Happy Tails Rescue of Minnesota, founded in 2005, is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals.  By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, trainers and boarding facilities, we are able to rescue dogs, cats, and other critters providing them with loving temporary care until a well-matched, carefully screened forever home can be found. We find beauty in the most incomprehensible places and the otherwise homely faces. It is our gift to see beyond the dirt, terror, sadness and the defeat to find the true soul that lies within. We are rescue.

KC came to Happy Tails scared, mangey, broken tail, and very underweight. It was our pleasure to help him get healthy and find his forever people.

Transport days are always a lot of work but our wonderful volunteers make it fun and help things run smoothly!


This year we experienced a lot of new ups and downs. Everyone working with animals has felt the pressure this year. All the adoptions and purchased animals last year lead to more families giving up pets this year. The shelters are all full throughout the country and surrender requests are coming in multiple times a day. We have an amazing team of staff and fosters that have stepped up to help as many animals as we could. As of the beginning of November we have had over 2,800 adoptions which includes dogs, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, and birds!  We are incredibly thankful to everyone who has made it all happen, especially the amazing foster families who open their hearts and homes to the animals that need help finding their adopters. Without them and our other volunteers and staff, we definitely wouldn't have been able to save so many animals! 


New Building freshly painted 


        This year we purchased a new building. We have out grown our current space. We are excited to start this renovation journey that will allow us to help more animals. We will have a full service clinic and lots of space indoors and our for rescue animals. 

     Happy Tails relies on donations to fund our programs.  Donations we receive today will go towards the new adoption center.  Supplying training, medical care, running educational programs, and feeding over 2,800 animals relies on generous donations from individuals. Please consider being part of the magic and donate today!
