ADOPT A DOG MONTH
DEVOTED, OBEDIENT, GIVING
October is the national adopt a dog month. This campaign is to bring awareness to the public of just how many adoptable dogs are waiting for loving forever homes. Thousands of adoptable dogs are euthanized every day in our nation. This breaks our hearts. We here at Almost Home Foundation (AHF) save as many dogs as we can and work hard to find them loving forever homes. We can only do this with the help of the many volunteers involved, from foster parents to event coordinators, from financial supporters to dog handlers, etc… There is a place for everyone who wants to help.
If you have never adopted a dog, we hope you consider doing so. When you come home from a bad, hard, stressful or just tiring day, wouldn’t it be great to greeted by “someone” who really is excited to see you and has a unique way of helping you forgot the difficulties of the day? Dogs can do just that. Their unconditional love, their devotion to you as their pack/family members, and their acceptance of you no matter what, is irreplaceable.
AHF has anywhere from 110 – 145 adoptable dogs available each week. We are one of the few rescues that do NOT discriminate as to what dogs to save based on breed, age, gender, or health. If you check out our current dogs, we have some special needs dogs who are blind, deaf, three legged, etc…Check out Adoptable MAGOO. This little guy was born with no eyes, but AHF wasn’t going to turn him away just because of that. The foster family has taken care of Magoo for a very long time and they would love to see him find his forever home. Magoo is also a senior dog. Please click on his picture to read his full story.
We have senior dogs over 8 years old and puppies. Check out Nereus. This boy is such a lover of people and a couch potato. He is a black Pit Bull terrier mix who is a senior dog. Three strikes against him (black, senior and Pit Bull) yet AHF stepped up to save him. This guy needs to find a foster home so he can get out of the kennel. Better yet, let’s spread the word and help him find his forever home. Please click on Nereus’s picture to read his full story
We have Chihuahuas, Labs, Terriers and Greyhounds. Take a look at Bill, a greyhound mix that has a beautiful tan/fawn coloring and just under 4 years old. Click on Bill’s picture to read his full story.
We have large dogs and small dogs, sometimes extra-large dogs and tiny dogs. We have black dogs and white dogs. If you follow our website, you will see that AHF chooses to save dogs that need a home and a chance, no matter what their needs are. Our biggest limitation is the amount of foster homes we have. The more foster homes we have, the more dogs and cats we can save. Please take the time to check out all of the animals featured on this web page and then check out the rest of the available animals on their respective pages.
