Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary

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

Happy Tails is a non-profit, no-kill animal sanctuary dedicated to helping find safe sanctuary for abandoned and abused animals. At our Adoption Center, we showcase adult cats waiting to be adopted into a "forever home." We also showcase cats and kittens at the PetSmart store located at the corner of Arden Way and Watt Avenue.

To help ensure the safety of the animals we've placed in new homes, it is important that we follow up with customers who adopted a new cat or dog from Happy Tails. You can help out by placing a call to the customer to make sure the cat or dog has not escaped the home and to check on the well-being and transition period for both the person and the animal, and report the news back to Happy Tails. Our Follow-Up crew has a direct impact on making sure these special animals as well as their new family have a well-deserved happy ending.

You can do this from your own home. All you need is a phone and email access. A confidential list of customers who adopted an animal is provided to you via email, you make the call, then report back via email to the Adoption Follow-Up Coordinator.

If you are interested, the first step is to attend new volunteer orientation. You may sign up for orientation at click Volunteer tab and Getting Started Volunteering to sign up. If dates are full, please contact to go on the wait list in case of a cancellation.

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.
