An animal rescue non-profit organization is getting a boost to help aid with adoption.

HALO Animal Rescue of Maricopa County announced it has been awarded a $75,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to assist with its rescue efforts. The money will pay for new doors on the adoption floor, radios for the staff members and new cameras.  HALO said the Petco Foundation investment will help with new doors on the adoption floor to offer a better presentation of HALO’s pets to increase adoptions. The organization said the money also will go toward improving communication among employees to help ensure safety measures and new cameras that will help with better quality photos on the website for potential adopters to view.

Since 1994, HALO (Helping Animals Live On) has helped animals by boosting adoption, sterilization and pet care education in Maricopa County. The organization has saved more than 65,000 pets since then and has seven locations around the county. HALO is a “no-kill” animal rescue organization that provides temporary shelter to abandoned cats and dogs until they can be adopted into permanent homes.

Petco Foundation since 1999 has invested more than $250 million in life-saving animal welfare work. It has more than 4,000 welfare animal partners and encourages communities to invest in adoption, medical care programs, spay and neuter services, pet cancer research and service and therapy animals.
