Happy Tails Farm Sanctuary is a charitable organization founded in Kingston, Ontario by Carla and Harold Moore in 2013.
Providing sanctuary and rehabilitation to animals, educating youth and bringing our community together are the hallmarks of our mission. Through the animal residents we endeavour to build community partnerships offering a safe and inclusive environment to school and community groups, children with special needs, disadvantaged children as well as to our ill and injured military veterans. We continue to identify needs within our communities and strive to effectively meet those needs through innovation and collaboration in our programs.
Happy Tails Farm Sanctuary is built on 3 pillars – a love for all animals, education and community. In 2017 we transformed Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge to Happy Tails Farm Sanctuary and carried out their work of rescuing animals and providing education programs to youth. Over the past 6 years we have grown our small animal rescue to a community outreach organization dedicated to providing sanctuary to at risk animals, military veterans and providing humane education programs for the public.
In 2019, Carla Reilly, Executive Director, won the Inspiring Women of Kingston Award for Community Trailblazing. This prestigious recognition is awarded annually to "a woman who has greatly contributed to the evolution of our community through her volunteer and community work. She inspires others with her character and skills, and is a pioneer who has opened doors for many. Her contributions rise above and beyond others expectations to enrich the lives of others."
