Halifax Humane Society
The Halifax Humane Society is a 501 (c)(3) private nonprofit organization located in Volusia County that was founded in 1937. As an open door animal shelter, finding homes for animals through adoption programs helps us continue to service over 25,000 animals annually. As the voice for animals in the Greater Daytona Beach area, the shelter (equipped with a spay/neuter clinic) aids in protecting animals from cruel and neglectful treatment, provides happy homes to thousands of four legged friends, and educates and provides the community with a wide variety of services and programs.
