About Us

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).

Pasta with Your Pups Fun for Everyone
