who are we?
Twisted Tails has been an adventure of sharing our home and hearts with animals (and humans) for many years. Full tummies, warm beds and belly rubs evolved to incorporating healthy foods and proven therapies for healing physical, emotional and energy complications. Organic and holistic products - for both animals and humans - round out our healing place, enabling us to fulfill our lifetime vision. Our mission is to heal those who have been damaged - animals and humans.
Our story began years before we "officially" started rescuing. A very special yellow lab, Molly, was the impetus into our quest to do more for those who couldn't tell us how to help them. She suffered from severe allergies and the only remedy at the time were shots. This simply wasn't a long-term option we were willing to live with; fortunately neither was our Vet. Together, we discovered the value of good quality human food.
We changed her diet and immediately she was allergy free.
Friends, family and those within ear shot, continually heard of the health benefits of quality homemade dog food. "Meal-prep" took on a life of its own before the 'raw' dog food industry was born!
More rescue dogs were added to the mix; their diets and lives changed for the better as well. Unbeknownst to us, our passion for healthy food bloomed into this vision of rescue, hope, healing and sanctuary. And it continues to expand.
Dogs, horses, barn cats and more are in our care.
All are welcome here.
We converted our Glendale, Arizona property into a rescue, a sanctuary for the misfits--the ones no one wants, the ones that are abused, the ones that are discarded. We've been certified in proven techniques and healing modalities and continue to learn. In healing our 'critters'; they in turn, magically pass their gifts of healing, in the simplest of ways, to those who need it most - humans.
We knew our work was not just a 'place' but a space to heal, rebuild trust and have hope. The work is not done. The need is never over.
This is Twister's Tale; all the rescue tales & tails intertwined. Their stories are why we are building this legacy for all - domestic, wild & human.
