One Tail at a Time, is a no-kill, 501(c)3 all-breed dog rescue that serves to lower euthanasia rates in the greater Chicagoland area and provide education on the humane treatment of companion animals. The rescue concentrates its efforts on dogs that are in danger of being euthanized, or those that are physically and/or mentally deteriorating in a shelter environment, works to rehabilitate them, and then matches each dog with a permanent home. Focused on keeping pets as a part of our family, One Tail at a Time offers fosters and adopters continued support and education on how best to keep dogs happy, healthy and bonded for life.


One Tail at a Time partners with local and national organizations in an effort to save lives.

The Chicago Area Shelter Alliance‘s mission is to reduce, and eventually eliminate, needless euthanasia of companion animals and to encourage cooperation to find homes for every adoptable animal.

Through Best Friends Animal Society‘s Network Partner Program, over 900+ rescues, shelters, and spay/neuter facilities are working together to Save Them All.


We have received grants from the following foundations in the past three years:

Best Friends Animal Society
High Hopes for Pets Foundation
The Second Chance Fund (from American Humane Association)
Three Dog Bakery Foundation
Animal Farm Foundation
