What we do

Rescue

We save horses from being slaughtered or sent overseas to the prevention of euthanizing dogs at shelters due to overcrowding or inexperienced behavioral assessments.

Rehome

We want to ensure that both the potential adopter and the animal they are interested is the right fit and a safe environment. We do this by performing home visits, meet and greets and asking a series of questions.

Rehab

For those that have medical conditions, we give them water therapy or laser therapy to help them recover from their injury. Those that need behavior correction are trained by our staff. The goal is to provide pain free experience and to find a forever home.

Retreat to a quiet place

IMG_7365

We all know the last two years has been stressful for not only Adults but Children to. So we are opening our doors this year to allow everyone to enjoy a mental break and get away from it all. 

You’ll be able to enjoy the different parts of the property like: 

Walking some of our paths on the property 
Have a picnic at our beach, by the creek 
Petting and/or giving treats to friendly horses 

Again this retreat is unique in that you get to hear all the sounds of nature and be with the animals.

Happy Tails Animal Sanctuary 501c3

Happy Tails Animal Sanctuary is a organization unique not like any other. 

We sit in the beautiful valley of Woodstock where there are hills on each side of property. It keeps the sound to a minimum but also the privacy helps keep the animals at the sanctuary more calm. 

Our property if fenced and gated to keep the animals safe from harm. This allows us to have days where the animals (dogs) are allowed to run the entire property or certain sections. Safety is extremely important to our animals and to ensure no harm comes to them. These types of activities allow the animals to have tremendous exercise and to have a good night sleep.
