Wish List

Thanks to contributions by so many Happy Trails supporters, we are able to give the rescued animals the very best in food, shelter, and medical care.  Without the many generous donations from caring individuals who are choosing to make a difference, the services provided by Happy Trails would not be possible.  Listed below are a few of the many items we need (wish lists updated February 2015):
