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.

If you visit Happy Tails in Rock Falls, I’m going to expect you to come see me in room 12!

My name is Precious and I live up to my name. Once I’m comfortable, I’ll give you more love than you can handle. I really like the other cats in my room, but I think I might like your family and your house even more.

So come on in and let me charm you. See you soon.
