About Us

Pet Tales Rescue was established in 2010 by some people who had spent several years volunteering with other rescues.  They wanted to take their many years of knowledge and experience out on their own to help find homes for abused and abandoned pets. Pet Tales Rescue is a small, all volunteer based rescue located in West Michigan.  We network with many other groups and rescues to optimize our resources and to save as many pets as we can. We are committed to finding loving, permanent homes, that provide the love, companionship and quality care that every animal should have. Pet Tales Rescue is a 501(c)(3) organization. Although we are small, our goal is to help as many pets as we can.

Because we are a rescue and not a shelter, we do not have a physical location. All of our pets are housed in foster homes and are treated like family. This also gives us the advantage of getting to know each of our pets intimately and being able to provide better details to potential adopters.  On average, we help approximately 150 animals per year, which doesn’t seem like many until you think about our handful of volunteers balancing lives and volunteering all year long.  One dog alone takes numerous hours from transporting to a foster home to the time that foster home spends training and rehabing, driving to and from vet appointments and then, finally, the time spent reviewing applications to find the right home for each one.

We believe in reducing the overpopulation of pets by spaying and neutering, so all of our adoptables are spayed or neutered before heading off to their new homes.  Additionally, we want to be involved in our communities to not only raise awareness, but to be a resource and to help educate in a positive way.
