"Happy Tales Humane was founded in 1996 to provide the area with an animal shelter that does not use euthanasia to make room for additional animals. HTH operated as a “virtual shelter,” housing all animals in dedicated foster homes, until 2000 when a shelter for the cats was opened in The Factory at Franklin. All of the dogs in HTH’s adoption program are still kept in foster homes, though the goal is to one day open a shelter where both cats and dogs can be housed on-site. HTH is a private, non-profit animal shelter with our own Board of Directors. All of our funding is through tax-deductible donations."
