The Halifax Humane Society exists to protect animals from cruel, neglectful and exploitative treatment. It is the belief of the Society that all living creatures possess an intrinsic value, which is manifested in its creation. Further, the Society believes that mankind must become a responsible steward of animals which he has domesticated and brought under his control. The Society shall maintain programs and services, which embrace that principle: Maintain a shelter facility to provide for the needs of lost, forsaken and abandoned animals; Educate and continually acquaint the citizens, particularly children, with the ethics of kindness and compassion, thereby engendering respect for all living beings; Investigate complaints of animal abuse and correct those situations by way of education, or if need be prosecution; Prevent the overpopulation of domestic animals by providing affordable spay and neuter opportunities to the public, while making certain that animals adopted from the Shelter never contribute to the problem.

I have gone to the facility in hopes of finding a lost cat!, they shuffle you through and you have to run to keep up, they do not want you to see the sad state of affairs the animals are living in!!!!!!. What happens to the moneys being donated each year it does not seem to be filtering down to any animal there. just saying!!!!!!!! Why are there no photos of the stray animals???????????????? One or two does not cut it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

Building a dog park that the animals at the shelter do not get to use. Spending over $800,000 of shelter money while the animals at the shelter spend 24 hours a day in their kennels, and other kennel building is falling apart.

Where are the 70 confiscated rabbits CEO of HHS?

70 confiscated domestic rabbits (helpless prey animals) have been hidden by both Halifax Humane Society & Charleston Animal Society since 1/1/2016 and sent in c/o predator owners & undisclosed "farms" without spay and neuter.

Valid questions of concern remain unanswered. Why would a shelter that states they have no room for more than 3 rabbits agree to take in 70 rabbits - then immediately transport the 70 rabbits to undisclosed locations?

Claiming to be Hero's and possibly sending neglected rabbits from one bad situation to another on farms that may have placed them into another bad situation is not acceptable.

The Rabbit Community is asking for full transparency and proof these rabbits are in adoptive family homes As Promised in the media, spayed & neutered,
alive, given proper medical care, not being used as food for predators or humans and not being bred for profit.

I am writing this to inform people about my experience with the Halifax Humane Society in Daytona Beach. First let me say the staff which runs this organization is completely unprofessional, indifferent and downright cruel when it comes to the treatment of animals under its care. I adopted an animal recently and it came with a host of health of problems. There is no licensed veterinarian on staff to oversee the treatment. Rather a vet tech oversees and does all of the medical procedures. With a budget of over 2 million dollars per year through public and private funding to the run the daily operations, I ask this question. Would you take your child to a medical assistant or a licensed physician for treatment? “THIS IS NOT A NO KILL SHELTER” This is still a kill shelter. According to their website, they are “still working” towards a “no kill” status and expect to be there in 2017. I won’t be donating any money to the Halifax Humane Society. Will you?

Very high kill shelter. Based on statistics provided by Halifax, 739 dogs and 4370 cats were euthanized in 2014 alone. That is an average rate of 14 animals per day. They seem unwilling, at this time, to embrace going "no-kill" which has proven highly effective and cost efficient in large and small communities throughout the country.

I used to volunteer here when I was younger, walking dogs. There was always a need and my family adopted a great dog here 11 years ago as well and we always make sure to drop a big bag of dog food every once in a while in the donation bin at Publix on behalf of our dog. The HHS does great outreach in schools, explaining the importance of pet care and spaying or neutering your dog or cat. They take in all kinds of animals; once I saw a little piglet there. A definite need in the community. So glad we picked our dog here, he's such a good boy!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I got my dog here! He's wonderful.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get it more funding. They deal with so many animals, I wish that weren't the case.
