Happy Tails

Featured Pet:  Tu-Tu

Tu-Tu is smart and loves kids.  His DNA test shows he's Australian Cattle Dog and Rottweiler.  He's a great dog--come out and meet him!  More about Tu-Tu


Bring Them Home

Ready for a pet?  Adopting is the way to go.  You will save a life and your pet will come to you vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and microchipped.  The cost to have this done on your own would be far more than the Happy Tails adoption fee ($100 for dogs, $125 for puppies; $50 for cats, $75 for kittens, and $25 for senior cats).  To learn more about our adoption process, click here.


Hours Open to the Public
Every day 8:00 a.m. to noon
Wednesday and Thursday 5:00-7:00 p.m.
We're located at 1408 McNeil Road in Rock Falls, between Dixon Avenue and Route 30

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).
Pete Harkness Adoption Event

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!"
