Become a class sponsor

Want to become more involved? HALT’s purpose is to benefit at-risk adolescents and rescued dogs from shelters. Your sponsorship helps these children develop a positive sense of accomplishment, self-worth, and pride. Additionally, you’re helping save a dog’s life. Your sponsorship allows everyone at HALT to focus on the priorities – adolescents and dogs.

To give you an idea of how important and beneficial this program is for these adolescents, here are some quotes from the letters they write about their dog to the new families at the end of a class session:

“Sassy is my best friend and she will be yours as well.”

“Dora is very smart and learns very fast. You won’t have any trouble teaching her new tricks.”

“My man Cliff! I love this dog. He taught me as much as I taught him.”

“My experience with Charlie has been great. I feel that I’ve made a difference in his life just as much as he has made a difference in my life.”
