The team, which consists of all ages and abilities, welcomes newcomers as we help raise money to spay/neuter stray animals in Fairfield County. TEAM TAILS will be taking part in the (September 29th, 2019) Bigelow Community Challenge 5K (3.1 mile) Road Race, 2 mile Non Competitive Walk, and - for the younger participants - the Kids' 100 yard Scamper, 880 yard Jog and 1 mile Run.
By obtaining personal pledges from sponsors, we hope to raise desperately needed funds for T.A.I.L.S. Spay/Neuter Programs. We have spay/neutered over 200 animals already this year and we need financial assistance to keep up the great pace of animal lifesaving!! Can you join us and let your feet help animals? All donations are tax-deductible and 100% of all proceeds will go directly to T.A.I.L.S. Spay/Neuter Programs.
In addition to knowing you are helping to save animals here in Fairfield County you will get a race tshirt and fabulous goody bag! We welcome everyone - walkers, runners, kids - and are not a competitive team - our only competition is to spay/neuter as many animals as possible. Please join us! For more information about joining please sign up here: https://tailsct.z2systems.com/np/admin/event/eventDetails.do?id=1809 or email us at email@example.com
We will take care of registering you for the race, getting your shirt, packet and bib number - just make sure to click the signup link to let us know you want to be part of the team!
About TAILS (The Alliance In Limiting Strays)
P.O. Box 2277, Westport, CT 06880, US
The mission of T.A.I.L.S. is to serve the community as a charitable organization that promotes spay/neutering of animals and provides financial support to humane organizations and individuals in pursuit of this goal. We are dedicated to vigorously promoting and educating the community about the importance of spay/neuter to reduce, and eventually elimnate, the killing of unwanted dogs, cats, and other animals.
Put simply, TAILS funds and promotes spaying and neutering in Fairfield County to save thousands of dogs and cats from being born into a world of already overflowing shelters. Formed in 2001, TAILS has grown each year thanks to the many volunteers who have come out and made our events successful. A tax exempt, 501(c)3 we welcome anyone who cares about our furry friends to come out and help us make a difference for dogs and cats! Thanks!
In November 2014, we took over the cat adoption space at the Petco-Norwalk location at 650 Main Ave (next to WalMart and Staples) in addition to housing and fostering dogs/puppies whenever we could. So although our mission is focused on spaying/neutering the problem of animal overpopulation (especially when it comes to the kittens and friendly cats we come across in our Trap-Neuter-Return programs) has given way to our moving into saving our furry friends through adoption programs. Make no mistake - we are still focused on spay/neutering - full year 2014 we spay/neutered 197 dogs and cats! - but we just need more folks to help us with the actual care of dogs/cats as the need grows. Can you help? We would simply love it.
