Giving your time to our animals in need is rewarding and will fill a special place in your heart as well as their's.

Getting Started is Easy!


If you're ready to begin your volunteer experience, please fill out our online application, email us at volunteer@halorescue.org, or call (602) 506-2239.  All volunteers are asked to attend a 90-minute Volunteer Orientation.  At the orientation, you'll learn about HALO's history, philosophies and mission.  Once you've attended the orientation, we'll get you started with training in the specific area(s) of interest you have.

Volunteer Qualifications: Individuals must be reliable, at least 18 years old, have a basic understanding of HALO's mission and goals, be flexible, have the ability to schedule their volunteer time in advance and have a great love and compassion for our furry friends.

It is vitally important that each volunteer realize that his or her part is critical to the success of our rescue work. No matter how small or insignificant you feel your role might be, we would love to have you on board. We ask that once you have scheduled an assignment, that you fulfill your commitment to the best of your ability.  We do understand that things happen in life that would keep you from fulfilling your scheduled time, we just ask that you let us know as soon as you can.

Each volunteer is asked to attend our Volunteer Orientation. We have orientations scheduled almost every week, with individual appointments available during the week if you cannot make the scheduled orientation classes.   There is a $20 per person registration fee to attend an orientation, to offset the cost of the HALO volunteer t-shirt and the name tag you'll be given.

If you're ready to begin your rewarding volunteer experience, please let us know! We'd love to meet you! Sign up to volunteer on our online application, call (602) 506-2239 or email us at volunteer@halorescue.org.

In 2012, HALO saved 4,758 dogs and cats!  We couldn't do it without the amazing people who donate their time to help save lives.
