Another year has come and gone but, many shelter dogs and cats have been given a second chance at life with loving families and forever homes.

A 'THANK YOU"......to our Adopters, our Businesses, our Community, and our Volunteers, for all their support. With your donations, and volunteering you ALL have made this possible. With the collaboration of Monon Veterinary Clinic and Happy Tails Anim...al Shelter of White County In. all the strays are given a second chance at life into loving and forever homes.

It seems when the shelter receives a stray or two from Dr. Shields we adopt out the same number a few days later. We are so blessed to always say yes to Dr. Sam and Staff that we ALWAYS have room for one more.

We live in a small community and so many people have cats and dogs already but, .....this past year 49 dogs and 20 cats have been adopted. Which is wonderful and is an increase from last year. Also, 5 dogs were re-united with their families, and two Huskies went to MUSH Rescue. Nanuk one of the Huskies after being transported to MUSH was adopted by one of our own Board Members and volunteer. Thank you again, to each and everyone of you for making this all possible.








 Happy Tails volunteers and shelter animals wish each and everyone a very.......Merry Christmas.
    Over the past few months the shelter has gotten in many dogs and a few cats.  We are so blessed with adoptors who have stepped forward and given many of these a loving and forever home.  Thank you to the community who continue to support or mission with their donations and caring.


We want to thank each and everyone that joined us at Petfest 2013.  I was a wonderful turnout and everyone had fun.  Thank you all for your donations and hope everyone had a piece of cake celebrating....Happy Tails 10th Anniversary.  Thank you all for being a part of Happy Tails.                                                                                                                                


     We say a big "THANK YOU"  The donation boxes at, Kroger, Rural King, and the box outside of the shelter are always keep full. We have not had to buy food or cat litter for a year and a half thanks to each and every one.  Also, the people that walked in and mailed donations thank you for caring about our shelter and the shelter animals.                                                 


 On Facebook visit "Happy Tails Animal Shelter of White County" and read about the adopted cats and dogs in the Adopted Album.  Many people send updated pictures of their pet in their new homes.                                                                                                             


 See Pet of the Week in the HERALD JOURNAL every Friday or Saturday.  There will be a dog or a cat feature telling their own story. They are all up for adoption. We also have an article in the Herald Journal the first of each monthPET OF THE WEEK is also on the Happy Tails FB just click on the Profile Picture.


ADOPT A PET.....All of the Dogs....Kittens....and Cats are on the Adopt A Pet Website.  Please visit them and read about the stories they tell.


People complain about animal shelters and how some of them put innocent animals down. Take a step back and think.....These animals would not be here if their owners would have taken care of them, loved them and had them spayed and / or neutered. Animals are not a toy, that can be thrown away when they get sick or old. They have a heart and its filled with love. So many animals that arrive at shelters are so sick, due to malnurishment, heart worm, and abuse, parvo, injuries that there is no way to make them well again.  People have no idea what some of these shelters face.  We are very fortunate to have  Dr. Shields.  When Animal Control picks up strays they are taken to Monon Veterinary Clinic.  The Dr. Sam checks them out and hope they will be rescued by their owners.  If the owners are not found in five days then they come to us.  We care for them and love them until the they can be adopted by a loving and forever family.  We have had some that were reunited with their family at our shelter. This is our Mission to save as many lives as we can and give them a second chance for a good home.


Happy Tails is a NO-KILL SHELTER.  All of the animals in this shelter are all adopted out to loving and caring families.
