Travel Tails Tours

Traveling is a way to relax, grow and now, help our animals! One of our long time supporters and volunteers, Sharon Bonnett has partnered with Collette Vacations to create vacations that not only allow you to see the world but help our shelter at the same time.

All tours are managed through international tour provider COLLETTE. Any of COLLETTE’S 200 tours can be booked through Travel Tails Tours and the New Nodaway Humane Society will benefit. Travel Tails Tours donates 100% of its commission to the New Nodaway Humane Society. Discounts are available for early registrations.

Transportation is provided from Maryville and from St. Joseph to the airport in Kansas City. Flights can be booked, however, from any major U.S. airport.
