Adopt from Tails High

Tails High Cat Rescue is a foster home-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit run by passionate volunteers, helping cats and kittens in the Washington Metropolitan area. All of our cats and kittens are in loving foster homes until they are ready for adoption. We do not have a physical shelter space and depend on the kindness of our volunteers to open their homes and hearts to kitties in need in order to fulfill our mission. Tails High makes a concerted effort to assist the local community in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland and the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. We believe that saving cats in our “own backyard” is essential to supporting our community. We occasionally assist cats from other areas, typically due to specific medical or behavioral needs we feel specially suited to assist with. Our group aims to get cats and kittens off the streets and into homes where they are safe, so we often help orphan kittens, queens with litters of kittens, friendly strays and cats and kittens with health concerns needing urgent medical attention. We believe every cat deserves an advocate and miracles can happen. This often leaves us to step in and say “yes” when other rescues have unfortunately had to say no. Our cats come from all walks of life and some have had a very sad beginning, which means we only work harder to give them everything they deserve. We root for the underdog – well, cat – and oftentimes go far beyond what a standard animal rescue might have a means to do when it comes to saving a life. When you make the decision to support Tails High, you have our promise that you will be cherished as a part of our family. This cat-loving community of ours is the reason we are able to save hundreds of lives each year, with that number growing every day, because of the generous donations and kind word of mouth that furthers our reach. Adopting a Tails High cat means you have us in your corner for the lifetime of your kitty. We are always here to support our adopters, just like our fosters and volunteers. It means so much to us to stay in touch with our adopters and watch the Happy Tails of the kitties we’ve saved unfold. Thank you for your support!
