H.A.L.O.'s Little Trooper Fund
Angel Ears began as a means of promoting humane education, adoption of rescue dogs and for the provision of supportive intervention by Registered Therapy Dogs to the community of children, disabled and the elderly. In 2006, several H.A.L.O. volunteers and their canine pals, all rescue dogs with stories of their own, committed to becoming registered therapy teams and R.E.A.D. trained. LEARN MORE
The Feral Cat Network (FCN) is a H.A.L.O. Co-Op concerned with the overwhelming number of feral cats and abandoned, unaltered strays in East County. FCN educates the public about the benefits of trap-neuter-release (TNR); provides traps; offers information about spaying, neutering, and monitoring of feral cat populations; and educates the community about responsible pet ownership and alternatives to pet abandonment.  LEARN MORE
H.A.L.O.'s Little Trooper Fund was started to help cover the additional care costs for animals that come into the program that have extra medical needs that go above and beyond the normal cost for foster care and sometimes would not make it through the shelter system.  LEARN MORE

Pet Food Pantry-Berkeley Humane Society
Berkeley Humane's Pet Food Pantry program provides free pet food to low-income pet guardians in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. One of the most common reasons for pet relinquishment is financial difficulty, and the Pet Food Pantry aims to help struggling owners keep beloved pets in their homes. Since its inception in 2010, Pet Food Pantry has distributed over 7,000 pounds of pet food. 

Pet Food Pantry-East Bay SPCA
Monthly, residents of Alameda or Contra Costa County can visit the East Bay SPCA’s Pet Food Pantry to receive supplemental food to help feed their dogs and cats. All recipient animals must be spayed or neutered and up-to-date on vaccinations to be eligible. 
We assist struggling families and the homeless in the Contra Costa County with dog and cat food. Often times we find that those families need a bit more for their Furry Friend(s). They often need new bedding, leashes, collars, clothing ect.
