Tails From Above

Holiday Giving Program

Each holiday season, Happy Tails collects donations to help families in need of assistance around our community. These donations help ease the burden of any hard times that have fallen upon them, and make it easier for families to keep their beloved pets in the homes where they belong, and out of animal shelters. Every year, our Giving Tree graces our lobbies with ornaments that spell out specific needs that sponsor families may have, whether it is cat and dog food, or grocery gift cards. Members of the Happy Tails and Tiny Tails family donate, and we then disperse donated items to sponsor families who have completed our application process.

If you know of a family in need that is struggling to provide for their pet please contact

Pet Food Pantry

Located at our 130 St John Street location, our company assists over 20 families in need within our community with essentials to provide for their pets. We understand that hard times fall upon everyone and we want to ease the burden by offering cat food, dog food and kitty litter to individuals in our community.
Donations can be delivered to either our 119 Bishop Street location, or to 130 St John Street.

If you know of a family who may benefit from this type of assistance, please call Tiny Tails at (207) 871-5959

Champ’s Fund

Owner, Frank Billings opened Happy Tails in 2003 largely because of his young chocolate lab puppy, Champ. Champ was a funny guy with a huge personality, and graced the play yards for years. Unfortunately, Champ passed away after losing the battle to bone cancer in 2015. In his memory, Champ’s Fund was created to assist families in the Portland area with vet bills for their beloved pets. No one should ever have to make the difficult decision to sacrifice vital veterinary care for his or her pets because of financial hardship.

Please email if you or someone you know is in need of assistance with veterinary care.

Donations can be made to Champ’s Fund through our PayPal account
