Welcome to Tara’s House!

Tara’s House is a private, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and an “all-breed” dog rescue.  Our mission is to rescue and provide care and compassion for our pets while working to place them in permanent, loving homes.  Tara’s House has a dual approach to rescuing companion animals:  1) we rescue from many local Maryland shelters, where we focus primarily on rescuing the “harder to place” dogs, such as those that are older, injured, or those that suffer from unwarranted breed discrimination; and 2) we rescue all breeds of dogs from high-kill shelters in rural areas with little to no funding for their own adoption programs.

At Tara’s House, our adoption program provides our pets with the love, vet care and, if needed, professional behavior modification that they need to thrive.  Through our adoption committee process, we find our pets forever homes.  We receive no government funding; we operate solely on private donations and volunteer efforts.  Our team of volunteers is dedicated to helping those pets that we can, and to making a positive impact in the life of each pet we rescue.

We are preparing to launch the Tara’s House Community Outreach Division – more information coming soon!

Hi! I’m Sammy. I am 2 years old and I weigh 50 pounds. I am calm and loving! I like to have my belly rubbed while watching TV. I am good with other dogs too! People say I’m very cute. My human foster sister is 8 years old and I am good with her. Sammy’s adoption donation fee is $280, which includes spay/neuter, routine vetting and a microchip. You can apply for Sammy by filling out our online application, which is found on our website www.tarashouse.net or www.tarashouse.org. Please email us at info@tarashouse.net with any questions.
