Happy Tails Pet Rescue

14 Pine Road, Hudson, NH, 03051

Rescue/Shelter Description

Happy Tails Pet Rescue is a small adoption program in Massachusetts and New Hampshire run entirely by volunteers who have joined together to save unwanted and abandoned cats. We were founded to take in animals from other rescues and shelters who were going to be euthanized as a result of behavior problems, overpopulated shelters, or financial burden. We also accept surrenders from families who can no longer care for their pets, and work with other rescues to accept animals from hoarding and closed MA and NH animal rescue and breeding operations.

Areas Served

We have cats located at our main facility in Hudson, Chelmsford PetSmart, Plaistow PetSmart, foster home and our newest location is at Cat's Kingdom in Manchester.

Adoption Instructions

First step would be to complete an application on our website. Once the application is processed and approved someone will reach out to set up a time to meet our available kitty's.

Round faced Amelia is about 3 years old. She had a very rough start to life and has been through so much, therefore she is very timid and skeptical of humans. Amelia now plays with the laser and with toys when she thinks humans aren’t watching. However she is still scared of humans for the most part. Believe it or not, this is progress from when she first came into our care (hiding 24/7, not knowing how to play, when her next meal was, and never feeling consistently secure and safe). We know that with the right adopter who can provide consistent and patient care for Amelia that she’ll blossom into the confident happy girl that is buried beneath her traumatic past.    Amelia very much loves her other kitty roommates, and they’ve helped her tremendously. They’re her therapy cats, if you will. Because of this, we want Amelia to get adopted with one of her roommates. (Sophia, Kenzi, Konrad, wisp, Stache, or Millie)   While we can’t undo Amelia’s past, we can and will continue to help build her confidence and search tirelessly for the right family for her. She has been in our care far too long and gets overlooked because of her shyness and care required to help her adjust.   Please reach out to our adoption coordinator to hear how other cats like Amelia have made complete 180s with their new families.   show less

Hi, I’m Clover, and I am no ordinary cat. I am seeking a loving home where I can be appreciated for who I am, I am more than just a pretty face: my loving nature and extreme intelligence will capture your heart… My story is a sad one. Last year I was surrendered to Happy Tails after my original owner (who called me Winston) could no longer meet my special needs. She loved me but her circumstances changed drastically over the months, and the little Bengal kitten she pampered during the initial Covid lockdown quickly grew into a lonely adult cat: one who couldn’t bear being alone when she had to go back to the office. More recently, I’ve been fostered by a wonderful couple: two people who love me VERY much and speak fluent Bengal cat. Initially, I was terrified of the cats that already lived there and to this day, I startle easily. Even hearing cars outside the window can cause me to bolt in terror. I can’t help it: I’m a sensitive boy. As time passed on, I grew to love my foster parents. They read books to me so I could get used to their voices. I realized slowly they were here only to help me- and they were so kind to me!  They have calming music in my room, and they even give me fun puzzle toys to play with. I love them and love getting pets, playing with toys, racing around like a little maniac on my giant Hamster wheel, and eating yummy treats. Unfortunately, I DON’T like the other cats at their house no matter how much my foster mama tries to tell me it’s okay.  I need a home where I am the beloved one and only, with no other pets or little kids around. Kids are scary, sorry not sorry!   Like most Bengals, I bond closely with my humans once I get my bearings. I need constant attention, gentle reassurance, patience, a good sense of humor, and plenty of exercises. Do you work from home? I’d be the perfect home office companion and I promise I won’t micromanage. Okay, maybe once I’m settled in, I can rearrange all your files for you, just kidding, I’ll be your very best friend in the entire world once you have my trust. ·        Sound like your dream cat? Here are a few more fun facts about me. I LOVE Amazon Music’s playlists of calming kittycat tunes, Rachel Ray & Jackpot cat treats, puzzle toys, and a regular routine to boost my confidence. Wet food is YUMMY, and good for male cat urinary health, a GIANT litter box (I like to stretch those long legs of mine!) I am also learning Clicker Training and it’s been great fun. ·        Things I DON’T like - other cats or dogs (they stink!), being held (yeah, that’s a big old NOPE from me, but I WILL crawl into your lap when and only when I am good and ready), and being bored. When I am bored, I have the Bengal tendency to boldly explore places you won’t likely want me exploring. Baby locks on the cabinets are suggested.  Bengal cats like me are no ordinary cats, to learn more about what makes us unique, click here: https://www.dailypaws.com/cats-kittens/cat-breeds/bengal, https://www.rover.com/blog/bengal-cats/ (minus the fact that I need to be an only). There’s plenty more on the internet 😊 My foster mamo loves me a lot and will be happy to chat with potential adopters and answer all your questions: she wants me to be happy living my best life, even if it can’t be with her. I need a patient foster with a strong preference given to potential foster to adopt situation, as I’ve been through so many changes in my short life.   show less
