Our Mission

We Need Not Wait To See What Others Will Do" - Gandhi 

HALO is an all-volunteer nonprofit group dedicated to putting an end to the commercial mill dog industry, all the while rescuing and re-homing former mill dogs, homeless and abandoned animals, and euthanize listed dogs in overcrowded shelters.

Adoption Policy

Interested in one of our rescues? Please start by visiting our website at and filling out an adoption application. Our adoption fees are as follows: 

$200 Puppy to 2 years of age. 

$150 2 years and up. 

$100 Special Needs. 

We do not have a shelter or kennel facility that you can visit. All of our rescues are homed with one of HALO's founders or in a network off foster homes until they are ready for adoption. We would be happy to set up a time for a pup meet & greet as soon as we have your completed application.
