Program to cover pet adoption fees at participating shelters
Reno, Nev.– Home At Last™ (HAL), a program of the Nevada Rural Housing Authority (NRHA), has launched its HAL Pals Program, which aims to help new homeowners achieve the next dream on their list: having a pet.
An exclusive benefit for Home At Last™ Down Payment Assistance program participants, homebuyers will receive a certificate to present at a participating shelter (listed below) within 60 days of their home purchase, and Home At Last™ will cover the adoption fees*.
“We believe everyone deserves to find a home, even our furry friends,” Diane Arvizo, NRHA director of Homebuyer Services, said. “You pick your new 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.”
Homebuyers interested in the Down Payment Assistance program should visit nvrural.org/find-a-lender-realtor to use the Home At Last™ lender search tool and connect with a certified lender in their area or email HAL@NVRural.org. For more information about the HAL Pals program, visit HALPals.org.
