Who We Are:
Happy Tails is a small group of volunteers dedicated to the rescue and placement of abused, neglected and unwanted animals. We are a Michigan "no-kill," 501(C)(3)non-profit organization operating in Macomb and parts of Wayne, and Oakland counties since 1995. We do not have a shelter facility. All of our pets are in foster homes where they receive all of the same love, training and care that the Foster's personal pets receive.
What We Do:
As a rescue, we help animals from many different situations. Often, they come from owners who can no longer care for them. Some come from veterinary offices where an animal has been abandoned, and a few come from kill shelters, either because their time is up, or so that another animal doesn't have to die to make room.
As foster care givers, we make sure the animals get veterinary care, including vaccinations, sterilization, testing, and a microchip ID. In the event an animal is ill, they receive proper medical treatment. All of this occurs prior to adoption. These amazing animals live together with us in our homes until a suitable permanent family is found. Each week, we bring them to Meet and Greet events, where potential adopters can connect with them. We take applications, do vet checks, home visits, and all of the paper work needed for the placement of the pet following the guidelines set up by the rescue. We give our time, money, patience, and a piece of our heart to each and every animal that passes through our lives.
