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: Nicki

nicki new good
Hi! I’m Nicki and everyone says that I am adorable and sweet. My foster mom said I could be a model with my naturally adorable and pouty Bulldog face!  I love to play with my doggie foster brother and sister!  They are very nice. I’m also good with kids of all ages.  I am a super doggie!  I saw the Dogter and he said that I am 2 years old and weigh 45 pounds and am an American Bulldog.

My adoption donation fee is $265, which includes my spay, routine vetting and a microchip.  You can apply for Nicki by filling out our online application, which is found on our here. Please email us at info@tarashouse.net with any questions.
