State Finds No Animal Welfare Violations at Happy Tails

Following allegations raised by Advanced Animal Health Center in Rock Falls, the Illinois Department of Agriculture inspected Happy Tails Humane Society in late October and found no violations of the Animal Welfare Act.  Department of Agriculture inspector Ron Settles found all animals to be “healthy and happy” and the facility to be in good sanitary condition.

Hey everyone! My name is Prince and I live up to it.
I’m a two year old, sixty-eight pound Mastiff who is currently at Happy Tails Animal Shelter in Rock Falls.
I am a delight by anyone’s standards. I’m quiet, gentle, congenial, calm, well behaved, and modest. I am good with kids, other dogs, and adults who are loving.
Come see me and I’ll show you what a gentleman I am. Hope to see you soon.
