Homeless Animal Lifeline (HAL), founded in 2004, is an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501c3 humane education, caregiver assistance, and animal rescue organization located in New Jersey.
As part of our ongoing efforts to increase the circle of compassion to include all animals, we are proud to have created programs that not only focus on animal adoption, but also address other important animal-related issues.
Many people care about making the world a better place for animals, but don’t know where to start. Our intention is to help you recognize that YOU can easily make a difference and to give you ideas on how.
Acts of violence or neglect made against animals are considered animal cruelty.
Intentional cruelty is when an individual purposely inflicts physical harm or injury on an animal. Neglect is the failure to provide an animal with the most basic of requirements of food, water, shelter, sanitation, and veterinary care. Victims of neglect are sometimes forced to live in cruel conditions, causing them to get sick and possibly die.
When you help animals who are abused or neglected, you are promoting respect for life and a safer, more caring community.
