Project HALO (Helping Animals Live On) is a non-profit, NO-KILL animal rescue and sanctuary based in Charlotte, N.C. They are a 100% volunteer organization and are funded privately by generous donors.

Project HALO is a proud member of Partnership For Pets.

Project HALO rescues homeless, stray and unwanted dogs and gives them a second chance, providing a safe and loving foster home along with any medical attention they may need while looking for permanent loving homes to adopt them. All of Project HALO’s animals are spayed or neutered and are vet current at the time of their adoption. Further, they provide a home for those animals that are deemed unadoptable so they may live out the rest of their lives in a loving, caring atmosphere.
