HALO is "roommates" with another organization, Maricopa County Animal Care and Control.  We are two separate organizations with separate staff, finances, etc. MCACC is a public, county-run Animal Control, whereas HALO is a private non-profit no-kill rescue.

Our two organizations exist under one roof, and we have one common goal: working together to save as many lives as possible. For more details about our partnership, see the press release.  HALO moved into the building on January 1st, 2013 and excitedly began this new chapter of saving animals' lives.

The building's lobby is separated into two parts with two separate entrances.  The left entrance is for adoptions (HALO's lobby) and the right entrance is for lost and found and surrenders (MCACC's lobby). Here's a photo of the adoption lobby's front desk with HALO's temporary signage.

The whole facility consists of:

-one large building with an adoption center, MCACC's clinic, the two lobbies, a meeting/training room, and staff and volunteer offices

-nine smaller casitas for housing dogs in indoor/outdoor dog runs (of which 3 will be HALO animals and seven will continue to be MCACC's lost and found animals)

This is what the inside of the nine dog casitas look like.  The dog runs are half indoor, half outdoor, separated by a sliding door so the dogs can choose whether to be inside or outside.

Cupcake "smiles" for the camera in one of the dog casitas.  She has soft bedding, toys, and an outdoor extension of her kennel for going potty.

A HALO staff member snuggles a puppy in the area for the sick animals who need some extra TLC.  This pup came to us very dehydrated and needing intravenous fluids.  The animals needing some TLC are housed in the treatment room, one hallway down from the clinic.

The kennels are scrubbed and sanitized to help prevent the spread of disease.  HALO has done a special deep cleaning of all the animal areas we have moved into so the animals can start fresh!

HALO dogs have one grass play area to romp in, next to building I.
