The Humanity For Dogs Story

The Founder of Humanity For Dogs is a person who owes his life to his dogs. Over a decade living in the Middle East, he nearly died four times in the course of terrorist attacks. Upon his return in 2011, he struggled with the emotional impact of those experiences. On New Years' Day 2012, he adopted an abandoned, special needs Labrador named Shian that helped him regain his smile & his ability to prosper in life again. Shian is currently 11 years old and 100% blind - but remains his service dog & his greatest joy. Humanity For Dogs is our founder's way of paying that love forward. Pictured above is Chayton & Shian (before his blindness). Chayton also has two other canine children - Usdi (Cherokee for Baby) and Tohee (Cherokee for Spiritual Balance) - both Great Pyrenees mixes.

Humanity For Dogs is a canine kindness organization that is developing a dog rescue/sanctuary near Asheville to focus primarily on adoption-challenged dogs of all breeds & ages, and to provide: 1. Rescue, and foster dogs from kill animal shelters, 2. Provide lifetime sanctuary to dogs either medically or behaviorally unadoptable, 3. Maintain a ZERO kill approach to dog rescue with the exception of untreatable medical suffering, and 4. Provide ongoing medical care, foster homes, and re-home dogs displaced by natural disasters. Humanity For Dogs is currently applying for non-profit status in North Carolina and subsequently for 501c(3) tax-exempt status. We guarantees that 100% of donations flow directly to canine kindness & support operations.

"Humanity For Dogs is so-named as we go beyond what is considered a "humane" approach to dogs - we treat them as if they were human beings. In our life experience, dogs are sentient beings endowed with intelligence, self-awareness, and some form of consciousness. We believe that dogs have a soul. And therefore, they are deserving of medical care as a human right, and to be treated with the dignity & respect deserved by these noble creatures who contain all of the virtues of humanity without any of the vices. We want you to know who we are and that we will provide life, love & care to any canine angel that we are honored to caretake. Our slogan & motto is GUARD THE LOVE! and we have established an organizational goal of rescuing 10,000 dogs over the next 10 years"....Chayton Alo - Our Founder

Our Strategy

Financial Self-Sufficiency Within 24 Months

Humanity For Dogs launched on January 1, 2020 and is developing a canine kindness organization with a goal to be financially self-sufficient by 2022. We are in negotiations to acquire a prime property that contains a custom-built canine rescue facility in addition to a commercial dog/cat boarding facility. Either through this acquisition or through the purchase & build-out of raw land, we intend to operate an array of pet-related, commercial operations that are incorporated into our non-profit status, with all profits dedicated to supporting our canine rescue operations. In addition to a boarding facility, we are contemplating the following businesses: grooming, burial & cemetery, and a retail pet store. The synergies are significant between rescue and boarding as an example - every dog that we rehome will represent future boarding clients, and every boarding client is a potential foster or adoptee family. And, we believe that Asheville residents will choose to utilize our commercial enterprises with the knowledge that 100% of profits support canine rescue.
