About Us

In March 2008, Uno's Happy Endings Rescue was founded when a small, weak kitten was dying after being abandoned with her 9 siblings & their two nursing mothers in the cold. She was the only kitten out of the 12 that needed any assistance surviving, thus earning her the name "Uno". UHE Founder Amanda Goodwin took the kitten home and fought for the kitten's survival day and night. Uno died on three separate occasions throughout her first few weeks of life, but the amazing veterinary team at a local animal hospital brought her back each time. By the time Uno was 6 weeks old, she finally conquered her survival odds, and was adopted as a permanent member of the family by her rescuer Amanda. Her struggles never affected her again and Uno thrived. Eventually Uno became a landmark for animal rescue when her plight inspired the creation of Uno's Happy Endings Rescue, a safe haven for all animals seeking shelter through their own storms.


Uno's Happy ending rescue relies 100% on donations and fosters. If you are willing to help our efforts in any way please contact Amanda. 

Why Animal Rescue?

  Saving lives has it's own rewards, but the financial and emotional strains definitely leave many people wondering: Why participate in animal rescue?

  The answer is simple: Becoming a voice for the voice-less. Every day, millions of animals are euthanized in shelters that simply do not have the space for them. Thousands more are abused, neglected, or abandoned because their owners cannot afford to care for them. With the number of available homes decreasing and dog and cat populations on the rise, it is not difficult to see why animal rescue groups are so necessary.

How Can I help?

​  You ​don't have to start an animal rescue group to help animals (although the world could sure use more of them!).​​​

​  Helping is simple. You can open your home to an animal in need by fostering or adopting. You can visit your local animal shelter or rescue facility. Even taking a dog for a walk, or sitting with a homeless shelter cat can increase that animal's chances for adoption. Have some extra money laying around that you're hoping to donate? Help stop overpopulation by spaying/neutering a stray or feral cat. The ways to help are endless; which step are you going to take for animals?​ Fostering saves lives, if you are interested in helping the recue efforts by letting any type of animal rest in your home while it si waiting to be adopted please click the link below. ​​
