SURRENDERING A PET
HALO Animal Rescue assists with cats and dogs only.
Returning or surrendering an owned pet:
PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR HOURS OF OPERATIONS MAY CHANGE AS REQUIRED AS A RESPONSE TO COVID-19. AT THIS TIME WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING NEW PETS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
OUR METRO CENTER MALL LOCATION IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
OUR THRIFT STORE REMAINS OPEN.
VISITORS TO OUR ADOPTION CENTERS WILL BE ASKED TO WAIT OUTSIDE OR IN THEIR VEHICLES IF THERE ARE OTHER CUSTOMERS IN FRONT OF YOU TO AVOID GATHERINGS.
If you are interested in a pet that we have listed for adoption or to see if we have a breed that you are looking for you are welcome to call us at 602-971-9222 or view our pets online at www.halorescue.org.
If you have adopted an animal from us and need to return him/her, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the information below. We make every effort to take back our previously adopted pets. You may also call us at 602-971-9222. We do ask for a surrender fee unless your pet was adopted less than six months ago and returned healthy.
Posting a pet online:
Adopt-A-Pet.com will post photos and write-ups of the animals in your care that need a new home. Visit their Rehome tab to set it up. They require pets to be spayed/neutered to be posted. You can receive low-cost help for spaying and neutering by calling the Spay Neuter Hotline at 602-265-SPAY.
If you have found a stray dog or tame stray cat** please post the animal's information and photo on the Facebook page Straydar and search their listing of lost pets. You should also have the animal scanned for a microchip, which can be done at any shelter, veterinary hospital or emergency room. We also recommend using the Next Door app as well as posting the pet on Craigslist. If you cannot keep the animal, please contact Maricopa County Animal Care and Control at 602-506-7387. If the stray pet you have found is injured, please contact the AZ Humane Society at 602-997-7585 for ambulance assistance.
**If you have found a feral (wild) stray cat, please contact the Spay Neuter Hotline at 602-265-SPAY or www.alteredtails.org for information on TNR, Trap-Neuter-Return, the only humane method of population control for feral cats.
