Founded in 1987, HALT is celebrating 30 years! It's sometimes hard to believe the program has been going that long, but we've had a lot of fun along the way. We celebrated our volunteers, graduates and families with a fun day at Oakes Farm. We wouldn't be successful without them. The weather was wonderful! It was great to catch up with everyone and several past dog graduates were able to come out as well. Here's to 30 more years going strong!

Meet the dogs chosen for our spring class! Will, Kate, Petals, Lila and Half Pint will be working with the kids in the coming weeks learning basic commands like Sit, Down and Stay. All dogs are spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated, micro-chipped and on heartworm preventative. As we spend more time with them over the coming weeks and learn more about their personalities, we'll share updates. Applications are being accepted, and they'll be ready to go to their new homes after October 5th.
