WHO WE ARE

H.A.L.O.S. is a non profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to the health and welfare of each and every animal. We are a volunteer group and we have foster homes only-no shelter. We are devoted to the animals in our care and they each receive proper medical attention.

Foster Homes NEEDED!

If you are interested in fostering just one, two or more cats PLEASE let us know! We are in GREAT NEED of more foster homes. We can only take in so many cats, but there are SO MANY more cats that need to be placed in a foster home while they have a chance at life and wait for their fur-ever home to be found.

We will take care of all vaccines and medical care the cat will need. We will provide food and litter. All you have to do is provide love and shelter. Please remember we can only save as many cats off the street as we have room in our own homes. Winter will be here soon; there will be many homeless, freezing and starving cats along with it. We need to take them off the street, but in the mean time we have nowhere to put them. We need your help! Please volunteer to be a foster home today!

DID YOU KNOW THAT ............?????

3-4 million cats and dogs are euthanized each year.

In 7 years, one female cat and her young can produce 420,000 cats.

In 6 years, one female dog and her young can produce 67,000 dogs.

It costs US taxpayers an estimated $2 billion each year to round up, house, kill, and dispose of homeless animals.

Hurricane Katrina is just an example of millions of homeless pets in shelters. Please ADOPT rather than buy from a breeder or pet store. Save a dog or cat that is already alive in need of a home.

Spaying or Neutering Is Good for Your Pet

Spaying and neutering helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives.

Spaying and neutering can eliminate a number of health problems that can be very difficult or expensive to treat.

Spaying eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the incidence of breast cancer, particularly when your pet is spayed before her first estrous cycle.

Neutering eliminates testicular cancer and decreases the incidence of prostate disease.

Spaying or Neutering Is Good for You

Spaying and neutering makes pets more affectionate companions.

Neutering cats makes them less likely to spray and mark territory.

Spaying a dog or cat eliminates her heat cycle completely. Estrus lasts an average of six to 12 days, often twice a year, in dogs and an average of six to seven days, three or more times a year, in cats.

Females in heat can cry incessantly, show nervous behavior, and attract unwanted male animals.

Unsterilized animals often exhibit more behavior and temperament problems than do those who have been spayed or neutered.

Spaying and neutering can make pets less likely to bite.

Neutering makes pets less likely to roam the neighborhood, run away, or get into fights.

Spaying and Neutering Are Good for the Community

Communities spend millions of dollars to euthanize thousands of unwanted animals.

Irresponsible breeding contributes to the problem of dog bites and attacks.

Animal shelters are overburdened with surplus animals.

Some stray animals also scare away or kill birds and wildlife.

Fix That Bunny!

When being conscientious about the pet overpopulation, don’t forget to spay or neuter your pet rabbit.

Altering rabbits can reduce hormone-driven behavior such as lunging, mounting, spraying, and boxing.

Spaying females can prevent ovarian, mammarian, and uterine cancers.

Rabbits reproduce faster than dogs or cats and are the third most surrendered animal to shelters.

Spay or neuter surgery carries a one-time cost that is relatively small when one considers its benefits. It's a small price to pay for the health of your pet and the prevention of more unwanted animals.

Every $50.00 Donated helps us to Spay or Neuter a cat. PLEASE DONATE TODAY!! For each cat spayed will prevent HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS from being born on the streets!

The following is a list of countries in which declawing cats is either illegal or considered extremely inhumane and only performed under extreme circumstances.

England Scotland Wales Italy France Germany Austria Switzerland Norway Sweden Netherlands Northern Ireland Ireland Denmark Finland Slovenia Portugal Belgium Spain Brazil Australia New Zealand

Declawing=Mutilation

Many veterinarians routinely ask their clients, when if it is the time to spay or neuter a cat, if they want to have them also declawed, like an additional option on a menu. In reality the declawing procedure is a barbaric mutilation of the cat, that is supported by unscrupulous veterinarians that see it as a source of additional revenue for them. They conveniently fail to inform the public about the atrocity of the procedure and the consequences for the cat.

Declawing is a severe surgical procedure in which a cat’s toes are amputated – not just one amputation, but ten separate digital amputations! Portions of their paws, not just the nails, are removed which is equivalent to a person losing the entire top of every finger at the first knuckle.

Unlike most animals who walk on the soles of their paws or feet, cats are digitigrade which means they walk on their toes. This means that declawed cats can no longer walk or exercise properly because they have lost bones, tendons and ligaments in their feet. This affects their posture and both their physical and emotional health. Initial recovery takes a few weeks, but even after the surgical wounds have healed, there are often long-term physical and psychological effects such as permanent lameness, limping, arthritis, aggressive biting, litter box avoidance and other long-term complications.

Declawing is banned in most civilized countries

Did you know that declawing is so predictably painful and traumatic that it is used in studies to test the effectiveness of pain medications? It is considered so inhumane that it is banned in most civilized countries around the world, or is only performed under extreme circumstances. Great Britain's Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons goes so far as to declare that declawing is “unnecessary mutilation.”

Dr. Nicholas Dodman, Professor, Author and Director of the Behavior Clinic at Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine explains declawing:

"The inhumanity of the procedure is clearly demonstrated by the nature of cats' recovery from anesthesia following the surgery. Unlike routine recoveries, including recovery from neutering surgeries, which are fairly peaceful, declawing surgery results in cats bouncing off the walls of the recovery cage because of excruciating pain. Cats that are more stoic huddle in the corner of the recovery cage, immobilized in a state of helplessness, presumably by overwhelming pain. Declawing fits the dictionary definition of mutilation to a tee. Words such as deform, disfigure, disjoint, and dismember all apply to this surgery. Partial digital amputation is so horrible that it has been employed for torture of prisoners of war, and in veterinary medicine, the clinical procedure serves as model of severe pain for testing the efficacy of analgesic drugs. Even though analgesic drugs can be used postoperatively, they rarely are, and their effects are incomplete and transient anyway, so sooner or later the pain will emerge."

This is a video of a puppy mill. Dogs are auctioned off in poor health, bred and their puppies are shipped all over the United States. They live in one cage their entire life. They are never let out, EVER. This is legal and licensed by the USDA.

Please Don't buy from a Pet Store, Rescue instead. Help to shut down these Puppy Mills!
