Event Details

Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization in Sacramento, California dedicated to helping abandoned or abused cats and dogs find future homes or safe sanctuary using a no-kill philosophy. (Due to space limitations our pet sanctuary is limited to cats, dogs are kept in foster care until adoption). We seek new volunteers who are reliable and dedicated to helping animals in need.

To become a volunteer, you must first attend a New Volunteer Orientation meeting to learn about our organization, programs and services, volunteering guidelines and opportunities. A Volunteer Application and information on how to get started in various roles will be provided to you during the meeting.

Adult Program (Ages 18+)

New Volunteer Orientation meetings for the Adult Program last approximately 2 hours. Meetings are typically held three times a month. You only need to attend one session.

Hosted by Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary

No Kill, All Volunteer, Cage Free

Founded in 1993, Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary is a no-kill animal rescue group dedicated to
protecting and improving the lives of homeless and abused animals throughout the
Sacramento area. Needy animals are rescued, nurtured, and provided shelter and
medical care (including spaying and neutering) before being placed in safe, loving,
permanent homes. After adoption, Happy Tails animals may be returned at any time, no
questions asked.

Adult cats (one year and older) are up for adoption at the Happy Tails “Patricia L. Holmes
Adoption Center” located at 6001 Folsom Blvd. in East Sacramento. Cats, kittens and
often dogs are also cared for in our network of foster homes, and put up for adoption on
the weekends at the PetSmart at Watt and Arden.

As an all-volunteer organization, Happy Tails is run by more than 200 dedicated
volunteers. Assistance programs help the pets of elderly, homeless and low-income
individuals. Through our extensive feral cat program, Happy Tails maintains several
altered, healthy feral cat colonies. This effort is one more step in helping to solve the
Sacramento area’s serious pet overpopulation problem.

Funding includes monetary donations from our dedicated and generous benefactors, as
well as grants, bequests, fundraising events and adoption fees. Federal and state tax
authorities recognize Happy Tails as a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Public Benefit
