HAL Pals Pet Adoption Program

Everyone deserves to find a home! You pick your favorite furry friend and we’ll pick up the adoption fee. Nevada Rural Housing Authority is happy to sponsor the adoption so you can focus on what’s most important — turning your new house into a home.

We get rural Nevadans – and their pets – home!

How It Works

An exclusive benefit for Home At Last™ Down Payment Assistance program participants, new homeowners will receive a certificate to present to their local, participating shelter within 60 days of purchase their home – and Home At Last™ will cover the adoption fees*!
