Happy Tails depends primarily on donations and grants for its operations. Your donation directly contributes to the following programs:
Cats and Dogs Adoption: Happy Tails finds loving homes for approximately 500 cats and dogs each year. Donations contribute to routine medical care, spay and neuter procedures, food, and other supplies for all our adoptable animals.
Cat Sanctuary: The Zoe K. McCrea Feline Sanctuary houses over 100 cats. These sanctuary cats include cats who are displaced from their outdoor homes or cats who are unsuited for adoption for medical or behavioral reasons. The sanctuary provides a safe space for cats who need a longer adjustment period to learn to socialize before transitioning to the adoption center. Donations provide for food and litter to keep the operation of the sanctuary.
Medical Care: As a no-kill sanctuary, Happy Tails takes pride in going the extra mile to provide medical care for cats and dogs with illnesses and injury. To help keep pets in their home, Happy Tails also provides monetary support for essential medical procedures to individual owners who have demonstrated a need.
Feral Cat Colony Caretaking: Happy Tails’ volunteers manage several outdoor feral cat colonies. Volunteers feed the feral cats daily and also carry out trap-neuter-return (TNR) of unaltered cats to keep the feral cat population in check. Donations help cover the cost of food and spay and neuter procedures.
