Adoption Events

PLEASE READ:  In cooperation with Petsmart Charities, adoption events have been suspended until further notice.  We will still be taking applications and doing meet and greets with approved families by private appointment.  Posted 3/22/2020

Happy Tails regularly hosts adoption events usually twice a month at the Petsmart located in Chandler, Arizona on Germann Road.


Please stop by to meet and greet our dogs that are available for adoption.  Only adopters that have had their references checked and home visits completed prior to the adoption events may expect to take their new family member home from an adoption event.  


Occasionally, Happy Tails will participate in other events across the valley. Below is a list of the current adoption events

Dear HTDR friends and family, ​
We are scaling back operations effective August 1st through October 1st. We will continue to do adoptions for the dogs currently in our care. As our fosters become ready for their forever homes, we will feature them on our website, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts. Thank you so much for your continued support of our rescue!

Love, the Happy Tails Team
