About Us


Let us find a friend who really knows you!  Under our "Meet Your Match" program, we evaluate an animal’s behavior and interests and matches them to an adopter’s preferences.

You can sponsor a pet adoption!  "Paw It Forward" lets donors pay the adoption fee for a particular animal.  When the animal is adopted, the adopter may choose to "paw it forward" and donate the adoption fee to another animal waiting for a home.

More information on these and other programs are available on our web site (www.happytailsanimalshelter.org).

Adopting A Friend

Our usual adoption fees are $100 for a dog, $50 for a cat, and $75 for a kitten, which includes vaccinations, microchip, and spay/neuter.  You must be 21 years of age or older to adopt and must live within 200 miles of our shelter.
