About Us



Halfway Home Rescue Inc.

About Our Rescue Group…

Halfway Home Rescue Inc. is a 501(c) 3 non=profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of hundreds of  abused, abandoned, and homeless animals each year; locally and beyond. We provide spay/neuter and other veterinary care to each animal that passes through our doors. Our phones ring 24/7 and we try our best to keep up with the calls, as space and finances allow. No one takes a salary. Since our founding in 2004, more than 5,000 lives have been saved.

Most of the animals that come to our rescue, have suffered lives of abuse, neglect, and abandonment. Often times we have no knowledge of the exact history, when they enter our rescue. Our volunteers work with every dog or cat as much as needed, providing medical care  and emotional love. 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 economic changes have caused many people to face unemployment, foreclosure, and unforeseen circumstances. 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 offset these costs, volunteers hold small fundraisers throughout the year including: T-shirt sales, benefit night at local restaurants, pet food drive, bake sales, and comedy night events.

Our Partnership:

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.
