Hello Friends,

We would be grateful if you would consider supporting Halfway to Home. Our rescue is funded by adoption fees and the contributions of many kind and generous people who care about assisting dogs in need. For over 20 years Halfway to Home has been helping dogs in the Antelope Valley find permanent loving homes. Through our efforts, more than 7000 dogs have been helped and EVERY dog that leaves HWTH leaves spayed or neutered. 

We employ a small staff to feed and clean up after the 70 dogs in our care. Veterinarian fees are our largest expense, followed by dog food. Our greatest need is monetary donations to cover these ongoing expenses. However, if you prefer to help by ordering from our Amazon wishlist, we have compiled a list of items we use daily at the rescue. 

We are thankful for the outpouring of love and support we have received from the community over the years and Halfway to Home continues to exist because of that support. 

With Thanks!

Suzanne and the crew at Halfway to Home

Special Needs Dogs

In the past few years we have had GoFundMe campaigns designed to raise extra funds for some special needs dogs.  These dogs had medical expenses above and beyond what is usually required to prepare a dog for adoption. Our amazing donors made the following outcomes possible.



Joe (originally named Kujo) was found in the summer of 2017 wandering in the desert and was likely hit by a car. He had a broken wrist and damaged shoulder that ultimately healed on its own, but left him with a noticeable limp.  Joe was adopted December 2018

Coco was born in 2017 with a deformed front left leg which required amputation when she was just 4.5 months old. She made a fast and complete recovery and was adopted by her foster family. She enjoys rambunctious play with her two terrier "brothers". 



Amy came to us in 2017 with a severely crushed right foreleg. Between October 2017 and May 2018 Amy underwent three surgeries and massive amounts of antibiotics to save her leg. She has been cleared for adoption by our vet, however the leg is still healing inside, so she’ll need to take it easy for awhile. Amy is still looking for a permanent home.

At the end of August 2018 we encountered a lost dog in dire need of medical attention. He had a severely injured right eye when found which our Veterinarian removed immediately. He also has a clouded left eye making him legally blind, which means the eye may be of some use helping him discern shadows and light, but he can’t see as he should. We have already noticed how well he is listening and adapting, he is very intelligent and highly trainable.  Atlas found his FOREVER HOME in December 2018.
