H.A.L.T.: Humans and Animals Learning Together


Founded in 1987, H.A.L.T. (Humans & Animals Learning Together) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) program that provides a therapeutic intervention for at-risk adolescents through a series of dog obedience training classes. Dogs are rescued from local animal shelters to participate in the class. With the help of adult volunteers, adolescents teach the dogs basic obedience commands, providing a therapeutic intervention for the student trainers while increasing the adoptability of shelter dogs. The dogs are adopted into suitable homes after the class is complete.
