Happy Tails Adoption Update-Jewel, now named Muffy!

Looks pretty content and happy in her new home, huh?!
Elise shares the background on Jewel...a friend of mine called me a few months ago asking if we could take in this cat. She is a six year old gorgeous green eyed white Persian whose human dad had passed away and her human mom was moving into an adult living center where pets were not allowed. The owner so upset about the cat not having a home that she even considered having her put to sleep so that she did not have to worry about her not getting a good home again.  We took Jewel and had her for a few months. Jewel was adopted about two weeks ago by Lauren and Cory who love her dearly and were kind enough to send us some of Jewel's happy pictures in her new home!

Here are the pictures of Jewel I wanted to send you!

We renamed her Muffy. I don't know why, Cory named her and it just fits.
She responds very well to it though.

She has done a complete turn around, and she is very loving and
affectionate towards us now. We discovered that she loves Christmas
string. She is extremely playful when it comes to string. :)


  Thank you Lauren and Cory for adopting her, we are so happy she found such a wonderful, loving family!

Zeke is looking for his forever home

Zeke is a two year old Sheba Inu who was rescued from a local kill shelter only 15 minutes from his scheduled euthanasia.  His personality is very much as described in this breed type-independent, intelligent and prey driven. 

While in his foster home he is house trained and laid back.  He has great manners and does not attempt to climb on furniture or jump up on people.  He is happy to cuddle, be brushed and petted.  He enjoys basking in the sun and lazing around in the back yard.  However, when taken out on a leash he becomes the hunter and is focused on searching for whatever creature lurks in the grass or trees such as rabbits, squirrels and birds. 

He is fine in a home with older children and with another low key dog but he cannot be in a home with a cat.  If you are interested in adopting this amazing dog please email .

Tonka Chuck and Jack go to school

Today we took Tonka Chuck and Jack to a school where they met 45 children grades 1-3, both dogs did just great with the kids!  We were there to talk to them about rescue.  Tonka and Jack are wonderful examples of how great dogs that are rescued can be!
Tonka Chuck

Tonka is part of the litter of 8 puppies found at an abandoned house in August.  He and his mom, Cricket are still looking for their forever homes.

Jack is one of 3 pups found after being dumped in the country this summer.  He and his mom, Brindy are still looking for their forever homes so contact us if you'd like more info on adopting,, thanks!
