Happy Tails operates Whiteside County's only animal shelter. We are a
limited-intake, no-kill facility that shelters and cares for stray and
abandoned dogs and cats until they are adopted into loving, permanent
homes. We promote pet adoption and humane education. Happy Tails is a
501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
We follow practices and guidelines established by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), and the Association of Shelter Veterinarians (ASV). We are a member of the Society of Animal Welfare Administrators (SAWA).
On August 30 Pete Harkness Auto Group and Happy Tails got together to "make a pet's day." All adoption fees were generously sponsored by Pete Harkness Auto. Taz (below, with his new family and Happy Tails' Donald Czyzyk) was one of nine pets who found homes through the Make a Pet's Day event. If Taz could talk, he and his adopted friends would tell the wonderful folks at Pete Harkness "Thank you for helping us find our forever homes!"
