After Hurricane Michael, Felines Get Much Needed Help

The Dothan Police Foundation Inc. is an independent, non-for-profit organization established to improve community relationships through the Police Education and Traning program, the Community First Initiative and the Pro-Life Animal Service Program working with Dothan Animal shelter and other animal groups. 

Because of Hurricane Michael, shelters experienced a higher number of animal, canine and felines in the last quarter of 2018 and the first quarter of 2019. Thanks to a food donation with Halo’s partners, and, the Dothan Police Foundation is making a difference in Alabama and surrounding communities. Here’s what they had to say about their recent Halo donation:

“We would again like to express our sincere appreciation for helping to feed our felines during one of the peak times at our shelter due to hurricane Michael. We rely on generous donations such as Halo Food/Greater Good, food drives, our local community, the Wiregrass Spay & Neuter Clinic, animal group partners as well as other sources to help accomplish our mission to save as many animals as possible. It is our goal to all but eliminate our euthanasia rate.”

Thank you Dothan Police Foundation for making a WHOLE lot of difference for pets in your community.

    Thank you, again, Halo!!!! We gratefully appreciate Halo’s commitment to assisting animals in need of assistance and thank you for producing a quality product. Since switching over to Halo, our cat’s health and vitality have improved considerably.

    it surprises me how many people will leave for safety yet they will leave their pets to fend for themselves. Thank heavens there are people like you who care and will help them survive.

    This is just wonderful! I’m so happy to know there are people who really care about the animals! My husband and I have been taking in stray cats since 1991. At the moment we have 20 in our care. We love them all and give them a forever home with us.

    Sadly, there is still much to be done in the area of Mexico Beach. Thousands of trees are still down and accessible is problematic in some spots. Fire is a MAJOR concern. And another tropical system would be a true catastrophe.
