Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary

2 Feral Cats Snuggle
Feral Cats are Beautiful, too!

We are looking for adult volunteers who can help clean in our cage free building that houses feral and semi feral cats, as well as help socialize some of the semi feral cats which increases their chances for adoption. You will make a critical difference for this group of special cats who due to unusual circumstances could not return to their feral colony. Duties include cleaning of litterboxes, and providing fresh food and water, and general maintenance tasks.

Be amongst great cats and volunteers who are thankful for your help!

If you are interested, please respond to this posting. 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.


We'll work with your schedule.
