Positive Tails is a registered non-for-profit 501©3 public charity currently dedicated to helping the animals of New York. Founded in 2012 in conjunction with the Veterinary Emergency and Referral Group of Brooklyn (VERG), Positive Tails will provide grants to assist animals in three distinct ways – to fight animal abuse, help displaced animals and the over-population of dogs and cats, and to provide support to individuals and families who cannot afford veterinary emergency or illness care for their companion animals.
Positive Tails is not a rescue organization, but a group dedicated to providing critical assistance to animals and people in-need. While we do work in conjunction with rescue groups in the city and support their missions, our focus is on providing medical treatment and helping people stay with their pets. We will work hard to lessen the occurrence of “economic euthanasia”, because we know how important pets are to people’s lives and vice versa. We want all animals to live out their doggie years and nine lives healthy and pain free with a loving family to call their own.
Because Positive Tails is a non-profit organization, we rely solely on donations to continue our mission of providing access to life saving veterinary care and to enhance and preserve the quality of life for the animals and people we help. Please join us in becoming a Positive Tails Story Teller for animals!
