The Halifax Humane Society exists to protect animals from cruel, neglectful and exploitative treatment.
It is the belief of the Society that all living creatures possess an intrinsic value, which is manifested in its creation. Further, the Society believes that mankind must become a responsible steward of animals which he has domesticated and brought under his control.
The Society shall maintain programs and services, which embrace that principle:
Maintain a shelter facility to provide for the needs of lost, forsaken and abandoned animals;
Educate and continually acquaint the citizens, particularly children, with the ethics of kindness and compassion, thereby engendering respect for all living beings;
Investigate complaints of animal abuse and correct those situations by way of education, or if need be prosecution;
Prevent the overpopulation of domestic animals by providing affordable spay and neuter opportunities to the public, while making certain that animals adopted from the Shelter never contribute to the problem.
Halifax Humane Society, the 2012 National CLASSY Award winner for Animal Advocacy & Services, is a 501(c)(3) private nonprofit organization servicing the Greater Daytona Beach area in Volusia County, Florida since 1937. It exists to protect animals from cruel, neglectful, and exploitative treatment. Halifax Humane Society is an open-door animal shelter that refuses service to no animal in need.
Halifax Humane Society has the kennel and cage capacity to provide care for approximately 350 animals per day. Through generous donations of time and money, the Halifax Humane Society provides shelter for lost and abandoned animals, delivers humane education to its citizens, investigates complaints of animal cruelty, and prevents overpopulation of animals by offering affordable spay/neuter opportunities.
