Welcome to Almost Home Rescue!


PLEASE SAVE THE DATE  for our 11th Anniversary REUNION

Sunday, September 18, 2016 at Rotary Park, Biddeford, Maine – 12:00 to 3:00 pm* (please note new time this year)


We are really looking forward to celebrating our first 11 wonderful years with all our friends, adopters, fosters, volunteers and DOGS – of course! We will be having a pet food drive for the Amy Buxton pet Pantry – Donations Needed – Bring to the Reunion!

Some important information about the event is below.

 Burgers, hot dogs, chips and salads will be provided, as well as water and soft drinks and CAKE! (This is a public park so no alcohol please.)

All dogs will need to remain on leash, unless they are in the fenced dog park, which is within walking distance within Rotary Park. Of course, we want to see as many dogs as possible at the event, but please consider whether your dog will be comfortable in a situation with lots of people, commotion and other dogs.

  The park is along the Saco river and has a very nice sandy beach for swimming. There is a playground which includes a children’s slide and swings at the picnic area and a skateboard park 4/10 of a mile from the picnic area within the park.  We look forward to seeing you there!
