Building a healthy partnership between children and animals


Happy Tails is all about saving animal lives, keeping kids safe and preventing animal cruelty. We participate with animal shelters and rescue organizations around the country helping families with young children start off on the right paw by including our book, Love Me Gently; A Kid’s Guide for Man’s Best Friend in adoption packets to help with the transition of having a pup at home.

The children love the books. They so lovingly demonstrate how to care for a dog and people and teach empathy.
