5th Grade Essay Contest
HTAS works with the Columbia Public School District in offering our Happy Tails Animal Sanctuary/Columbia Public Schools 5th Grade Essay Contest each year. We open the contest up to all 5th graders in the area to participate in our essay contest. Our theme each year is "What My Pet Means To Me." We have been working with the school district since 2001. Each winner is recognized in their respective school during a presentation of the certificates.
Nursing Home Visits
HTAS periodically visits various nursing homes within Columbia and the surrounding area. We enjoy sharing animal welfare knowledge with the clients and they love interacting with the animals.
