In 1987 a companion program to the Human-Animal Bond in Tennessee (H.A.B.I.T.) program, the Humans and Animals Learning Together (HALT) was established as a joint venture of the College of Veterinary Medicine and the College of Social Work. The program is especially designed for adolescents with drug or behavior problems. It pairs young people with dogs rescued from animal shelters. Humans and animals learn together—the youths learning to take control of their own lives while training the dogs.
