Hi my name is Katie!
I'm a VERY nice girl looking for a family to spend the rest of my life with. I am affectionate and a total sweetheart. I will do anything for cuddles and kisses. I like to be wherever my people are. I enjoy going for walks and being outside. I'm still learning how to walk on a leash but I love to practice and I am getting better every day. I know how to sit, lay down, stay, and am working on my manners. My foster mom tells me, I am doing a very good job at learning, and I like the treats. I am GREAT with kids and love having them around to play with. I would prefer a home without cats as I tend to be curious and scare them away. Men sometimes make me nervous, but I warm up quickly once I get to know them. I love playing with squeaky toys and my light up ball. I am a happy go lucky girl who always has a smile on her face and a wagging tail. Sometimes my tail doesn't wag, when I hurt my back,  (I came into the rescue with a spinal infection), but when I take my pills I am better in no time. I also have a little deformity on my toe, the vet man said not to worry. If I play too hard sometime I will hold it up, but I am fine and it doesn't hurt. 

 I hope to find a family who will spoil me with unconditional love and attention, and to look past my disabilities. Could that family be with you?

I hope to meet you soon.

Prior to adoption Katie will be spayed, vaccinated, health checked, heartworm/lymes tested and microchipped

Adoption Fee $300

About Happy Tails Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Happy Tails Rescue is a non profit, 501c3, no kill small group of strictly volunteers who are trying to contribute by finding good loving homes for the many homeless animals that are out there. Along with most rescue groups, we all believe there is an enormous problem (not only in the state of Minnesota, but in our country) with pet overpopulation. We would simply like to do our part in trying to resolve this problem.

We could use your help in many areas, including foster care, providing transport for animals, help at fundraising and adoption events and donated pet supplies and financial support. There are many other things to help with, please give us a call or send an email. We'd love to hear from you!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter, we are a network of volunteer foster homes and there are 2 ways you can meet the wonderful dogs we have who are looking for homes.

We generally have dog adoption events on the 2nd Saturday of the month at PETsMART in Richfield (494 and Lyndale) and on the 4th Saturday of the month at PETsMART in Maple Grove (94/Hemlock Ln). However, our schedule will sometimes vary when special events conflict, so please check our website at of time to confirm that the dog you are interested in will be there to meet you.

Many of our cats stay at the Richfield Petsmart and are available for showing anytime that Petsmart is open. Our wonderful friends at the Richfield Petsmart will be happy to assist you with the adoption process.

Our dogs and cats are also available for private showing. Please call us at 612-588-0188 to confirm our adoption event schedule or to arrange a private showing.

Our Adoption Process...

When adopting a pet through us, we ask that you go through a short screening process with one of our volunteers. we consider the adoption of our dogs and cats to caring forever homes to be our primary responsibility. We work very hard to ensure that we are matching our pets with the appropriate home, for both the animals and the adoptive family. All of our dogs and cats are indoor pets and are not to be left outside unattended, or running loose. You will be asked to sign a legal and binding contract upon adoption and in some cases will include Obedience Training.
