Project Halo is suing the other shelter that shared the same name for over 10 years. They have gone on all local news networks to make this information public, and have used attorneys to sue other groups trying to raise funds for them in the past. This can be quickly proven by doing a quick internet search that I made a mistake of not checking in advance. As a donor, my donations appear to be spent on court filings instead of saving animals. They said the adopted less than 300 dogs in the last year, but took in many thousands of dollars in donations. Please beware of donating or raising funds for this group. I found out later that this is not a free standing shelter, just a bunch of dogs kept at a couple's home who tend to sue more than they save. Your donations or help are better utilized in many other reputable rescue groups in the area.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Correctly allocate funds raised or donated to saving animals, not suing fund raisers or other shelters.
