Happy Tails No-Kill Animal Shelter, Inc.


Last updated 08.18.2013

About This Website.....

While Happy Tails works toward building its shelter, this web page is helping to find homes for animals who are lost, unwanted, homeless, or abused. We are also setting up an e-mail network of individuals who are willing to foster animals while they await their "forever" homes. If you are willing to become part of our foster network, PLEASE contact us with this request.
ADOPT A PET. Or help one get adopted. It gets an animal out of the cold, puts food in his belly and in turn, feeds our souls, as well.

If you can't find a pet from our list, look in other local shelters, or maybe, even, in your own back yard. There are too many homeless animals, and they need our help. Click the button below to see our list of adoptable pets.

See who's been ADOPTED from Happy Tails!
Any pets found, adopted through, or listed on our web site are the sole responsibility of the adopting parties. Happy Tails No-Kill Animal Shelter, Inc., listing animals as a member of PetFinder, accepts no responsibility for any liability or for any injury or damages to any person or property caused by any listed animal, as well as any cause of action, claims, suits or demands whatsoever that may arise as a result of such injury or damage.

Who We Are.....

In the Spring of 2003, a dedicated group of animal lovers met to discuss the possibility of building and running a no-kill animal shelter in Bradford County, Pennsylvania. By the end of that year, we were incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and are currently a member of the Central Bradford Chamber of Commerce and Towanda Business Association.

Our Mission.....

Our mission is to educate pet owners and the general public, teach humane principles and responsible pet ownership to promote harmonious relationships and to end all animal cruelty. With our no-kill philosophy we will provide a safe haven for abused and homeless pets in the geographical region that offers these animals options for a better life.

Our Goals.....

Come Visit the Site...

In November 2003, we purchased an idyllic, six-acre plot of land on Rt. 6, about 3.2 miles west of Rt. 220 (between Towanda and Troy, PA). We are trying to raise funds to build a state-of-the-art shelter which will reflect our philosophy of respect and dignity for all animals, and provide a warm, caring environment for them while they await their new homes. The building will be designed to be friendly to people, animals, and the environment. Look for our bright yellow sign, purchased with a generous donation from Paula Bainbridge of Athens, PA. If you would like to be a part of this exciting work your tax-deductible contribution can be made to the address below.

Moose's Fund.....

Moose's Fund is a special reserve, public-supported, medical fund, earmarked to cover costs typically incurred in an emergency medical situation where there is an animal in immediate need, and the guardian is unable to purchase the required emergency services. The funds can be used to cover such costs as: emergency vet calls, x-rays, surgery, medications, rehabilitation expenses, and other necessary medical treatments.

Happy Tails Rescue, Owego.....

Board members, Ken Willet and Don Woodard, have been working in Trap-Neuter-Release/Rescue, in Owego, since the early 1990s. In 2009, they recognized a significant increase in homeless cats and kittens in Owego, and began a community-based project to get it under control. In 2010, Happy Tails created a fund for their efforts, offering community members a way to make tax-deductible donations for this local project.

To date, Owego's Trap-Neuter-Return/Rescue group has vetted over 550 cats since its inception (2010). We offer our T-N-R/R services outside Owego, as needed, and as funds allow. Feral cats are fixed, ears notched, and returned to their outside homes. Sweet ones are placed, whenever possible - directly, or fostered and then placed, as soon as possible. Minimally, for the friendly, homeless cats we must return to the outdoors, we try to arrange a caregiver, to ensure they get food and possibly shelter, on the worst days, until we can place them. We have close to a 100% placement of these friendly strays. The number of Owego supporters and volunteers continues to grow annually. The number of cats fixed and placed each month also continues to increase.
