We are a small organization of people dedicated to giving the city-run pound animals another chance at a forever home. We do not have our own shelter, the dogs and cats in the pound do not belong to Halo. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) . Halo volunteers take photos of the pets in the pound, take them to adoption events, and hold fundraisers to help pay for spay/neuter program and any other expenses that help make the pound pets more comfortable while they are waiting for adoption/rescue.
Come Meet Our Pets...
Adoptions can be made through the animal control officer, Jim, during regular business hours Monday-Friday. Please call 573-468-8001 to schedule an appointment.
After business hours and most weekends, Halo volunteers are able to assist in adoptions. Please see our website for schedule of adoption times - www.haloforanimals.com We also may be contacted to schedule appointments at 573-205-5444. Find us on Facebook
Our Adoption Process...
Adoption fee from the city is $30 for any dog/cat over the age of 4 months(rabies vaccination included). Cats/dogs younger than 4 months - city adoption fee is $10. We usually cannot provide medical or temperment background of any of these animals as they are strays. Very little vetting is done prior to adoption. Halo For Animals offers a half-price(up to $50) spay/neuter certificate to help with the state-required spay or neuter.
