About Us


We are an amazing team of volunteers who are committed to helping the animals in our community.  We focus on the "broke" animals .  The sick, injured, pregnant, too young, or too shy to be adopted.  We take action to help these animals get better, get socialized, get healed, so they can be adopted into loving homes.  

We are their voice.

Our History

This is Tucker the day I picked him up. The picture says it all.

Several years ago,  I felt the need to help the animals in the community, by getting involved in animal rescue.  Some were hospice,  and needed a soft place to live out the remainder of their lives. Some needed time in foster homes, where they could decompress, heal, be socialized, etc.  I was fortunate enough to foster for a local rescue, for several years, and learn what it takes to help these animals.   I am now rescuing and fostering  animals with my own rescue, 

BrokeTail Rescue & Sanctuary

This is where I can help the community, and fulfill my passion to rehabilitate animals, and have dogs for adoption, so they can get the care they need, and find loving homes.

Animals Are Our Mission

This is Tucker now.  So happy and full of life.

We are focused on making the most positive effort that we can. Our  members and volunteers provide the momentum that helps us do good work.  With others in the community, (our donators, followers, and volunteers), we are able take actions that make a long-lasting  difference with the animals and the community.  

The picture above, to the left, shows Tucker the day I picked him up at the shelter.  The picture to the right, shows Tucker 2 years later.  His wounds are healed and his coat has improved, as well as his spirit.  

Adoptable Animals

All of our animals that are adopted out, are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and on flea/tick medication.  Please visit www.Adoptapet.com, www.Petharbor.com, and www.Petfinder.com, to view the dogs we have for adoption.
