Welcome to Tails to Tell


Each year Tails to Tell Animal Rescue Shelter Ltd. takes in hundreds of stray animals and lost family pets.  The majority of these animals do not have any form of identification. 

In an effort to reduce the number of pets with no identification, Tails to Tell will host a third microchip clinic on April 26, 2014 in Olds, Alberta.  Details are below.  The veterinary clinic has donated the use of their facility, doctors, and staff to allow us to offer the service for a minimal fee. Time and space is limited.  If the response is great, more clinics will be scheduled. 

Pre-registration is required.  Forms are available below, on the Tails to Tell Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/tailstotell), at Chinook Country Vet Clinic in Olds, or call 403-946-0011.  Completed forms can be emailed to: info@tailstotell.ca or faxed to 403-946-0012.  A time will be assigned to you upon registration or you will be notified by email or telephone.  Please bring the original form with you to the Microchip Clinic. Cash only. Tails to Tell does not have the use of a Credit Card or Debit System.

Who are we?
Tails to Tell Animal Rescue is a non-profit no kill animal shelter located in Crossfield Alberta. We are run entirely by volunteers and donations. Our primary focus is rescuing stray and injured companion animals who would otherwise perish without help. Tails to Tell provides our rescues with the necessities, as well as any required medical care or rehabilitation in a communal living environment as we search for suitable forever homes. We promote responsible pet ownership by ensuring all of our animals are spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated, tattooed and microchipped before they leave our shelter.
