Having met the founders of HALO, I know they are completely committed to saving the lives of dogs and cats in Arizona. The staff and volunteers are friendly and tireless in their erfforts. An incredible group of folks.

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

I've seen so many animals adopted to great families, watched as the staff nursed dogs back to health and watched the volunteer coordinator, Danielle, as she prepared those who wanted to give of their time. It's a great team.

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

Just wish they had more space to do their work. And it would be great if someone would donate some more trees for the dog yards for the warmer AZ summer months.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

I was first introduced to Halo at an adopt a thon at another shelter. My fiance and I fell in love with one of the dogs that they had rescued and just had to have her. I was extremely impressed with the love that they had for each animal and their passion to help dogs and cats in the community. Their drive to save animals and find them great homes has made me feel that this organization is one of the best animal rescues in Arizona.

I adopted my cat and my dog from HALO Animal Rescue and they are both WONDERFUL. They came already sterilized and microchipped, and they were up to date on their vaccines and had been given a deworming and a flea/tick treatment for prevention before I took them home. My cat was tested for FeLV, FIV and Heartworms before he ever came home to meet my other cats, so that was a relief! I adopted my dog three months ago and I adopted my cat over a year ago and they both are healthy, happy, loving animals - I would not go anywhere else if you are considering adding a new pet to your family.

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

my home life. I have two happy, healthy pets who mean the world to me!

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

...not make any changes at all!

HALO is a lifesaver for thousands of animals, and every single person there is caring and all about what the animals need. Their work is invaluable, and without their dedication and commitment thousands more animals would lose their lives every year. We have personally experienced their extraordinary compassion for these animals, having adopted a dog and two kitties from them, and we cannot say enough good things about HALO. They are the best at what they do and the world would be a much better place if everyone had the respect and love for animals that all of HALO's staff and volunteers do. Bless them!

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

adopting a dog and two cats

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

give them the wherewithal to serve many more animals than they can currently do. They are remarkable at stretching and utilizing their resources - I just wish I could make it easier for them.

They do incredibly well with what they have. Of course they need more money and more room, but one day...

Halo is an amazing rescue committed to dogs that would otherwise be discarded and killed in the shelters. We have 2 dogs and a cat from Halo that are much loved companions. Their work has saved thousands of animals, such as ours, who find themselves displaced, abandoned and unloved. Halo gives dogs and cats a second chance, which they all deserve.

I have been involved in animal rescue organizations in the Phoenix area for seven years. I have been a volunteer for HALO for two years at their Thrift Store Boutique. The Thrift store is a nonprofit and all proceeded go to help the operation of the shelter and all of the good work they are doing to rescue and save thousands of animales in the Phoenix area.
The work and the dedication of all of the staff and volunteers is fantastic. I have enjoyed working with such careing and big harted volunteers.
This organization will always go the extra mile to save an animal in need.

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

Seeing the many happy and satisfied people who adopted a pet . They find the organization to be excellent in the treatment of the animales and always have many good things to say about the shelter when they come to the store to shop.

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

Hope to help them be able to have a larger shelter to be able to take in more animales to give them all the care and love they have to offer while trying so hard to find them a forever home.

I have been volunteering with HALO for over a year now. I volunteer about ten hours each week so I have grown close to the animals, the staff, and the organization itself. I am so inspired by the things I see when volunteering. It is the most touching thing to see an animal, who would have otherwise been euthanized, get to be adopted and become part of someone's family. To know that you have changed these animals lives for the better is such a priceless gift. HALO is truly about the animals and believes that all animals deserve a second chance. I am blessed to be able to spend my time with these wonderful animals and people. The staff at HALO all have such big hearts and care so much for the animals. Without HALO, so many loving cats and dogs would not have been given their second chance at life. I am thankful to be apart of this organization and to be able to see the positive impact it has on so many other people and animals. HALO is simply fighting for the lives of animals that don't have the voice to fight for themselves.

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

the growing number of animals' lives that are saved eached year.

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

I can't say I would change a thing. I am so touched by everything HALO stands for and I can't find anything negative to say.

I can't even begin to say how much I have gotten out of volunteering with HALO. I will bring so much with me from this experience. I have been able to see countless lives being saved and to know I have been apart of that is a beautiful thing. I have also met amazing people along the way that I know will be lifelong friends.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

It makes me feel like I am making a difference. I have never felt that before and it's a priceless feeling.
