To provide rescue and adoption services to cats and dogs.
Happy Tails Pet Rescue is a small adoption program in Massachusetts and New Hampshire run entirely by volunteers who have joined together to save unwanted and abandoned cats and dogs.
We were founded to take in animals from other rescues and shelters who were going to be euthanized as a result of behavior problems, overpopulated shelters, or financial burden. We also accept surrenders from families who can no longer care for their pets, and work with other rescues to accept animals from hoarding and closed MA and NH animal rescue and breeding operations.

There are many opportunities: If you can't help out at the shelter, you can still foster a cat or dog or help with adoption events. Volunteer coordinators are super-responsive: http://www.animal-adoptions.org/Website/Pages/volunteer-at-pets-in-need.html
