Happy Holidays!

I'm Teddy!


I’ve had a very sad and painful life.

I was dumped at an overcrowded shelter down South. I was very, very sick and my skin was terribly infected, it hurt and burned so bad. I was sick to my stomach and it was hard to breathe. That’s because I also had heartworm disease, without treatment I would die. Sadly, the shelter put me on their euthanasia list.
Almost Home saw my picture on a plea for help. The next thing I knew, a nice woman walked into my kennel. She had homemade food for me. I cuddled in her arms and she cried and told me everything is going to be alright. She took me out of my kennel, filled out some paperwork and said to me, “you have no idea how wonderful your life is going to be!”

Then I was in her car, on our way to Almost Home in Michigan! As we drove, I started to shiver and shake. She took my paw, hugged me, and wrapped me in a blanket… I felt safe.

I’m in the care of Almost Home now. BOY, LIFE IS GOOD!

Won’t you please help Almost Home save more innocent animals like me?

Wishing you a Happy Holiday, Peace and Joy to you, your loved ones, and to the homeless animals whose future depends on all of us!

🐾Meet the sweet little Shadow! 🐾

I am a gray short haired tabby, about 10 years old. I am very nice but shy at first. I am looking for a new home because my previous owner and I became homeless. I was staying in a cold garage until an Almost Home foster took me in. I like to be a single cat but do well with small dogs. I am just looking for a warm home and someone to give me all the pets and love I deserve.

If interested please submit your application at now! Located out of West Bloomfield, Mich.

❤It's Wishlist Wednesday!❤

This is the best time of the year to donate to your favorite local shelter! We are asking for much-needed items, which includes puppy and kitten dry food, puppy toys, pee pads, and kitty litter. We DESPERATELY need puppy pee pads for our next transfer on January 24th. They are soooo important to get as these furbabies go into foster homes! If all of our friends could send just an item or two, we would be better able to serve our rescue dogs and cats.

We updated our Amazon wishlist to make it easier for you! Visit our wishlist at:

⛔ Foster Needed ⛔

I am Brianna, a 15-week old pup, wired hair terrier. I was treated for mange and will have two doses of treatment so my fur has come in so nice. I am feeling so much better thanks to Almost Home and the kind vet. I was saved from an overcrowded shelter and now on my way to full recovery! I need a new foster ASAP because of my current fosters allergies. Can you please provide a warm safe home for me until I am adopted?

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.
