Ways You Can Help

Become a Foster Parent

What  does it  mean to be a Foster 'Parent'? 


Do you love animals? Are you a team player? Do you have room in your heart & home for another life?


As a Foster 'Parent' you can experience the satisfaction of giving a pet the socializing, care and training they want, need and deserve while they wait for their forever family to adopt them.  


Happy Tails covers all necessary vetting.  We need you to get them to their appointments. Also, when donations are available, food, litter and other necessities are supplied.  Foster Parents will bring their adoptable pets to our Meet & Greet events held every Saturday from 11-2 at Pet Supplies Plus in St. Clair Shores (Harper at 13 Mile) and the 3rd Sunday of each month at Pet Supplies Plus located at Harper and 13 Mile Rd. Helping an animal find a good home is such a rewarding feeling :) 

In addition to monetary support, there are many supplies which are needed to properly care for our foster animals.


       Kitten Food (Dry)                               Cat Litter

       Puppy Food (Dry)                               Baby Gates

       Folding Cages                                 Heating Pads                  Puppy Training Pads                        Puppy Playpens 

       Cat Towers/Scratching Posts            Bunny Toys

       Pet Store Gift Cards                         Paper Towels

       Office Supply Gift Cards                    Cleaning Supplies

       Carefresh Small Animal Bedding (for kittens & rabbits)

       Stamps                                          Rabbit Cages

       Puppy/Kitten Nursing Kits                Envelopes



Please remember, all donations to Happy Tails are tax deductible. Thank you for your continued support.


A little time and effort goes a long way!  If you are unable to foster or make donations, extra help is always appreciated for our weekend Meet & Greet events (setup and teardown at Meet & Greets requires some lifting), transport of foster pets, at special events, vet visits, or even adoption assistance.  If you are able to help with any of these situations  then we would love to hear from you :) 

The Reason


I would've died that day, if not for you

I would've given up on life if not for your kind eyes

I would've used my teeth in fear if not for your gentle hands

I would've left this life believing that all humans don't care

Believing there is no such thing as fur that isn't matted

Skin that isn't flea bitten

Good food and enough of it

Someone to love me

To show me I deserve love just because I exist

Your kind eyes, your loving smile, your gentle hands

Your big heart saved me ...


You saved me from the terror of my abuser

Soothing away the memories of my old life

You have taught me what it means to be loved.


I have seen you do the same for other animals like me

I've heard you ask yourself in times of despair why you do it

When there is no more money, no more room, no more homes

You open your heart a little bigger

Stretch the money a little tighter

Make just a little more room ... to save one more like me.


I tell you with the gratitude and love that shines in my eyes

In the best way I know how

Reminding you why you go on trying


I am the reason


The animals before me are the reason as are 

The ones who come after

Our lives would be wasted, our love never given

We would die if not for you


Thank You!
