Mission:
"Helping Those Who Cannot Help Themselves"
Happy Tails is a no-kill facility dedicated to protecting and improving the lives of homeless and abused animals. Needy animals are rescued, nurtured, and provided shelter and medical care (including spaying and neutering) before being placed in loving homes or safe sanctuary. Happy Tails is also dedicated to educating the public about the joys and responsibilities of caring for these creatures whose lives also have value.

Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary celebrates 20 years of providing a safe haven for abused, neglected, abandoned and homeless animals in the Sacramento area and beyond. We plan to serve our community for another 20 years with the dedication and commitment of our many volunteers and supporters.

Happy Tails was founded in 1993 by volunteers committed to a common goal: creating a safe haven for abandoned and abused animals. Happy Tails has grown to an all-volunteer organization with close to 200 volunteers whose hard work resulted in the City's first cage-free adoption center.

Happy Tails has helped close to 20,000 animals – including rescue and placement of domestic cats and dogs, trap/spay/neuter of feral cats, assisting our community and encouraging responsible treatment of animals. In addition, an even higher number of unwanted animal births were prevented, making a major contribution in the reduction of the local cat and dog over-population problem.

We also maintain several feral cat colonies in the Sacramento area. Cats are humanely trapped, tested for Feline Leukemia and Feline AIDS, vaccinated, altered, de-wormed, flea treated, ear notched, returned and maintained. Cats receive food and water daily from our feral caregivers. Cat health is monitored and animals are removed for veterinary care if they appear unhealthy. Through our extensive trapping program, we are able to maintain our colonies as sterile, healthy colonies. Dumped friendly cats are picked up and brought into our foster care system for adoption. Because we do not want to encourage the dumping of friendly animals at the colonies, we do not make the location of the colonies public.
