About Tags and Tails

Help Us Help Them


There are so many ways to help and every little bit counts. Want to Volunteer? Can you spare a few hours a week? It can make the difference in the life of a Vet making his or her way back to stable housing. Love dogs but can't take one on their full-time? Many of the dogs in our care need all the attention we can give them, and more. The more human contact they get, the better.


Even taking a few minutes to spread our mission through word-of-mouth or social media helps so much. 

Do you have connection with related organizations providing services to Veterans or homeless dogs? We know this problem won't go away unless we are all in this together. We are always looking for partners that we can work with on this mission.

How We're Helping


We are a community-based, volunteer organization focused on helping Michigan's homeless populations transistion into permanent, forever homes.  


There really is a method to our madness in combining both homeless Veterans and homeless dogs under the Tags and Tails' umbrella.

By giving our Veterans-in-transition the responsibility of caring for other living creatures they will re-acquire some of those skills that might have been lost while struggling with homelessness.  The dog also provide a calming and rehabiliting effect for those Veterans suffering from certain emotional and mental challenges. For homeless dogs, the biggest challenge in rehoming is often rebuilding the trust they've lost through abuse or neglect. By re-learning to trust humans, the dogs in Tags and Tails' care, will have a greater chance of successfully finding their forever homes.

With the help of our tireless volunteers, we organize fundraisers and community events. We look forward to opening our own facility which will provide dignified, temporary housing where the now-homeless can rehabilitate, learn needed skills, and receive training and re-training, that are all necessary for a successful transition to  permanent and forever homes.
