HALT DOGS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION

CLICK FOR DESCRIPTION OF CURRENT HALT DOGS
 

HALT is Humans and Animals Learning Together, a non-profit program supported by the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. Through a series of classes, a canine obedience instructor helps adolescent student trainers teach basic obedience commands to dogs. 

Suitable dogs are selected from a local animal shelter and medically and behaviorally screened. They are given a standard series of inoculations, neutered or spayed, and boarded at the class site.

Student trainers are adolescents from residential centers for treatment of substance abuse, behavioral or alienation problems. They are selected by the staff of their agency and are transported to the class site for the classes.

HALT dogs have all:

  • been spayed or neutered

  • received appropriate shots & heartworm preventative

  • have been microchipped

  • completed basic obedience training

An $150 adoption fee is required which will go towards the support future HALT classes. 

For information regarding HALT dogs please call Catatoga Kennels (865) 693-5540.
