This shelter strives to meet the needs of humans and animals in the surrounding area, with the basic needs of food, bedding, clothing, animal care supplies and items, personal hygiene items, utility assistance, animal medical care and animal pet food.  

The success is all dependent on donations from the public and needs for humans and animals are met as the donation funds available allow.

With COVID – 1 The Whiskers and Tails Shelter donations are down and resources are running low. They still have several folks who still need help in the Bates County area.
