Event Details

Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary is a volunteer run and cage free 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. 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 twice a month. You only need to attend one session.

Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary

No Kill, Volunteer Run, 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 cats and dogs 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. Additional cats plus kittens and dogs are cared for in our network of foster homes and are put up for adoption on the weekends at the PetSmart store near the corner of Watt Avenue and Arden Way.

As an almost all-volunteer organization, Happy Tails is grateful for the work of over 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 Corporation.
