FREE REUSABLE TOTE BAG WITH $25 DONATION
During busy intake on Friday, July 24, 2020, a neighbor in the area walked to our parking lot with a kitten trotting behind her. She did not know where the kitten came from. She was scared he would get hit by a car. The kitten came running to our front door and into the center.
The kitty had to be put in a cat cage while we continued our day, and while we made calls to try to place the kitten in a foster or shelter; Marc also posted on Facebook. Well, everywhere was full, so we decided he could stay for the weekend at Chateau Tails of Hope. Mark decided to name him Neil Catrick Harris (after first considering Hairy Pawter).
The intake/wellness room was transformed into kitty haven for the weekend. I have been coming into play with him, feed him, etc. He purrs non-stop, likes to play and gives lots of kisses.
While I was here Friday night, I saw our next door neighbors outside. I walked up to just explain the situation and ask them if they by any chance knew where this kitten came from; they did not. About 20 minutes later, the doorbell rang at TOH. It was the neighbor again. He said his he and his girlfriend can't say no. So.....
Our neighbors are adopting the kitty! This kitty will join a wonderful cat-friendly dog named Murphy and another black cat (named Oliver or Oscar, sorry I forget which).
The kitty is on our schedule for Monday for tests, vaccines, and neuter after which he will go to his new home.

Make Independence Day safe and fun for you and your pets by taking steps to protect them. Here are some tips to help keep your four-legged loved ones safe:
While many people enjoy the 4th of July firework festivities, our furry animal companions prefer a quiet time at home. Fireworks are no fun for some pets! The loud noises can frighten dogs and cats, causing them to escape their homes or yard in an attempt to look for safety.
The best way to keep your pets safe is to make sure they stay indoors, in an enclosed room or familiar crate with some of their favorite toys, and play soothing and calming music. If you do allow your pet outside, be sure that your gates or fence are secure or that your pet stays on a leash.
Make sure your pet has up-to-date identification. If your pet escapes and becomes lost, a collar or harness with a current license and/or ID tag on it and a microchip that is registered with your contact information, will help reunite you with your furry family member right away!
Even if your pet does not seem obviously upset by fireworks, they can still cause harm to our animal friends. You can prevent potential burns, injuries, or possible ingestion of fireworks, which can be fatal for pets, by keeping out of the vicinity of fireworks and asking friends and neighbors to avoid using them.

Thank you for visiting Tails of Hope! We are in the process of adding to our medical staff. Unfortunately, this means we are unable to set appointments at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience. Watch to meet the new team members when we resume care of our animal friends.
Earlier this week, the Governor of Pennsylvania extended the order for "non-essential businesses" to be closed from 2 weeks to indefinitely. Due to this change, we now expect to be closed until the beginning of May.
This means that the Vaccine Clinic we had scheduled for Sunday April the 19th is cancelled. We will reschedule the event at a later time once we are back in operation.
We will continue to give updates here and on our Facebook page as they become available. We will also still be checking the phones at the clinic while we are closed.
Thank you and stay safe.
Due to the evolving situation surrounding the COVID-19 Virus, and Governor Wolf’s order for “non-essential businesses” to close for a 2 week period to combat the virus, the clinic will be closed to the public until at least the first week of April.
We will be keeping the public up to date through our Facebook account and this web page. We will also be periodically checking the phones while the clinic is closed. We will answer any voice mails as we get them. We thank you for your patience.
We plan on being back to business as usual as soon as we possibly can.
Thank you for your support and your understanding. Take care and stay safe!
This is a great way to help a friend or family member cover the cost of getting their pet fixed. This will help the animals live happy and healthier lives and also help reduce the animal overpopulation problem.
Gift certificates can be purchases in any amount.
Gift certificates are available for purchase at the clinic, Monday through Thursday 9 am to 4 pm. We accept cash and credit/debit cards as payment.
You can also purchase gift certificates if you see us out in the community. We can only accept cash as payment at these events.
