About Us

​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.
