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.

 

Adoption Event #4: Ijams with Franklin the Fabulous!

By |

We will be at Ijams Nature Center’s Visitor complex with HALT dog Franklin! He will have completed 3 weeks of his obedience training and is looking for his forever family to go home to after his training classes end on April 28.
Franklin is a Catahoula-heeler-terrier mix, weighs around 47lbs and approx. 1 year old. He’s energetic, inquisitive, playful, and a very smart dog!
Come out and meet this happy boy and let’s help him find his forever home!

All dogs are medically screened, fully vaccinated, microchipped, on heartworm preventative, and will have basic obedience training at the end of their 4-week course. We are accepting applications and will work on home visits while classes are going on. All dogs will be able to go to their new homes on April 29th after graduation.

All breeds and ages are the best guess from our Dog Selection Committee and Veterinarian.

 

Suds, Subs, and Belly Rubs!
