Mission Statement: Hood Co Animal Lovers Organization (HALO) is dedicated to creating a better quality of life for displaced companion animals in Hood County by helping them secure a 'second chance' in loving forever homes.  

Welcome to HALO - Hood Co Animal Lovers Organization

Rescue / Community Outreach-Education / Spay-Neuter Initiatives 

for Hood County displaced animals

a 501(c)3 non-profit organization 

HALO – Hood Co Animal Lovers Organization was formed in April 2011 by animal welfare volunteers who wanted to work with the local animal control facility, local animal shelters and the community to find homes for the large amount of displaced & abandoned animals in Hood County.

HALO is not a shelter, but a group of volunteers who foster displaced animals in their homes until permanent homes can be found. Foster animals are vetted and brought to adoption sites around Hood County in search for a new loving home. 

HALO – Hood Co Animal Lovers Organization is a nonprofit, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization run solely by volunteers. We have no paid staff and all moneys raised through donations, fund raisers, and adoptions are used for the care of HALO’s animals.

If you need help placing your animal or an animal you have found, please go to our “Rehoming Your Pet” page for helpful guidance.  



We have a brand new, state of the art, BEAUTIFUL Kroger in town.  Please don't forget to attach your Kroger card to HALO which will help fund the rescue of animals and outreach programs!


Kroger will DONATE to HALO when you shop there with no extra money out of your pocket. Click here for details.

Our 2017 Chari-Tea Fundraiser was a huge success as always.

 It was a lot of fun visiting with our old animal loving friends.

 Your heart will be warmed by all the love in the room!
