Due to the recent Stay at Home order issued by the state effective on 4/3/2020 Halifax Humane Society will close to the public. Until this time (Thursday, 4/2/2020) we need your help to empty the shelter. We will have extended hours on Thursday from 10 am to 6 pm, still by appointment only to assist customers. All adoption fees have been waived! Please help us empty the shelter. Thank you for your support. Stay safe and beginning on Friday, stay home.

Stay healthy and safe, follow CDC sanitation guidelines, and please be thoughtful of others whose immune systems may not be as strong as yours. If you don’t have to go out, don’t, whether you think you have symptoms or not.

Our staff will still be working to service our community's animals.

Humane Education is made available to any and all schools, businesses, civic groups, etc. through speaking engagements, tours and material. In addition, Halifax Humane Society has a focus on keeping pets with their families through animal training and behavior classes.
