Great Tails Animal Rescue is a nonprofit dedicated to providing temporary shelter and veterinary care for stray, abandoned, and surrendered animals of Itasca County and surrounding areas, with the purpose of finding loving, permanent homes. They serve as an advocate for domestic animals in our community by promoting spay and neutering, providing education and resources, and encouraging essential veterinary care.
“Doggy’s Day Out” was inspired by the “Homes for Dogs Project,” a five-year campaign launched by Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC and Adopt-a-Pet.com, North America's largest non-profit pet adoption website. The nationwide adoption weekend will take place the same weekend.
“We are lucky enough to help people throughout Itasca County find new homes every day,” said Mike Kellin, owner/broker of Coldwell Banker Northwoods Realty in Grand Rapids, Minn. “Now, we get to extend that service to pets in need by supporting Great Tails Animal Rescue. It’s a win-win.”
