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.

We follow practices and guidelines established by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), and the Association of Shelter Veterinarians (ASV). We are a member of the Society of Animal Welfare Administrators (SAWA) and the Illinois Animal Welfare Federation (IAWF).
Don't Miss the Egg Hunt April 1!
Every year we host an Egg Hunt to promote the shelter and give the kids of the community an opportunity to visit with the animals, learn how to care for animals, and learn to adopt and not shop. The kids also play games and the best part is the Egg Hunt: Tons of candy!
The hunt is for kids ages 2-4, 5-7, and 8-10. The registration fee is $3. Registration starts at 5:00 p.m., with the hunt beginning at 5:30. Kids only--no pets please.
