Mission: 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 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?
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!
