apl resuceHappy Trails Assists Portage APL in Mass Rescue of More Than 120 Animals

In the midst of this deplorable situation, we can’t help but feel a pride in the combined efforts it took to facilitate this rescue. Representatives from the Portage County APL, Bird Nerds from Canton and Happy Trails worked together seamlessly to save these animals from their situation of severe neglect. If only we could give the details….
Please help by donating toward the care of the nine horses we rescued from this situation. The court case could take months and we must provide care until such time as the horses as well as the hens and roosters are release for adoption.

jolie-bread_smallContribute to Happy Trails Animal Friendly (vegan) Recipe Book

Do you have an awesome vegan entree, snack, dessert or smoothie (or anything else, even dog treats!) recipe worthy of sharing? What about a non-vegan one? If you do, let me know!   Of course, this book is going to have strictly animal friendly (vegan) recipes, but our editor is a pro at substituting animal products if you need any assistance what so ever.

This is completely optional, but with a donation of a recipe, Happy Trails is asking if you would be able to donate $2.00 to cover the cost of printing. Also, we would love for donors to send in quotes with their recipes, about your love for animals, passion for plant based living, or how Happy Trails has changed your life – And we will put these quotes on your recipe page!

Submit all recipes to Happy Trails c/o Melissa DelSignore 5623 New Milford Rd, Ravenna, OH 44266 or via email to [email protected] If emailing, please make donations via our Donate page.

20140617_084350_resultExciting News — Our 2014 Tour Season is Underway

In the event you missed the open house, you can still visit the sanctuary and check out our progress with the new construction (three new buildings!), meet the rescued animals, learn how you can help stop animal abuse, find out how the sanctuary operates and what services we provide. Visit our Tours page for more information.  Dress comfortably and plan to get dirty — you will most likely receive a wet, slobbery horse kiss or a soft but muddy pig nose on your shoe or a wooly sheep leaning up against your leg. Adults are $20; youth ages 6 to 17 are $10; kids ages 5 and under are free. Call the office at 330-296-5914 to schedule your tour!


concrete-rearing horse_smallUnique Concrete Statuary Still Available at Happy Trails

Happy Trails summer fundraiser, selling concrete yard decor such as planters, bird baths, welcome signs, memorial stones and statuary, is going great!  Thanks to everyone who purchased a concrete item to help support the animals. Though we have sold a ton (probably a very accurate statement) so far, we do still have a nice selection of concrete items to choose from.  Feel free to stop by and browse through the concrete statuary display — it’s pretty impressive. Store hours are Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri and Sat from 9am to 5pm and on Sundays 11am to 4pm.  Closed on Wednesdays.  View a sampling of our selection!
