Great Hearts Initiatives | One Tail At A Time

Mission

One Tail at a Time (“OTAT”) is a no-kill, 501(c)3 all-breed dog rescue committed to lowering euthanasia rates in the greater Chicagoland area through the rescue and adoption of dogs in need; comprehensive support of adopters; and community outreach through humane education programs and assistance for disadvantaged and low-income families.

OTAT formed in 2008 as a small organization aimed at helping dogs. Over the years due to the dedication of the Board of Directors and volunteers, OTAT has grown exponentially and now runs vaccine clinics, a shelter diversion program, and a bustling adoption program. With over 1,500 adoptions and a new (in 2015) Adoption Center, OTAT is ready and willing to help make Chicago the next no-kill City.

Great Hearts Community Recommendations

"My wife and I rescued our dog from One Tail At A Time about 5 years ago. We couldn't have been happier with our experience with this organization. Well run, easy to work with, and passionate about their cause. I strongly recommend this organization and encourage others to support it. " - Sean Hennessy
