Nena and Midnight - We have a pair looking for a home together, pictures here are of Nena, but don't forget to checkout Midnight. They are both potty trained but prefer to go outside to do their business and crate trained together. They are so bonded that they need to stay together. They enjoy playing with the other dogs and don’t mind the cats in the house. Nena and Midnight don't like being taken out of their kennel but if you call them, they will come out. Midnight also watches Nena and wants to follow her wherever she goes. They both get along with everyone and children over the age of 6 years old. Both of these girls love playing outside with each other and the other dogs. Once they get to know you, they are total cuddle bugs and want all of your love or just sit next to you. Both girls are great on a leash and enjoy going for walks. They are waiting for their forever new home.

If you are considering adopting a dog through HALO Here are some helpful hints:

Bring pictures of your yard to show secure fencing. Most of our dogs require a 6 foot fenced yard. Yards must be cleared of any fox tail weeds.

We do adopt small dogs to apartments or condo and need to see pictures of the patio or balcony area. If you rent, please bring copy of your lease to show you can have pets and any size restrictions.

We do not adopt to homes with children under the age of five unless we know the history of the dog with young children. All Children MUST be present at adoption.

If you own a dog and are looking for a friend please bring your dog with you so they can be introduced.

About East Contra Costa County Homeless Animals' Lifeline Organization (H.A.L.O.)

About Our Rescue Group...

H.A.L.O. is the East Contra Costa County Homeless Animals' Lifeline Organization, better known as H.A.L.O. We are a nonprofit, all volunteer, 501c(3) charitable organization who assists dogs, cats and their owners in Eastern Contra Costa County.
We rescue approximatly 500 animals a year, all by volunteers, all in our homes and in our hearts.
We are not a shelter,
We have grant funds for the spaying and neutering of East County ferals and food for them if needed.
We have a program called "Angel Ears" where certified dogs and their trainers go to the local libraries and the children read to the dogs. This has proven a very effective way to increase reading skills rapidly. We also take the dogs to senior facilities.
We are in need of volunteer in many capacities.
