🐾Pupdate on Reggie!🐾

From his adoptive family: It has been just over five months since Reggie joined our family, and we can't imagine our home without him now. He is the most mild mannered and patient boy with our kids, but can turn into a puppy when it's time to wrestle or play, and he zooms all through the backyard. The backyard is his favorite place to run, patrol for squirrels and sniff any chance he gets and he loves to swipe the baseball from the kids and play a game of keep away. He is the best snuggler at the end of a busy day and snores away on the couch in his favorite blanket. Thank you for choosing us for his forever home; he is everything we were looking for in our new family member... however, we could do without the digging.🤣

🌸Charo asks every day, "Where oh where is my furever family?"

Charo is a very smart, friendly 2-year-old Bull Terrier mix who loves walks. She is house/crate trained and takes food and treats nicely. Her foster family is slowly working on basic commands but as of right now, she knows sit pretty well. The closer she can be to a person for scratches, the happier she is. Occasionally, she gets zoomies when she gets really excited. On rare moments, she will still play with toys like a puppy. Recently, she has been around two submissive dogs and has gotten along fine with them with a slow introduction. She has been fine with cats so far as well. Charo would do best with a fenced in yard and with a family that has older children.

🐾Spend your next Caturday night with a fabulous feline--me, Miko!

I'm a beautiful medium hair, 1-year-old black and white kitty. I was rescued from an overcrowded shelter. Luckily, I ended up in the best foster home. My foster dad said I am one of the sweetest and gentlest cats he has fostered. I love belly rubs, being hugged, and being picked up. I purr a lot! I would be excellent for a family with young children. I like to chase and play with toys. I need to be the sole cat in the household. I am litter box trained and very sweet! Overall, I would make the purrfect addition to your home. If interested, submit your online application today at! Based out of West Bloomfield, Mich.

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.
