One Tail at a Time’s (OTAT) mission is to end pet homelessness by making pet ownership a joyful and accessible experience for all. As of 2020, OTAT manages; a bustling dog adoption program at its Adoption Center, an ISO Program focusing on Chicago’s dogs, a Kitten Team that cares for neonate kittens, vaccine/resource clinics in underserved neighborhoods, and leads the Chicagoland Rescue Intervention & Support Program (CRISP), which prevents pets from being surrendered to the city shelter and keeps them with their loving families.
The Grey Muzzle Organization's support will provide medical care for senior dogs in One Tail at a Time’s isolation (ISO) program, which focuses on rescue for dogs in Chicago’s most heavily populated, open-admission shelters. In 2019, The Grey Muzzle Organization's support helped OTAT increase its number of senior dogs rescued by over 90 percent! Grey Muzzle's renewed support in 2020 will continue to provide care for the most vulnerable senior dogs in Chicago's shelter system.
One Tail at a Time received the first annual Susan Piskorski Grant, generously made in honor of her love for her precious dogs Abbee, Josie, Ski and Barree.
