Welcome to Whiskers & Tails

Who We Are

Whiskers & Tails Foundation is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit local pet rescue organization based in Rancho Palos Verdes, Southern California.

Even if you can't adopt, our animals could still use your support. It's easy! Just click on DONATE button on the left side. Thank you.

If you're interested in adopting a dog or cat from us, we'll ask you to fill out an adoption application. This gives us a chance to find out a little bit about you and to make sure the dog, or cat that you are interested in will be a good match for your family and lifestyle.

All adoption fees include the spay/neuter, all vaccinations ( Rabies, DHAPP, Bordetella), De-worming, one month of flea medications, microchip insertion and the registration of the chip through AVID.

Our shelter has seen a remarkable increase in surrendered animals due to the rise in foreclosures, and evictions. We are proactive in financially assisting low income pet owners with spaying and neutering their pets.

Getting feral cats to be spayed & neutered is our utmost concern. We trap, neuter, or spay and release them (TNR). We distribute cat food donation to feeders to feed and monitor colonies in the community.

Our organization also rescues barnyard animals from local shelters, and individual owner locations, that are not zoned for these types of animals. We keep our roosters, hens, ducks, pigs, goats, etc.... at a legally zoned property until they are adopted.

One of our mission objectives is to educate the general public with literature such as "Living with Backyard Wildlife".

**2-18-15 Please Help, URGENT FUND RAISING needed: **

Click on "Quarry's" Picture for Fund Raiser Information, and how you can help.


Whiskers & Tails Foundation has rescued this family of 5 from a gravel pit, but your help is urgently needed. Mommie dog "Quarry" is injured, although they are trying to save her leg; she will have to have surgery and unfortunately may even need to get her left hind leg amputated. The vet thinks she was hit by a car some time ago and her hip socket is destroyed! This sweet, gentle little girl has suffered so much on the streets and sacrificed everything to protect and nurse her puppies, to the point of her own starvation! Once "Quarry" mommie dog recovers she will need to go to a training bootcamp to be socialized, as she is feral, with the money for the surgery & training bootcamp we will enable her & her puppies to be adopted & find their forever homes.  Please help if you can...
