Spring 2023 Class Session

By | News

We have chosen the “Fab Five” for the spring session, and they have their photo shoot early this week! We partnered with Young-Williams Animal Center this session.

They are with our vet, Dr. John Shaw at Ideal Veterinary Hospital getting the last of their medical needs taken care of. They will move to PetSafe later next week to get ready for classes to start.

Our first adoption event is Sunday, March 26th, and classes start that week! If you are looking for a new four-legged friend, we will be accepting Applications once we post photos. If you are interested in volunteering, check out our Volunteer page to learn more.

Look for pictures this week and check out our events page for upcoming adoption events and other fun stuff!

Update on Spring 2022 Class

By | Fundraiser, News, Photo Gallery

We are happy to share that Tino, Livvie, Millie, Marigold and Franklin have all been adopted! They graduated May 5th, and most went to their new homes within a couple of days. We have heard great things about them settling in and seeing cute pictures.

It took us a little longer to find the right fit for Franklin. We always want to be sure that once they graduate they find their forever home (as best we can) as we don’t want them to be bounced back. We were patient, and his perfect fit found him. He’s making himself at home and loving life. Thanks to all of you that spent the extra time sharing his posts and information to help make that happen.

We had a great session with several new fundraising events to help support the program. We had movie night hosted by our friends at Central Cinema,  a raffle with items donated by Elst Brewery, Mast General Store, K9 Center of East TN, The Bark, and Central Cinema plus fundraiser hosted by Elst Brewery and Steamboat Subs, and a local garden club plant sale.

All of these businesses donated a portion of sales during the event/day to H.A.L.T. We greatly appreciate these businesses for their support and those that came out to support HALT at these businesses!! We look forward to partnering with these and other local businesses in the future.

Thank you to all of our volunteers, sponsors and supporters for helping us do what we love and helping to make a difference in the lives of these kids and dogs in the program.


Suds, Subs, and Belly Rubs!

Happy Friday to everyone! Tomorrow is a BIG DAY, as we have our next dog adoption event! We’ll be at Elst Brewing Company on Central Ave. and handsome HALT dog Franklin will be with us from 1-3pm!

In addition to the fun atmosphere, several generous community partners have donated some fun items for us to raffle and raise funds for our program! Special thanks to Elst Brewing Company, Steamboat on Central, Central Cinema, The Bark, K9 Center of East Tennessee, and Mast General Store (Knoxville) who’ve put together some great people items & dog-related goodies! We hope you’ll come out and experience the 4 ‘Fs’ with us: Franklin, Food, Fresh air & Fun!

If you or someone you know is looking to add a fun, people-loving pup to their family, we’re accepting adoption applications for Franklin! He is looking for his forever home to go to after his basic obedience classes finish up on April 28!! Apply here then come out and meet Mr. Franklin: https://www.haltdogs.org/adopt-a-halt-dog/
