After 25+ years of serving our community as an animal rescue, we have made the difficult decision to close our organization as of September 1st, 2019. We remain committed to helping the cats in our care find forever homes. In an effort to do so, we are reducing our adoption fees to $50 per cat.

We appreciate all of our supporters, adopters, and most importantly, our volunteers. We will remain forever grateful. Thank You!


Happy Tails K9 & Feline Rescue, established in 1994, is a volunteer based Michigan non-Profit corporation offering alternatives to the ever growing number of animals that are euthanized each year. Rescue of abandoned, abused, or stray animals is a day to day, short term fix. The long term solution to animal overpopulation, and ultimately euthanasia, is sterilization.


After more than 2 decades of assisting pets and families in Macomb County and the surrounding areas, Happy Tails is approaching the future with the same goals while having new strategies. Our time and funding will be focused on educating families as well as the care and placement of the foster pets currently in our program. New animal intakes will be on hold, however we will continue to support the community’s needy pets in other ways. Happy Tails is a sanctuary for several unadoptable pets and is committed to their continued support and medical needs. Our adoptable pets will still receive the same care and medical funding required while seeking permanent placement into their new loving homes.



Happy Tails is still accepting your returnable cans and bottles. Be sure to ask friends and family to save their returnables during the holidays and at their bonfires!  Contact us to arrange pickup or drop-off.  We make it easy. If you are local, one of our volunteers can schedule a day to have you leave your boxes or bags on your porch or driveway.

Sweet Sugar is looking for her forever home. She was found while pregnant but is now spayed and all of her kittens have been adopted. She is a happy girl that loves attention at home, but if you plan to meet her at one of our events, expect to get some dirty looks lol She enjoys a good petting even at the events though.


Chazz is a handsome guy that keeps getting overlooked. He came to us obese and diabetic from the extra weight. However, he is now healthy and has been in remission with no need for insulin.
