A Very Special Tribute


We'd like to pay a special tribute to Racey (RIP) the inspiration behind Tails To Freedom Inc. & Lucky Dog Thrift Shop.  

Without her the Mission would never have come to light. Like Racey our heart goes out to all the beloved pets who have passed away this year. 

May you all Rest In Peace and may your owners find Peace in wonderful memories of you!

You will be reunited at the Rainbow Bridge.



We'd like to thank all our volunteers, especially our at-will volunteers and the many organizations and hospitals that have provided additional support throughout the year. Following are some of them.
