What's Your Special Talent?
Many people think that being a volunteer at Happy Tails means feeding
and cleaning cats and dogs. It does. But it also means so much more.
We need volunteers with all sorts of skills: information technology,
typing, filing, photography, maintenance and repair . . . pretty much
anything that ever gets done in an office or a building and then some!
Happy Tails operates Whiteside County's only animal shelter. We are a
limited-intake, no-kill facility that shelters and cares for stray and
abandoned dogs and cats until they are adopted into loving, permanent
homes. We promote pet adoption and humane education. Happy Tails is a
501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
