Welcome to Tara’s House!
Tara’s House is a private, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our mission is to rescue and provide care and compassion for our pets while working to place them in permanent, loving homes. The pets we rescue arrive at Tara’s House from high kill shelters, many with little to no funding for their own adoption programs. These shelters rely on Tara’s House to save these adoptable pets from certain euthanasia.
Dog of the month: Kelo
Kelo is a sweet, silly boy who is guaranteed to put a smile on your face! He is very happy and loves to snuggle. He is good with children, cats and dogs. Kelo is also a quick learner! He walks nicely on his leash and he has learned to sit before given his meals. He is learning basic commands too. He is housetrained and he lets his foster mom dress him up and take pictures of him! He is a great family pet!!! Our partner vet estimates that Kelo is 1.5 years old, weighs 55 pounds and is a Border Collie/American Bulldog mix boy.
His adoption donation fee is $260, which includes his neuter, routine vetting and a microchip. You can apply for Kelo by filling out our online application, which is found on our website www.tarashouse.net or

The work to save pets from almost sure euthanization starts at a farm in Kearneysville, W.Va., but much of its success occurs at the Frederick PetSmart. Even this happens only after legwork that reaches as far as California and Kentucky. The organization is Tara’s House, a nonprofit that rescues animals from rural, high-kill shelters that do not have the funding and resources to sustain adoption programs. Read more.
