Community Involvement in Greensboro

We may be a bustling emergency animal hospital, but we also use our time and resources to help our community in other ways. We support local shelters, sponsor adoption programs, and do a lot for wildlife in the area, too.

Ways We’ve Participated

Below are just a few of the things we’ve done in our community to benefit animals and people, and we look forward to doing more!

  • Happy Tails was the first hospital in the Triad to sponsor Babe’s Bark in the Park event for the Greensboro Grasshoppers; all proceeds from this event went towards supporting local animal rescues.
  • We proudly sponsored Grimsley High School in the NewBridge Bank Football and Cheerleading Jamboree; all proceeds were given directly to participating schools.
  • We had the opportunity to sponsor local Girl Scout Troop 40172 for their Tails to Trails dog walk and foster care awareness event. This event helped to raise awareness about the need for quality foster families for the many homeless animals in Greensboro. Troop 40172 was able to use item and money donations to collect much-needed supplies for the local animal shelter.
  • Happy Tails was a proud sponsor of the “Footlong Weiner” event in 2014, with all proceeds going towards helping Dachshunds in need of medical treatment via Almost Home Dachshund Rescue Society, and Dachshund Rescue of North America.
  • We continue to be a proud sponsor of the “Bark in the Boro” event, which is held annually by the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department.
  • We’re also the original sponsor of the “Canine Capers” event, and are happy to continue the tradition. In 2013, the Oak Ridge Bark Park was developed and has been a wonderful place for dog owners to exercise and socialize their pets. All proceeds go towards maintaining the park.
  • Happy Tails is one of the original sponsors of the WFMY-TV “2 the Rescue” adoption show, which launched in 2009. It proved such a success in helping animals find their forever homes that we have remained a primary sponsor to this day.
