Chester's Fund

We have started a fundraiser specifically for Chester's surgery. We are very optimistic for his future following this surgery, but we cannot do it without your help! Chester is such a loving boy, and he so deserves something nice after going through so much in his short life!

Happy Tails Happy Homes is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, so all donations are tax deductible! If you follow the link below, it will take you to his individual fundraising page.

Every little bit helps, and if you cannot donate yourself, please help us spread the word! Thank you from Chester and the entire crew here at HTHH.

Happy Tails Happy Homes is a no-kill nonprofit animal welfare organization dedicated to protecting and serving the well-being of animals and to fostering positive relationships between people and animals.
We have no shelter, no office, and no paid staff. All of the animals in our organization are in foster homes. All of the money donated to HTHH goes directly to the animals.
We are interested in saving all animals and understand that some may take longer to place than others. Our goal is to make the correct match, not just any match.
