HALTER Project's Mission

HALTER Project’s mission is to connect the whole community by providing resources, education, and financial support to First Responders and Volunteer Groups working together to help animals in emergencies and disasters.

Many communities lack comprehensive plans, resources, and trained responders to address the life-saving needs of large animals in an emergency. Julie Atwood founded HALTER to raise awareness and promote emergency preparedness throughout the west, where wildfires, floods and earthquakes are a constant threat, animals are transported continually for recreational and commercial purposes, and accidents happen every day. Though it was initially focused on Sonoma County, today HALTER has been tapped for mentoring throughout Northern California and other rural regions, where ranching and owning horses and farm animals are fundamental to the region’s culture, economy, and lifestyle.
