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.

Meet Our Fall 2021 Class

By | News, Photo Gallery | No Comments

We are happy to share our new group of dogs participating in our fall class. Meet Fitz Gerald, Moose, Scarlett, Jolene, and Maple! They have their first outing at the adoption event on Sunday, September 12th, at Meadow View Garden Center, and start classes on the 13th. As we learn more about their personalities at events and in classes, we’ll share more about them. We are currently accepting applications on these dogs here: Adopt A HALT Dog

While the teen handlers are training their dogs, the kids too will be learning patience, respect, responsibility, and building self-esteem and self-confidence in themselves. All dogs are fully vaccinated, micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, on heartworm preventative, and are looking for their forever homes to go to once they graduate in early October.
