H.A.L.O. stands for Helping Animals Live and Overcome

H.A.L.O. No-Kill Rescue was founded in 2006 on the wings of a dream. A dream where all companion animals are safe from abuse and neglect. A dream where the residents of our community are provided with the programs and support needed to ensure their pet's safety, health and happiness. A dream of a no-kill future for all of Indian River County.


Thirteen years later, with full transparency and strong community support of our mission, H.A.L.O. has saved over 18,000 lives and reduced euthanasia in our county by 84%!


Our promise to you: WE will never stop advocating for companion animals, WE will never stop fighting for a no-kill future and for compassion for all living creatures, and WE will always strive to do better for them. It's just a better way!

How is "no-kill rescue" achieved when 7 MILLION animals enter shelters yearly?


By adopting our way out of the killing mentality and implementing cost-effective programs and services. By working with people, embracing lifesaving programs, and treating each life as precious.


30 MILLION people acquire a new companion animal every year. The only reason for shelter killing is a lack of faith in the community and the animals being rescued. 

H.A.L.O. believes that together we will be the change we wish to see in the world.
No animal left behind!
