Millions of animals are housed in animal shelters every year. But even those shelters that provide the best care ill inadvertently expose these animals to stress. Based on years of research, it is a fact that the most stressed dogs relinquished will behave the same as it did at home. In fact, the majority of owner relinquished dogs are euthanized because they cannot cope with the shelter environment and their behavior changes. Please consider other options before you make a decision to surrender your pet to the shelter. HALO will assist you with the resources needed to keep your pet. What we can do for those individuals facing financial challenges:
ASSIST with behavior modification for unwanted behavior

Our latest community outreach project
This weekend Halo performed another community outreach project. We will do what it takes to keep pets in their homes. Take a look at this awesome privacy fence for JoJo aka Penny. We would like to thank our volunteers for spending the weekend working to put it up. Thanks to JoJo’s mom for selling quilts to make the money for the supplies. Community outreach is a group effort, we are always in need of supplies and volunteers. If you can help please do..we ARE making a change in our community!
Many individuals encounter a catastrophic event causing displacement, such as hospitalization, eviction, fire, etc. Many organizations in the community offer services to those individuals in need, however, those individual's pets remain displaced and those individuals find no other option but to surrender their beloved pet to the shelter. HALO offers a service to those individuals and will house and care for their pet while they recover.
Helping Animals Lost and Orphaned-HALO is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to reduce the population of owner surrendered animals in shelters.
