Spotlight on a Rescue or Charity: We Are Proud To Honor HALO Animal Rescue

We are dedicated to spreading awareness about pet related causes such as pet adoption. So we are excited to announce our new Tuesday blog series “Spotlight on a Rescue or Charity“, to pay tribute and honor animal rescue & shelters, unsung heroes across America dedicated to enriching, saving and nurturing the lives of animals in need.  We hope you will champion our cause by barking the word about the importance of pet adoption and donating your time and finances to your local animal shelter or rescue. Be a voice, email us if you know of a deserving animal rescue or charity that should be spotlighted and recognized. With that said, we are proud to spotlight “Halo Animal Rescue

About Halo Animal Rescue

HALO (Helping Animals Live On) is a private, 501(c)(3), non-profit organization founded in 1994 by two women, Michel Herstam and Heather Allen, out of their homes in Phoenix, AZ.

HALO provides temporary shelter to abandoned cats and dogs until they can be adopted into a permanent home.

HALO is a limited admission or “no-kill” facility that does not accept animals from the public. HALO, believing that their strategy serves the animals in greatest need, selects animals from the euthanasia lists at “open admission” shelters in Maricopa County, primarily Maricopa County Animal Care and Control.

In 2008, HALO transitioned from a completely foster-based organization to an agency that utilizes both foster homes and a physical adoption center. HALO’s adoption center is a 3,000-square-foot building on a 1.75 acre parcel of land located at Camelback and 35th Avenue in Phoenix, AZ. This location was most-recently a cat adoption facility managed by Maricopa County Animal Care and Control, though it was originally constructed to be a Department of Motor Vehicle office.

Since HALO’s inception in 1994, over 20,000 dogs and cats have found a new home, with our adoption numbers growing every year! In 2009 alone, we adopted out 2,584 dogs and cats in to new homes, giving them a second chance at happiness!


HALO is an acronym that stands for Helping Animals Live On. It is a succinct, four-word definition of what they are here for.  It is the reason each and every employee and volunteer puts two feet on the ground.  It is a passion that goes beyond just loving dogs and cats.  It is a driving force in their lives; to make this community, this world, a safe place for homeless pets. Helping Animals Live On through increased adoption, sterilization and pet care education.
