Lovingly cares for thousands of dogs and cats each year in the Phoenix area.


Helping Animals Live On through increased adoption, sterilization and pet care education


Why is it important?

Thousands of cats and dogs are homeless and uncared for on the streets of the Greater Phoenix area. Many of them, however, just need minimal care and treatment before finding a loving home. HALO, therefore, is that caring, treatable no-kill facility for Phoenix's homeless pets.

How do they do it?

HALO serves the Phoenix community as part animal rescuers, part adoption agency and part animal advocates. First and foremost is the mission of rescuing homeless pets to give them the treatment and care they need before adoption. Once rescued, pets are cleaned, sterilized, treated, and cared for in preparation for adoption. HALO’s robust website then includes a profile of each pet available for adoption, with photos and details about every dog and cat.

More broadly, HALO’s mission is to function as animal advocates, helping animals live on through increased pet education. This includes their role in the coalition of local rescue organizations, called the Alliance for Companion Animals, which serves to increase the live release rate in local shelters while decreasing intake and euthanasia rates.
