The Fur Ball Gala and Silent Auction is the Halifax Humane Society’s premier fundraising event. Last year, more than 750 of the area's most influential community members attended the event which raised over $90,000 for the shelter. It was a great evening of fun music, food, drinks, and a riveting auction. The 2012 event featured exciting live auction items including stays at vacation homes, limo services, bi-plane rides, Bahamas trips, electronics, and sports memorabilia. Our silent auction included items such as jewelry from Molto Bella, golf foursomes, hotel vacations, and much more. Following dinner, the Chocolate Tasting Lounge will open for sampling. Local companies who have confirmed their participation include Amber's Jewel, All From Scratch, Angell & Phellps, Hilton Hotel, Ovations, Yum Yum Cupcake Truck, For Cupcake Sake, and Charthouse.

We are an open-door animal shelter that receives over 15,000 animals annually through city contracts and owner surrenders. Kennel and cage capacity can comfortably house approximately 350 animals per day and is usually full.
Equipped with a spay/neuter clinic, we perform early-age spay/neuter surgeries to ensure that all adopted animals are altered before entering a new home. Subsidized spay/neuter surgeries are also available at Halifax Humane Society's Redinger Spay/Neuter Clinic, located at 600 Mason Avenue in Daytona Beach.
The Halifax Humane Society exists to protect animals from cruel, neglectful and exploitative treatment. It is the belief of the Society that all living creatures possess an intrinsic value, which is manifested in its creation. Further, the Society believes that mankind must become a responsible steward of animals which he has domesticated and brought under his control.
