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 and helping our community in the process. At our Patricia L. Holmes 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 on line here. If dates are full, please contact to go on the wait list in case of a cancellation.
