Adopt A Dog

Events

We’re celebrating 30 years! 1987-2017. 

Sometimes it’s the simplest concept that has the greatest impact. An unwanted dog in an animal shelter, a troubled teenager in a group home. How can they help each other?

Founded in 1987, the H.A.L.T. Program (Humans and Animals Learning Together) provides a therapeutic intervention for at-risk adolescents through dog obedience training in Knoxville, TN. Dogs are rescued from area shelters for the class and then adopted after the class is complete. While the dogs are learning basic obedience from their adolescent handlers, the kids are learning about teamwork, self-respect, patience, and understanding from their dogs.
