Adoption Event at Mast General Store

By | News

We had a great first outing this afternoon with Mikey, Norris and Harry! They were a little anxious at first in a crowded, noisy environment, but settled in and were very well behaved. They had lots of people stop by to share scratches, pets and attention.

One of the folks from Mast came by to share his homemade treats and the dogs loved them as you can see in the photos. All eyes were on him while the yummy smells of peanut butter or cheese filled their noses. They were respectful and waited their turns for the most part. Not too bad considering they haven’t started their training yet!

An application has now been submitted for Norris that is being processed, and we have strong interest on Mikey and Harry after today’s event.

Belle’s application is moving right along and she  was on a home visit this weekend with the family that wants her. They had a wonderful time and this looks to be her new forever home. We will post updates on the class as they’re available.

Thank  you to the wonderful folks at Mast General who are always great hosts, our volunteers that helped today, and everyone that stopped by.

Training starts Monday and we are super excited to be working with these great dogs!




Fundraising event at Just For You

By | News

Thank you to Just For You: The Stockroom for hosting a private shopping event for HALT to raise money for our fall session. We had a great turnout, a fun time and 15% of the sales were donated to HALT. Plus, everyone that made a purchase got a 15% discount coupon to use on their next visit!

This “boutique down the street” has been open for about a year now, and these ladies know fashion. They have everything from really pretty clothes and accessories to vintage items and jewelry that they make in house! Kim and her associates at the store are very nice and will help you find just the right piece or put a full outfit together. They are located in west Knoxville near Turkey Creek. Stop by to check them out, and let them know you heard about them from HALT!
