Q- Are you a no-kill shelter?

A- Our Live Release Rate (LRR) has been over 90% (93.5% in 2021), since January 2020. The animal welfare industry recognizes animal shelters with a 90% or better LRR, as no-kill shelters. The animals that we do euthanize are either terminally ill (cancer, leukemia, etc.), injured beyond saving (encounter with a vehicle or wildlife, etc.), or their behavior is deemed as a danger to society and we cannot in good conscious adopt the animal to a family with children or other animals. We explore every possible option before euthanizing an animal. We do not euthanize due to capacity constraints. We partner with many rescues, enlist the help of foster parents, and recruit professional animal behavior professionals to help with behavior cases.

 

Q- Do you offer general veterinary care (vaccinations, checkups, prescribe medications, etc.) for people's pets?

A- No, we only offer veterinary care for the shelter animals in our care. Our Redinger Spay/Neuter Clinic offers spay/neuter services for people's pets. For more information about Redinger Spay/Neuter Clinic, click on the icon below. 

There are over 50 local veterinary offices in the general Daytona Beach area. Contact a veterinarian to care for your personal pet.

 

Q- Is there a fee to surrender my pet?

A- No, there is no required fee, but donations are encouraged. Appointments are required to surrender your pet. Email admissions@halifaxhumanesociety.org to request an appointment. Please consider every possible option before surrendering your pet. If you are having difficult times financially, we can help provide pet food until you recover. Tell us the reason for surrendering, and maybe we can help you keep your beloved best friend.

 

Q- Will you come to my home and catch a feral cat?

A- No, we are not animal control or a TNR (trap, neuter, return) organization that is sanctioned and licensed by the county to trap animals. These organizations bring the animals to us for spay/neuter services. Contact your local Animal Control agency. They are typically part of your local police department.
