Our shelter is closed for receiving any new dogs, however we still have 17 dogs left in our no kill shelter. If some of the dogs do not find placement, we will continue to take care of them as long as needed.
If you wish to help us with your donations, we greatly appreciate it!

such good care of my Waylon and all the animals. Thank you! Big Hug!
Tara's Babies Animal Welfare
No Kill Animal Rescue and Sanctuary
Practice kindness, save a life...change the world
Tara's Babies began in 2005 as a desperate cry from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina left thousands of dogs and cats, homeless and suffering. Our founder sent a crew of volunteers to search the flooded buildings for animals in need. We rescued 17 dogs and a kitten. and thus began Tara's Babies Animal Welfare (TBAW).
down there, we paired with Best Friends and arranged an airlift to
bring 150 dogs and cats from Tylertown, MS to Phoenix, AZ. Waiting
at the airport when we arrived was a cattle transporter, volunteers
and SUV's to take the animals to Dakini Valley,
sanctuary at Dakini Valley is located on 157 acres in the remote
Hell's Gate Wilderness. Here the dogs and cats were cared for with
love and attention three full-time volunteers until every one of the
Katrina dogs were re-homed or found forever homes, with the
exception of 15 dogs who were non-adoptable needing lifetime
sanctuary. As the original Katrina animals were placed, we found our
true mission evolve into saving animals from death row.
