Almost Home Animal Rescue

Animals are Almost Home until they find their furever home!

A foster-based, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to finding loving, forever homes for homeless animals.

Hours by Appointment Only.

Kitten season typically takes place in the spring and summer months, starting around April. During this time, shelters are flooded with mamas and babies. Shelters and rescues almost always need donations and foster parents during kitten season. Adopting or fostering a kitten will provide you with hours of fun and entertainment. Of course, a kitten’s favorite toy is another kitten, so you may want to consider adopting a second cat. Two kittens growing up together will be well socialized, and interested in exploring new things. 🐱🐱

About Whiskey/Brian:
He is a golden-doodle/Cattle dog mix! 8 months old (9/23/22) and a big cuddly pup! He does great with older kids and dogs, unsure about cats but I think he would be ok. Whiskey/Brian has been learning a schedule, playing with toys, and trying very hard to go potty outside. He has a wonderful loving temperament and will love his new family so much! I hardly shed and I do well with a Chinchilla too and other dogs! I’m such a good boy!

My name is Lucy! I am a beautiful 1 year old Shepherd. I came to Almost Home as a pup and sadly, my owners can no longer keep me. I’m hoping to find a new family to love me and be my best friend! I am good with doggies around my size (no small doggies) and I am super sweet and loving with a lot of energy! I need an active family that will keep me busy and take me for walks! I promise to love you!!!

From my owners

She’s great with other dogs. In fact, I think she is happiest with other dogs, as she learns and plays with them joyfully.

She’s also wonderful with kids, she gets excited to see them and naturally as a puppy, wants to join in on the fun and play with their toys! We’ve never had any concern about safety or aggressiveness with our young kids, Navy is a lover! We have 4 kids, ages 1-7 years old and she loves to be loved. ❤️

We still have a handful of pups looking to secure fosters to make their flight ✈️ to freedom, will you help them?🐾❤️ Attention all fosters and potential fosters we are still in need of fosters to secure additional dogs for a large Transport coming from Texas on March 31st that we are calling our Freedom Flight ✈️ ! We can only take as many as we secure fosters for and their at an overcrowded rural shelter where there limited on space. Please please sign up to foster if you can or take a dog or pups or siblings they need to be safe! ...

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.
