Hello, my name is Carmine! Pictures don't do my beautiful fur justice! It's a salt and pepper grey with black patches all over. (It's fancy name is merle) I love people and other dogs so much! Cats are fun to chase so it would be best if I went to a home without them. I love walks and running and playing too!

I came from a shelter down in Tulsa Oklahoma all the way up to Minnesota. The shelters and rescues down there are very crowded and I am so excited that Happy Tails Rescue saved me and gave me a foster home to live in! I hope I find a family to give me all the love I could ever want, I would be so grateful!

Prior to adoption Carmine will be spayed, vaccinated, health checked, and microchipped.

Adoption Fee $300.00

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 www.htr.petfinder.com 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.

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.
