It all started with Zack.
dog that no one wanted, not even shelters or other rescue facilities. Weighing only 31 pounds with the worse case of heart worms we had ever seen, this emaciated Rottweiler tugged at our heart strings. We took him in, and with our love and treatment and his will to live, Zack beat the odds and lived a happy life for many more years. He became our first success story. Since then hundreds of sad stories have had happy endings. You see, we believe that all dogs are entitled to respect, compassion and quality of life.
Happy Endings Dog Rescue is a no-kill shelter, specializing in the rescue of large breed dogs, particularly Rottweilers and Pit Bulls. We provide our dogs with a stimulating environment, superior diet and excellent medical care while preparing them to enter the community. Our goal is to have them become members of loving and responsible households. Our outreach programs encourage volunteer involvement while educating the public and enriching the lives of dogs and citizens alike.
At Happy Endings all dogs have a home until they are adopted.
We never euthanize an animal to make room for another. We find new homes with caring families as soon as possible. Some stay with us only a matter of days or weeks, others require a longer period of care and rehabilitation before they are able to go to a new home. Unless they have an incurable disease, they have a home at Happy Endings Rescue until we find them a permanent, loving family.
