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.

We at Tara’s House would like to give our adopters and friends a special opportunity to memorialize or honor a special pet or person in your life,  either past or present.  Please check out our In Memoriam page, and send a picture and short description to info@tarashouse.net;  and help Tara’s House by making a donation in their honor or memory.  A card will be sent to the person you are honoring.   

Interested in purchasing Tara’s House soy candles, tee shirts, yoga pants and tote bags? See our merchandise page!  

Featured Pet:  Gracie


Adorable, well-socialized, great family pet!!!

Hi! I’m Gracie.  I love people and doggie friends, too!  I would love a family to play with me – as I’m good with the young kids in my foster home! The Dogter said that I am an American Bulldog girl, and that I’m 2 years old and weigh a nice 45 pounds. I am very cute, people tell me. I like to chase the kitty but I don’t hurt her. She tolerates me. I’m very good with all the doggies in my foster home!  Oh, I like kongs and nylabones to chew! My adoption donation fee is $280 which includes my spay, routine vetting and a microchip.  Thanks to a generous sponsor who wanted to see Gracie get a wonderful home — Gracie is finishing up a month-long in-home training program! You can apply for Gracie by filling out our online application, which is found on our website www.tarashouse.net or www.tarashouse.org.  Please email us atinfo@tarashouse.net with any questions.
