My story

Halo is a sweet gal, who as been continuously overlooked at the shelter. She has officially been at Morris Animal Refuge for 6 months. At first, we were worried about her finding a home because she is a senior with some skin issues. After spending time with her, we quickly learned how much energy and love she still had to give! Based on her bouncy personality you would never think she was a senior! She walks great on a leash, has done well around other animals, and absolutely loves to cuddle. We have also learned, that with a consistent diet her skin condition is very manageable , and this will only improve outside of the shelter environment. We are hoping for someone to open their heart to Halo, because we know that once they do they will fall in LOVE with her, just like all of Morris's staff has.

If you are interested in adopting this animal, please come meet them at our shelter! Our adoption hours are Saturdays and Mondays from 11am-4pm and Wednesdays from 11am-7pm. No appointment is necessary. We also have adoptable cats located at the PetSmart at 22nd and Oregon Avenue in South Philadelphia, which you can adopt between 12-3pm on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays and from 6-8:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

If you have more questions, please email adoptions@morrisanimalrefuge.org.
