Review for Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary, Sacramento, CA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Happy tails is housing (hoarding) over 100 feral cats in a small room. (about 600 sq ft.) They adopt out cats with ringworm and other health issue. When you question the cats health you are referred to the "feline health advisor". The advisor is not a vet or even a vet tech. When asked happy tails said she has a lot of life experience. It's obvoius happy tails has their priorities mixed up. They obviously don't put the animals well being first.

Accusations of hoarding and mistreatment are unsubstantiated and unfounded. All of our cats – including those in Catnip Gardens – receive daily care, feeding and socializing by a team of dedicated volunteers. Volunteers work day and night to provide a clean and healthy environment for the cats, and licensed veterinarians provide weekly health checks and treatment. Since 1993, Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary has rescued abandoned, abused and unwanted cats and kittens in the Sacramento area. Our mission is to provide these animals high-quality medical treatment, including spaying and neutering, and then to place them in safe, loving, permanent homes. In our 20 year history, we have helped nearly 20,000 animals. We continue to be all volunteer, no kill and cage free. Happy Tails recently received generous funding to expand Catnip Gardens, our semi-feral, enclosed area. Plans include expanding the current floor plan and adding a second level to Catnip Gardens. No additional cats will be taken in – the objective is to extend space to the facility. Our dedicated volunteers work with these cats every day to socialize them for a home environment. As the cats become more accustomed to human interaction, Happy Tails moves at least one to two cats out of Catnip Gardens and into our Adoption Center on a monthly basis. Happy Tails’ main concern is always the health and well-being of the animals. If anyone has questions about Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary or how we operate, please contact us purrball@happytails.org.
