Ha=Lo Project Terry Jester Rocky Mountain Rawhide Powder Valley Poodles Using a fake Disabled Veterans service dog non-profit group to get dogs for her puppy mill. Wellington Colorado
We donated a Bulldog puppy on Aug 31th 2013 to the Ha=Lo Project/First United Methodist Church to be used as a service for a soldier with PTSD. We were told by Terry Jester ( Runs the program) that soldiers want Bulldogs and not Poodles. We were happy to provide one of our puppies to a returning soldier as a service dog. Tax time rolls around and we need the federal tax Id number which was not on our receipt for the donation. We go to the Halo website for contact info and in no longer exists.
We started to do some research on the Halo Project after getting the run around from Terry Jester and the church. We found out our puppy is living in a foster home and is being used to breed dogs at Terry Jesters puppy mill. Terry Jester is using the military soldiers with disabilities/Halo Project/First United Methodist Church to add dogs to breeding program all the while misleading potential donors that their beloved animals are going into the Soldier programs.
We are heart broken. We do not donated breeding dogs, but we were more than happy to give back to one of our soldiers. When I emailed Terry Jester she tells me she doesn't want into my personal business and she is cutting all ties with me.
So here we sit, no federal tax ID for our donation, our puppy is living in foster care, is being used as a breeding dog and the program had no intention of ever putting our dog in the therapy dog program but to use him in a puppy mill. I'm lost.
Terry Jester says the church has everything and the church says they have nothing to do with it they only let Terry use their facility. Terry Jester is using the church and the Halo Project to cover and fund her puppy mill. We are at a loss. We just want our dog back. Terry Jester and the Ha=Lo project were on the news in May of 2013 for losing 3 standard poodle that were in training in the mountains near Rist Canyon
