Home At Last Animal Haven (HALAH) is a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, supported solely by your tax-deductible donations, which provide a no-kill environment for friendless animals until they are adopted into loving homes.


Home At Last Animal Haven (HALAH) is an animal rescue hoping to provide a second chance at life for friendless animals. It is a rural facility where dogs romp and rest together in their yards.

Who we are

The normal luxuries associated with many animal shelters are not present at HALAH.  There are no tiny, sterile cages where the animals live while hoping to be adopted.  HALAH has no roof or tile floors to protect visitors from getting dirty.  It is a Haven where animals can enjoy the country air, the earth beneath their paws, birds overhead, and space to play with yard mates until their furever, loving family comes along.

How we started

Home At Last Animal Haven began on a little piece of land out in the country.  Over forty years ago, Godley was a very rural area, far removed from the Metroplex.  This property was chosen due to the small tank (pond) sitting near the road, which now provides a home for many turtles, fish, and a quick swim for personal dog residents.  The property has been enhance by numerous years of planting trees for shade, beauty, and breeze.  The fences creating the dog yards were constructed in various dimensions for grouping similar breeds or sizes, as well as providing shade.
