H.A.L.O. Rescue was created in 2006 with a mission to create a NO KILL safe haven for abused and abandoned animals. H.A.L.O. believes in a community where there are no more homeless pets and that together we can eliminate the killing of companion animals.
What sets us apart from other shelters is we are Indian River County's only No Kill animal shelter. This means we do not euthanize for age, space, medical needs, or behavioral issues. Once an animal enters H.A.L.O. we make a pledge to them to provide all physical, emotional, and medical care needed until a forever home is found.
While we primarily deal with Indian River County and our mission is to make Indian River County No Kill we also bring in animals all over the state and even outside of Florida.
HALO saves over 2000 animals each year but our work is not done. In 2016 1,400 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens still lost their lives in Indian River county. With your help, HALO is here to end this because there is a better way. It doesn't have to happen.
We depend on animals for everything including unconditional love but can they depend on us in return.
HALO's Long-Term Goals:
To continue expansion and build on the new property, continue to provide low cost spay & neuter programs for the community and work towards an efficient community cat program designed to reduce the killing in shelters. To spread the philosophy of no kill rescue and compassion for animals, so that one day no animal will lose their life just for not having space available, needing medical care, or just requiring a bit more time to find a place to call their forever home.
We're very, very excited about realizing this dream...and, of course, we will continue to realize more adoptions and save more animals as we have every year since inception.
