Our Story

Happy Tails Pet Stores was created by April Moloney because she had a dream to offer earth friendly, healthy products that would enrich the lives of all pets. We have a goal to make sure that products are not tested on animals and that most of the products we sell are created in the United States so that we help put people back to work in the USA.

I Love Pets and have owned many animals, fish, turtles and birds over my lifetime. My first memory is of our family dog Cupid (born on Valentine’s Day). She was just a cute little furball then. She was such a healthy dog that she lived 21 years! Most of my pets have lived longer than their life expectancy and that is our goal for your pet.

I currently have 2 dogs that are rescues. A poodle named Zipper whom I inherited from my Mom when she passed away and Boss. Boss was brought into the family by my son Joey. Some of his friends were moving and had no plan as what to do with Boss. I was only going to only keep him for the weekend and then take him to a no kill shelter but I fell in love with him and that was that! I do not believe in Euthanizing animals because they haven’t been adopted that is just too horrible for words!

I have 3 male Betta fish that I love so much. They are like little dogs in fishbowls as each one has their own personality and tricks they do. They all are different kinds of Betta. Horton (shhh don’t tell the others but he is my favorite) is an Elephant Ear, Twilight is a Crown Tail and finally Aquina is a Double Tail. I have 3 females, 2 in a share a tank Camilla & Sirivannavari, and Juliet who was too aggressive for a sorority so she lives in a 5 gallon. They have all come with different illnesses and I have “doctored” them up and they are all healthy. They are all beautiful and special in their own way. I also have 3 Koi that live in a pond and hopefully soon I will be adding aquatic turtles to the pond from a rescue.

I believe rescuing animals whether from a shelter, or a lost dog or from a horrible small cup! There are many rescues that offer pets of all kinds for adoption. Adoption is the best option and I do not believe in Puppy Mills or breeders who do not have their future dog’s health at interest that goes for cat breeders and fish breeders too! The best thing you could do is adopt a pet and give them a bright and happy future in your home and heart.
