I have advocated for HALO for more than a year. Their treatment of animals and dedication to their welfare, along with educating the public and improving human-animal interactions overall is a model all such organizations would do well to follow.

My mom and I went to a Pet Adoption Expo put on by Petsmart and Halo was there. We saw a woman walking around with this cute little dog and that is how we got Nikko. Two years later and the people at Halo still remember Nikko who we now call Nikki. He is a jack russel chihuahua mix and is now about going on 5 years old. He was the best investment we've ever made. Halo is a wonderful organization. My sister about a year ago adopted her dog Buddy from them and has never been happier. He is a real sweet dog. Thank you Halo! You guys rock!

We adopted a Dapple Dachshund who we named Fred! We had to put our dachshund of 14 years to sleep and Halo was part of a large adoption at the coliseum. The halo people were wonderful and we are so happy with our adopted Fred. A great agency with kind hearts!

I adopted two puppies a year and a half ago and they follow me everywhere. We live in Phoenix during the winter and on a beach near Boston in the summer, that is when we are not traveling coast to coast in a camper. We have a great life and I could not be more grateful to Halo. When I return to Phoenix next week, I want to become a volunteer and a foster Mom. Heather and her team at Halo deserve kudos for their extraordinary efforts this last summer. Creative ideas were employed, new locations at Petsmart were opened and huge numbers of additional adoptions over last year while facing several break-ins and robberies and other challenges is a really impressive effort. Everything we can do to support their efforts is time and money well spent.

Halo Animal Rescue is a wonderful organization that is really dedicated to saving the lives of precious animals! We adopted a beautiful black cat from Halo that was given a second chance and has since become a member of our family. She has so much love, gives lots of kisses, loves to be right by our side and part of everything that we are doing around the house. She waits at the doorstep for us to come home everyday and we love her very much! We appreciate HALO for seeing the good in her and giving her a second chance--we are so happy to have her in our lives!

I never used to like cats. I don't know why, they just never appealed to me as much as dogs did. One day the guy I was dating adpoted an older cat from Petsmart's Halo adoption. I was terribly allergic to her, but she was so sweet and would always curl in my lap. Her tounge always hung out (because she was abused before Halo saved her and lost her front teeth in the abuse). I think she knew we were going to be her forever parents. My allergies went away after about a month, and she was such a great cat. We adopted 3 more over the next 5 years from Halo. Each one with their own personalities. They are all special and great cats. Halo does such a wonderful job saving these animals and finding them homes. And their adoption fees are resonable and much deserved since the money goes back to saving more animals. I reccomend you adopt your next pet from Halo, there are so many pets to choose from and they are all so wonderful!

After the heartbreak of having my 13+ year old Lab, PTS I wanted to wait a while before considering another dog. I knew, that when the time came, I would adopt from a shelter.
Stopping by HALO, when I thought it just might be time to start looking...
I was looking for a dog, not quite as
big as a Lab, but almost. And I didn't want a youngster (I am in my early 60's & didn't want a pup who would out live me)
I noticed and smiled at an older chihuahua mix, who reminded me of a dog that I had many years ago. However, not really finding a dog that "called out" to me, I went home.
But I thought about that little old Chihuahua mix.... She was 12 years old, and she had looked so sad and uncertain.... and I re-capped the memories of the other little white Chi that I had so many years ago.
The next day, I returned to HALO. We took "Lexi" out to the yard. She
really didn't do much, didn't show much interest in me. Again, I went home. But I kept thinking about her. How confused she must be, to be given up after 12 years with one owner. I decided I would give her a try.
I'm not sorry! She absolutely adores "me!" and will do anything to please me! Her second favorite person is my granddaughter.
She has learned to accept the foster cats that I care for. And she is
one active little "senior" dog!

I volunteer at MCAC&C west and come in contact with your staff frequently. It is easy to see how much they care about the animals esp when they are picking out dogs to take to their shelter (building I). Not all their choices have blond hair and blue eyes, some are old, some are sick, some have behavior problems because they have been at county for too long. And sometimes there is a dog who has been e-listed and i love that dog, but have run out of room to take home aother foster, and I run to one of your staff and beg them to take the dog--and frequently they do save that dog's life! Thank you, cathy

Halo brought me my two best friends. After my divorce of a 15 year marriage I was lonely until I came across Halo at Petsmart. The deal to adopt was too good to pass up ($5 for each cat) and so I adopted two, two year old cuties (Mac and Tosh). They were so well taken care of before I adopted them. If I had room I'd adopt more.

I believe in Halo so much that the first time in my life I've been donating regularly/monthly to them.
