A TAIL TO BE TOLD is a foster-based animal rescue located between Fredericksburg and Richmond, VA. We are dedicated to finding permanent families for homeless and abandoned animals who are living outside or in high-kill shelters or whose owners can no longer care for them. We provide loving foster homes until permanent, well-matched families can be found. We also serve the community through education and awareness on proper sterilization and responsible ownership and assist with Trap-Neuter-Return programs for community cats.

We are a fully incorporated, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with a volunteer-only staff.

Thank your for your generous Donations At this Year's Community Give!

We raised $2,745 for the animals! We will use the funds to provide for care (medical expenses, spay/neuter, micro-chipping, and food) until each animal is placed, and to fund our TNR program. Our long-term success is dependent your support, so we can't thank you enough!
