Rescue and re-home unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats from private homes and municipal shelters and place them into responsible homes.
Prevent unwanted births via sterilization of all dogs/cats placed via Almost Home.
Bring the shelter services into the community by assisting families with their pet needs, therefore, preventing them from surrendering their animals to local municipal shelters, which will help decrease the amount of animals that are brought there.
Humane Education: Enter school districts, especially in low-income areas, to teach the children responsible pet ownership, compassion and pet friendship.
Community Training: Supportive training advice for families that are having behavior problems with their pets. Offer free to low cost, depending on family’s financial situation, to prevent the family from having to surrender their pet to a local municipal shelter as a last resort.
Training Wheels: Support services for low-income families. Allows families in difficult financial situations to keep their pets in their homes rather than surrender them to a municipal shelter. Offer food, shelter, pet education, and medical (spay/neutering and other needed medical services) at free or low cost, depending on the family’s situation.
Almost Home Animal Rescue and Adoption, Inc. is a non-profit organization that was formed by a group of dedicated and compassionate volunteers with many years of shelter experience. Almost Home maintains a no-kill policy towards animals and treats families that come to us with respect.
Our goal is to find each family a dog or cat that makes their home complete. We also help families to keep the pets they currently have. Our mission at Almost Home is to rescue and re-home unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats from private homes and municipal shelters, and to place them into responsible homes.
Almost Home's Goals are proactive and preventative:
Re-home unwanted and displaced dogs and cats into responsible, loving homes.
Prevent unwanted births through low-cost spay and neuter.
Prevent dogs and cats from being surrendered to animal shelters by their families due to the lack of support and/or resources.
Provide humane education for children to help them become more humane adults.
