Tail to Paw Animal Support works to ensure that no companion animal goes without food, supplies or medical needs or has to be abandoned on the streets or  at a shelter due to their owner’s poverty level or housing status.

Our volunteers provide support through education, resources and referrals so that no animal is left behind and no human is left alone.

     Smudge wandered out of his home and was lost for a week from his former owner.  During that time, a group of kids set an oil fire and threw Smudge into it, causing permanent damage to his back paws and singeing his fur from the tip of his tail to the tip of his paws.

     He underwent months of treatment and TLC at his home with his owner who was aided by the CEO/Founder of Tail To Paw.  Upon his owners death, Smudge became a Forever Cat with Tail To Paw with a promise to continue his care and love.

     Smudge needs daily medication, quarterly injections, special diet food for his colon disease and proper grooming and care of his back paws.  

     He is the reason we became Tail To Paw Animal Support.
