Our Mission and Vision


Positive Tails is a non-profit organization founded in 2013, working in conjunction with VERG and other partner hospitals.

Our mission is to improve both animal and community welfare in New York City, in three ways: 1) We provide funding for lifesaving emergency veterinary care for those who can’t afford treatment, or for animals who are abandoned or abused. 2) We organize and hold an average of 9 veterinary and One Health Clinics for people who can’t afford or don’t have access to veterinary care for their animals. 3) We provide follow up care and spay/neuter services to help animals lead long, healthy lives, and to control the incidence of unwanted animals.

Our mission is centered around the belief that dogs and cats are part of our families, and we’re committed to helping to keep these families together.
