Happy Tails Resale Shop

The Happy Tails Resale Shop is located in an unfinished portion of our shelter directly across the porch from the main entrance. It has been operating since November 8, 2014!

Store Hours:
Every Saturday
8:30 am - 3:00 pm CST

*Happy Tails will be also be open 2 additional days on October 8 and 9, from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm as part of the VHS Fall-ternative Festival! Come shop with us on Thursday & Friday in addition to our regular Saturday hours on October 10!*

The shop is entirely volunteer-run so that all proceeds can benefit the VHS. It raises around $60,000 for our animals every year! These unrestricted funds are truly lifesaving. Follow us on Facebook to see weekly previews of new items and any holiday- or weather-related closing announcements.

We are always seeking volunteers for Happy Tails. Available shifts are 8:15 am – 12 pm, and 12 pm – 3:15 pm on Saturdays. Sign up to work here!

For questions about volunteering in the resale shop, contact our Volunteer Coordinator!
