1.Please provide a description of your organization.
Tails foundation Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Our Mission is to help families care for their pets by providing programs and services, resources and education for optimal health and well-being for all pets.
As the population increases, there is a noticeable and growing need for pet care in our community. Due to unforeseen circumstances such as the loss of a job, medical issues, changes in housing or a lack of pet care education, people are often unable to care for their pets. That's how the quest began for the TAILS Foundation Inc and we need your help!
As a non-profit organization, TAILS Foundation Inc. relies on the sponsorship of local businesses like yours to provide support for programs and services such as Food4TAILS (a mobile pet food bank), RainbowTAILS (supporting end-of-life care for elderly pets)and TAILSAcademy (educating the community on basic pet care, training and nutrition).
2.How will the grant or sponsorship money be spent? Please be specific. We encourage you to provide us with a detailed list of the needs and amounts for consideration. Dollars awarded would be equally divided between our much needed community programs and to help with marketing and advertising to reach and help as many families as possible.
