MA.  We are a 100% volunteer based organization.  One Tail at a Time rescues dogs and puppies from high-kill shelters mostly in the rural south 
    because that's where help is needed most.   All of our rescued dogs are placed in volunteer foster homes until they find
    their forever homes.  We follow strict guidelines to ensure our animals are healthy.  Every dog or puppy arrives with a health 
    certificate from the state they originate.  Upon arrival to MA they are examined by a veterinarian, isolated for 48-hours, and 
    issued a MA health certificate.  Immunizations are updated per veterinary protocol, dogs are microchipped and spayed or 
    neutered prior to adoption. (No dog or puppy will be placed prior to being altered, so please don't ask!)  Dogs are deflead and dewormed, and any medical condition identified prior to or upon arrival is checked and treated by a licensed veterinarian. 
    Dogs older than age 6 months are heartworm tested (and negative).  Adopted pets should have a vet checkup with your own 
    vet within 10 days of adoption.  We strive to adopt dogs who are healthy, happy, and friendly - and ready to go to their new homes without added expense to adoptive families.  An adoption fee is required to pay for costs incurred and to continue rescue efforts.
