Happy Tails Books and Bling Shirts

Happy Tails Books exists to encourage adoption and raise money for pet rescue organizations. Since 2009, we’ve donated more than $40,000 to our pet rescue partners.

Our goal is our Pet Rescue Partners’ success in saving the most lives possible. If we can help with that, we’re happy! We compile and edit the books we publish in-house, and we hand-craft all our vinyl and rhinestone designs, which allows us to keep our costs relatively low and our donations relatively high. We love our rescued dogs, we enjoy making items that support pet rescue, and we thrive on sending out donations from this website’s sales. Your patronage helps us save more lives. Thank you!

MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue was excited for the opportunity to partner with Happy Tails Books for a Rhinestone-o-Rama fundraiser. It was easy to promote the fundraiser through our newsletter and Facebook page. Our members love the hand-crafted rhinestone design HTB made specifically for our rescue, and we earned more than $350 in one month without having to spend a dime. - Jennifer Misfeldt, President, MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue

March Fundraiser:

Bling shirt color choicesThis Boston terrier shirt is our special fundraiser for the month of March!

Profits support MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue, an organization dedicated to improve the lives of Boston terriers in need. Please purchase a shirt and help us donate as much as possible back to this wonderful organization, which has saved the lives of more than 2,000 Boston terriers. MABTR will receive $5 per shirt, with an additional bonus of $100 if we sell more than 40 shirts during this pre-sale. Shirts will ship in the beginning of APRIL. FREE SHIPPING ON ORDER $40+.


This 100% cotton pre-shrunk shirt is as soft as your favorite T-shirt, the one that is so comfortable you could sleep in it. But you might want to wear this shirt out on the town instead in bed, since it’s covered in high-quality, long lasting rhinestones that will make you sparkle and shine!

Testimonial from Dr. Jane M. Biehl, author of the children’s book Here to Bump and Bump to Hear

Here to Bump and Bump to Hear

“One must be careful about stereotypes.  After several years of talking to writers and participating in a writing group, I was terrified about working with a real-life editor.

Until I worked with Happy Tails Books.

Kyla Duffy and her support staff are knowledgeable, caring, experienced, and a joy to work with. They transformed a novice like me into a “real” writer with an excellent book that has received positive reviews. I do not feel the book was self-published but jointly published.

The people behind Happy Tails Books have a wealth of experience and an unbelievable work ethic with tons of energy. I never waited more than a day to receive a response to a question and usually received one immediately. I found all of their suggestions helpful and would recommend them to anyone who wants to publish a book!”
