German Shepherd Rescued

Almost Home featured in People Magazine!

Nikki the German Shepherd spent months on the streets of Detroit before Almost Home Animal Rescue League and South Lyon Murphy Lost Animal Recovery saved the dog.

Hi 👋🏻 I’m Valencia a 7 week old sweet heart looking for the purrrfect home. He’s a kitten who has thrived on any reassurance, and is growing every day in his confidence and joy. A distinct quality he was found to have when rescued at 2 weeks, was his “motor” running, his purring determination, and we believe his mom simply must have placed that in him, her parting words, to keep going, keep trying, don’t give up! Just weaned and on solid foods, Val is litter box trained, growing in his independence, being taught all the proper ways to conduct himself. There are times when he craves, though, more than anything, the comfort of being held, not being alone, and so his adoptive feline Mommy brings him to her side, kisses him, lets him rest on her back, and when she’s done her part, his Foster Home Mommy does the same! 😊 Would you have it in your heart to continue the comfort this sweet boy, and tell him his life from now on, is going to be as peaceful as the soft blue seas of his blue and gold eyes, and as gentle as the kisses he gives?

Dorothy is a 4-year-old super sweet female terrier mix. She is ready to join your family! 😻

Hello everyone! l am "Dorothy". My foster calls me Dottie and I respond so well to my name!! I am 19 pounds and up to date on my shots. I am seriously a big cuddle bug. I love to sit in everyone`s lap and will fall over for tummy rubs. I would prefer to be a sole pet, as the only spoiled dog! I would prefer your love all to myself. I love squeaky toys and treats. I am very food motivated and willing to please, but I mostly just want to be curled up next to you on a chair napping or getting pets and kisses. I am trained to go potty outside but sometimes I need a little reminder by my foster mom to get up and go outside! My foster mommy also says I`m like a little baby because sometimes I like to be picked up and held just like one. I have so much love to give and I know I will bring you as much joy as you bring me. Wouldn`t you love to be my new family? I promise you will fall in love with me. Please fill out an application so you can meet me! ❤

Meet Gail and her daughter, Lauren of Almost Home

About Us

Almost Home Animal Rescue League was founded in 1999 by Gail Montgomery Schwartz and Lauren Montgomery Anchill.  The mother and daughter team became disheartened while volunteering at various animal shelters.

Being of the ‘never kill’ philosophy, they were disturbed by the endless euthanasia practiced simply because animals were born homeless and society felt there was no place for them.

Gail and Lauren wanted a huge difference in our animals’ lives.  Almost Home became the first Never Kill 501 (c)(3) animal rescue organization.  Almost Home is the one and only pure never kill organization.  It’s truly a place for dogs and cats to not only feel safe but to be safe.

We are so proud of our work and all the people who are instrumental in saving lives with us.  Here’s to being the model never kill animal rescue.  Love to all.  Peace and good life to all.
