ORGANIZATION: Almost Home Foundation

  • 4 people are interested

Do you love dogs? Do you have room in your heart and home for a rescue dog? If so, consider becoming a foster parent for Almost Home Foundation. We are dedicated to rescuing stray, neglected, and abandoned adoptable cats and dogs and finding them forever homes. The best way to do that is by first placing them in a foster home. Boarding kennels are often noisy and frightening for a dog. A home is a much nicer place for the dog to live. Almost Home will work to place a dog that matches your experience, preferences, and lifestyle. We also provide all the supplies, cover medical expenses and provide dog training (if needed).

As a foster parent, you will:

  • Provide love and attention for a dog while it is on its journey to a forever home.
  • Attend Saturday adoption shows and speak with potential adopters. Can’t stay for the show? We have volunteer handlers who can help.
  • Receive unconditional love from a dog who knows it is now safe.
  • Experience the joy of finding a dog a forever home.
  • Save a life! Fostering a dog frees up a space in a shelter for another dog in need.

Mission Statement

Almost Home Foundation is a nonprofit, all volunteer, no-kill animal rescue funded solely by private donations. We have no paid employees. Almost Home Foundation is committed to reducing the number of homeless and unwanted companion animals through education programs, spay /neuter programs, and the responsible re-homing of dogs and cats through adoption programs. Almost Home Foundation does not have a physical building to house animals. We rely on volunteers who dedicate their time, homes and hearts for our animals until permanent, loving homes can be found. Adoptable animals in our care will be kept as long as it takes to find a suitable home. Almost Home Foundation does not discriminate against animals based on age, breed, color of fur or physical disability. Our ultimate goal is to eliminate the need to ever have a healthy adoptable animal euthanized.


Almost Home Foundation was founded by 5 animal lovers. We felt that by creating this organization that we can make a difference and save many lives. Meet the Co-Founders. We are an all volunteer, registered, not-for-profit 501c3 charity organization dedicated to rescuing stray and abandoned cats and dogs from the villages of the Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, Palatine, Barrington, Barrington Hills, South Barrington, and Inverness. We also save animals from High Kill Shelters. All of your donations are tax deductible and are used for the animals. There are no paid members of our organization.
