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 Animal Shelter of White County Indiana 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, five 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 volunteers. Thank you again, to each and every one of you for making this all possible.
We want to thank each and everyone that joined us at Petfest 2013.
It 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.
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 month.

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