Our Mission

Happy Tales Ranch and Rescue is a state regulated, no-kill, nonprofit 501(c)(3) rescue located in Central Iowa since 2014.  We are 100% volunteer based, ALL donation go towards the care of the animals.  We are inspected by the State of Iowa.

Our mission is to rescue, provide a safe haven, and care for abandoned animals until a permanent home can be found.  We concentrate on special-needs felines, rehabilitation, and rescue from small pounds and shelters.   We promote spaying and neutering and assist in paying for it when possible.


Sponsor a Feline for a Month

Can’t adopt but want to help, sponsor a feline for a month.  It is $10 for each cat and that helps us buy food, litter and treats.  Your sponsor will be on facebook and on our website homepage.  You may use the paypal button(in the comments please put who is to be sponsored)  or contact us with questions.  happytalesiowa@gmail.com       Know someone hard to buy a gift for, sponsor a feline in their name.  We will send them a card with a picture of who is sponsored.  ( We currently need 50 cats sponsored each month to pay for their food and litter)
