“We are going to showcase a lot of dogs that can’t go to adoption events,” Willen said. “I think it is really going to be cool.”
Willen HALO, a nonprofit located at 3346 Jasper Road in Xenia, typically teams up with Petsmart for adoption events, but fears of spread of the coronavirus makes that impossible right now due to fears of the virus.
“People are interested in adoption right now and we have a lot of people who are interested in fostering because they are home,” she said.
Willen said HALO’s staff and volunteers will practice social distancing during the Facebook Live as advised by governmental and health care officials.
Fosters parents will remain in their cars during the event.
HALO provides transitional shelter for behavior dogs pulled from the shelter only.
Its dogs go through basic commands training and are deemed well-adjusted before being placed up for adoption.
The dogs are microchipped, neutered or spayed and have been treated against heart worm and have their shots .
Willen said HALO (Helping Animals Lost and Orphaned) will even provide crates for dogs that need them.
The puppers featured below are set to be showcased during the Facebook Live, which is to include a tour of HALO.
