Happier Tails Rescue

happier tails rescue Inc. an all breed, all love rescue dogs for adoption

COVID-19 Response

It is with a very heavy heart that HTR has come to the decision to put a freeze on the intake of dogs during the Covid-19 pandemic.  The safety of our fosters, volunteers, adopters, and general public is our number one priority.  We are all in this together.  Stay Well ❤️

About us...

Happier Tails Rescue Inc. is a 501c(3) foster-based, nonprofit, no-kill rescue located in Southern California. We are a rescue organization that saves the unwanted, abused, forgotten, abandoned, red-listed dogs in shelters and in our communities. We rescue all breeds, sizes and ages. 

We put animals first! Our rescue runs solely on donations from supporters, and because we are a non-profit, all donations are tax deductible. Rest assured that 100% of donations go directly to help rescue, feed, care for and save the life of a dog in need! 

All of our rescue animals receive high quality veterinary care, are up to date on vaccinations, are spayed & neutered and micro-chipped, before being adopted out to loving homes. Our adoption policy consists of an application, screenings, home checks and adoption contracts. 

Although our dogs are fostered in amazing homes, they hope to one day be adopted by you! Their wish is to have a second chance at life, happiness and love. All they need is you!

Please take a moment to visit our Available Dogs page. Who knows, you might find your next true love.

Our Mission is to become a leading rescue organization who saves the unwanted, abused, forgotten, sick and injured dogs in our communities.

Our belief is that all animals deserve a chance at a life filled with unconditional love, respect and a loving family.

Our hope is to ultimately bring an end to the suffering of abandoned, unwanted, neglected and abused pets.
