Happy Tails Dog Rescue is a foster-based registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing, vetting, and rehoming dogs from kill shelters in Southern Florida. We are a husband and wife team, together with a small team of volunteers who rescue, vet dogs, and rehome dogs who are about to be euthanized. It is our goal to provide the necessary veterinary care, grooming, and attention they may need to ultimately place them in forever homes.
The inspiration for Happy Tails Dog Rescue came about after my husband and I rescued our dog, Sophie, who was 24 hours away from being euthanized at MDAS. She was considered "undesirable" due to the fact she was an older dog in desperate need of grooming, costly dental work, and lots of love and attention to heal from the trauma of being abandoned on the streets. We called her our "angel dog". Sophie's story is a reminder to us that we "can't judge a book by it's cover".
We have self-funded most of our rescue efforts but have also received many generous donations. We have raised monies through fundraising events and have created a sponsorship program where individuals and/or businesses can choose to sponsor a dog. TLC Animal Hospital (and Dr. Tanis Whyte) in Delray Beach has been tremendously compassionate to our cause, donating medications and offering discounts on many veterinary services performed on our rescued dogs. We are very grateful to TLC Animal Hospital and Dr. Whyte for their continued support.
All of our rescued dogs are cared for by volunteer fosters who are part of our foster network. If you are interested in meeting any of our rescued dogs please contact us directly and we will schedule a meet-n-greet with the foster currently caring for the dog you are interested in potentially adopting.
