Happy Tails Animal Rescue of Washington County, VA is a not- for- profit organization dedicated to the rescue of animals from the harm of abuse, neglect, abandonment, and unnecessary euthanasia and to the placement of animals with rescue organizations or adopters. We support and promote spaying and neutering of all cats and dogs to help control the pet overpopulation and promote education of the public about responsible pet ownership. Members of Happy Tails have been practicing animal rescue since 2002 and over 8,300 animals have been saved at this time.
Happy Tails rescues animals from individuals in the community who wish to relinquish as well as from the local animal shelter that practices euthanasia. These animals are either immediately transported to the safety of outlying no-kill rescue organizations or fostered locally for future adoption or rescue. During the foster period Happy Tails provides general care for the animals and age-appropriate veterinary care including deworm, deflea, vaccinations, and spay/neuter as well as treatment of any illness/disease/trauma/chronic or congenital conditions. Happy Tails provides weekly transports to no-kill rescue organizations in areas with greater demand for pets and also offers local adoptions. Local adoptions require an application, an interview, a home visit, and veterinary reference check before animals are placed in forever homes.
All life is precious.
Local adoptions require an application, an interview, a home visit, and veterinary reference check before animals are placed in forever homes. There is an adoption fee of $100 for dogs and $85 for cats. Dogs and cats are fully vetted upon adoption.
