Our story begins with Edna Jackson, who opened her Critter’s Pet Supply shop in Crossfield in 2006. Soon after, she rescued a local stray and let him live in her store. His name was Thomas, and he is now our logo cat and still lives happily in Critter’s.
Over the next four years, Edna took in all manner of animals who were dumped literally on her door step. From dogs tied to her door after hours, fish left behind during a move, to even a small kitten tied up in a plastic garbage bag left at her door step – Edna saved them all.
Edna knew that the Crossfield area needed an animal shelter, desperately. She could only take in a few animals into her store, and the need was far greater. Edna reached out to the community, her friends and family, and invested a great deal of her own money in order to open Tails to Tell Animal Rescue Shelter.
We opened our doors in September of 2010. By October, we were full! It has now been a full year since we’ve opened, and we’re still going strong thanks to our wonderful supporters who not only supply monetary donations, but also dedicate their time volunteering and their homes fostering needy animals.
