Who We Are

Happy Tails Puppy Rescue is a non-profit puppy Rescue Organization based out of Wilmington, NC that has been rescuing dogs since 2003. HTPR is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to saving the lives of homeless puppies and placing them in qualified homes. HTPR does not have a shelter and depends on the generosity of the people who offer to foster dogs in their homes. Our volunteers do not receive pay for their help and all money raised by fund-raisers, donations and adoptions go directly to benefit HTPR rescue companion pets.

Adopting a friend

If interested in applying to adopt any of HTPR's available companions, please email Michelle at happytailsrescue@ec.rr.com and an application will be sent to you.

Happy Tails Puppy Rescue requires prospective adoptive families to complete an adoption application. References are checked including vet reference checks.

Happy Tails Puppy Rescue is happy to hear from people interested in giving one of these wonderful dogs a responsible loving forever home. Please remember that puppies become deeply attached to their families. They enjoy sharing every aspect of their family's life.

Our adoption donation of $175 helps pay for costs associated with spaying or neutering, vaccinations and tests, parasite control, and shelter fees. This amount includes a non-refundable application donation of $25 that must be received before your application can be processed. This amount covers the costs incurred by the rescue in processing the application and does not guarantee approval for adoption.

All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. All dogs are up to date on vaccines and on heartworm preventative, and flea/tick preventative.

Upon entering the rescue, the dogs are tested and treated (if necessary) for intestinal worms. These worms are highly contagious and the dog may contract these worms again at a later date. The rescue will test and treat again while in foster care only if the dog is symptomatic. Adoptive families are encouraged to further test and treat at their expense if their veterinarians recommend it.

Please note: we are volunteers, not professional dog trainers or students of animal behavior. Descriptions are opinions only and are used as a guide to place the dog in the most appropriate home.

After adoption, we are available to assist and advise our adoptive families in any way we can. Obedience training is recommended.

If for any reason your adoption doesn't work out, we require that you return the dog to us.

The adoption donation is NOT refundable should you return the dog, as it will have already been spent caring for the dog you adopt and/or other dogs in need.

Minimum requirements for adopting from Happy Tails Puppy Rescue are:

Willingness to participate in training and socialization;

Willingness to provide responsible dog ownership and supervision;

Demonstrated financial stability;

Age 21 or older.
