Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary

I'm Cash...your man
I can't pick up the phone with my paws - can you?

To help ensure the continued support from our Sacramento area community, it is important that the public's first impression of Happy Tails be a positive one. You can help out by checking our voicemail system for new messages and providing help and information to our customers or referring the message to the appropriate volunteer. It's both an easy and interesting way to help the public, homeless animals and learn more about our organization!

You can do this from your own home. All you need is a phone, positive attitude, friendly and clear phone voice and email access. Retrieval of messages can be done during or at the end of the shift. This is a weekly assignment. The calls that come in are broken into 3 shifts per day. You will be checking and responding to messages left from one of these shifts once a week (or more if you wish).

If you are interested, please go to our website at our site, click Volunteer and then Getting Started to sign up for a New Volunteer Orientation meeting where you can learn more about our organization and how to get started helping animals. Thank you!

About Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary


6001 Folsom Boulevard, Sacramento, CA 95819, US

Mission Statement

Happy Tails is a no-kill facility dedicated to protecting and improving the lives of homeless and abused animals. Needy animals are rescued, nurtured, and provided shelter and medical care (including spaying and neutering) before being placed in loving homes or safe sanctuary. Happy Tails is also dedicated to educating the public about the joys and responsibilities of caring for these creatures whose lives also have value.


Happy Tails, Sacramento's first no-kill pet facility , was founded in 1993 by volunteers committed to a common goal: creating a safe haven for abandoned and abused animals. Happy Tails has grown to an organization with over 200 volunteers whose hard work resulted in the City's first cage-free adoption center for cats. We have continued to grow and on October 17, 2009 moved into the larger Patricia L. Holmes Adoption Center. In 2014, we also expanded the adjoining Zoe McCrea Feline Sanctuary for special case cats who are not yet "ready for prime time" (adoption).

Happy Tails cats and dogs come from many places...anywhere and everywhere that there are homeless or abused pets in need. We provide necessary veterinary care for these animals before placing them in our foster care or adoption system.

We continue to help fill many needs of our community, including:

  • providing temporary foster care for homeless and abandoned animals before placing them in safe, caring homes
  • providing continuing care for animals that cannot be placed in homes
  • encouraging spaying/neutering to break the uncontrolled reproductive cycle in these animals
  • promoting education in the humane and caring treatment of animals.

Federal and state tax authorities recognize Happy Tails as a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation.
