Community Minute: Providing loving homes for rescued cats and kittens

Play associated audio

Tails High is a cat rescue and adoption organization founded and staffed by compassionate volunteers who find joy in placing stray, abandoned, or homeless cats and kittens in permanent loving homes. The organization helps both rescued cats and kittens and their human families by providing wonderful cats to people looking for a sympathetic ear and a soft purr. Cats are placed in a network of foster homes to encourage socialization. Tails High provides a Foster-to-Adopt program, designed to allow time for potential adopters to foster a cat or kitten in their home with their family before completing the adoption process. All cats and kittens have tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV, are current on their vaccinations, and have been spayed or neutered to prevent owners from incurring any vet bills for the first year.
