About Us


Halfway Home Rescue Inc.

About Our Rescue Group…

Halfway Home Rescue Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of abused, abandoned, and homeless animals and providing a safe haven for these animals until a permanent home can be found. While in our care, these animals are examined by a veterinarian and given proper medical attention (including spay/neuter). Our phones ring 24/7 and we try our best to keep up with the calls, as space and finances allow.

As a non-profit rescue organization, Halfway Home Rescue prides itself on saving the lives of the underdog-the old,sick,injured, and unwanted. Our hearts are often bigger than our wallets, but we do our best to provide these animals with the absolute best in veterinary care and safe place until they are ready for forever homes. We rely 100% on donations.

All donations are 100% tax deductible.

The animals that come to us have suffered lives of abuse, neglect, and abandonment. We do not have any knowledge of their history prior to entry into HHR. Our goal is to place each animal in a home that most suits each animal needs.

How Did HHR start…

Halfway Home Rescue began as a small organization, focusing on Trap/Neuter/Return of feral cats, as well as socializing and adoption of friendly kittens. Over the past decade, the econmic changes have caused many people to face unempoyment, foreclosure, and unforeseen circumtances. Therefore increasing the need for organizations like ours. Due to the increased volume of animals in need, there is also an increase expenses for basic essentials such as food and veterinary care. To offdet these costs, voluteers hold small fundrasiers throughout the year including: T-shirt sales, benefit nightsat local restaurants, pet food drive, bake sales, and comedy night events.

Our Partnship:

We value the ¬†partnerships we have made with organizations sharing our passion for saving lives. Since November of 2008, we have been a PetSmart Charities Adoption Partner and now occupy the adoption center in the North Haven,CT and Orange,CT stores. In the fall of 2014, HHR became a rescue partner of North Shore Animal League, which twice-monthly loans us their mobile adoption unit in an effort to increase the number of animals finding forever homes. In January 2015, HHR began a partnership with GreaterGood.org and was awarded Shelter of the Month by Animal Planet’s Jackson Galaxy; My Cat From Hell.
