My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

To speed up the adoption process, please complete our Pre-Adoption Application.

Hi my name is Lyra. When I first came to my foster family I weighed 83lbs! I've lost about 10lbs but the vet says I should lose at least 10 more. I need slow intros to people and other dogs. When I first meet people and other dogs I don't like them all up in my face, I want to check them out before they check me out. I'm getting better on my introductions! Once I get to know you I love to go for walks and play with toys or wrestle with my dog friends. My foster family started noticing me limping after I arrived so I went in for some x-rays. Turns out I have hip dysplasia which means I need to have weight and activity management and also some supplements to help. I LOVE to go for short walks or just sit and chew on my toys. I know to go potty outside. I go in my kennel really well. I love to go for car rides. My foster family tells me I'm a really sweet girl. 
Do you think you could be my forever family? 

Prior to adoption I will be altered, vaccinated, health checked, dewormed, and micro-chipped.

Adoption Fee $250 +taxes/fees

If you would like to meet me please fill out a pre-adoption application at

Happy Tails Adoption Center is open on Sundays from 12-5pm. We are located at 7331 Baker St NE, Fridley. Dogs are at events based on the availability of their foster family. Please fill out a pre-adoption application so we know you are interested in meeting/adopting one of our animals.

Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.

The breeds of our dogs and cats are a 'best guess.' We often do not know what mix they are and have to base it on what we think they look like, and base it on breeds often found in the area they came from. Most of our dogs who have gotten DNA tests done are 4-10 breeds mixed together. Because their breed mix is a guess we cannot guarantee a 'full grown size' of many of our younger animals.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

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.

Go meet their 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 at the adoption center in Fridley from 12:00pm CST to 5:00pm every Sunday. However, our schedule will sometimes vary, so please check our website at to confirm that the dog you are interested is still available. Dogs in attendance will vary on foster family availability. You can check our facebook page prior to the event to see who may 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.

More about this rescue

Happy Tails Rescue is a non profit, 501c3, no kill small group of 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!
