Tickets still available for HALO’s ‘Chari-Tea’

April 9, 2013

Tickets are still available for the inaugural “Chari-Tea” fundraiser to benefit the Hood County Animal Lovers Organization (HALO), officials with the all-volunteer group said.

The Chari-Tea (charity) event is set for 2-4 p.m. on Sunday, April 21 at the Bentwater Activity Center. The cut-off date for buying tickets, which are $20 each, is this Monday.

The guests at the event will be offered a selection of teas, finger sandwiches, scones and desserts, and be treated to live entertainment. Treats from a bake sale will also be available for purchase.

HALO, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, began rescuing and finding foster homes for pets in the spring of 2011.

Since then, the group has placed more than 200 pets in carefully screened homes, organizers said. Also, HALO rescued 130 dogs in 2012 – not counting those transported to rescues in other areas.

Adoption days staged by HALO volunteers are held weekly at various Granbury businesses. HALO makes certain that every pet receives a medical exam, vaccinations, heartworm testing and is spayed or neutered before being placed for adoption.

The group recently implemented a Spay/Neuter Incentive Program (SNIP), which provides spay/neuter and vaccination services to animal lovers who are dealing with economic hardship.

HALO has been playing host for the annual Putts for Mutts Golf Tournament, plus Bow Wow Trick or Treat held in October on the downtown square, along with the Kroger Neighbor-to-Neighbor program, bake sales, garage sales and aluminum can collection efforts.
