About Almost Home Rescue
Almost Home Rescue is an all-breed canine rescue group.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to saving lives and finding forever homes for stray, abandoned and surrendered dogs, most of which are in high kill shelters. Our policy is to rescue for life and if any of our rescued dogs cannot stay with their adoptive family, they must be returned to Almost Home Rescue and not to a shelter.
Most of AHR’s dogs have come from Arkansas kill shelters. However, we also take dogs from local shelters, veterinarians, and other situations that require rescue.
All of our imported dogs arrive with a current Health Certificate, meet Maine and New Hampshire state import and vaccination requirements, are wormed, microchipped, and transported on an U.S.D.A. approved transport.
We are an all volunteer run organization. All the dogs listed are either still waiting in Arkansas Shelters, or in New England Foster Homes waiting to be adopted.
We do not have a physical shelter as we are strictly a dog rescue organization. All of our dogs arrive with a current Health Certificate, are up to date with vaccinations and are transported on an U.S.D.A. approved transport.
Communication: We prefer e-mail. It is more accessible and you will get a quicker reply; it simplifies the application process as we do most of our application processing and communications via the internet. It also makes it easier for us to share information with volunteers.
Appointments: We are a shelter-less rescue. We do not have hours and we work full time jobs. If you would like to make an appointment to see a dog in foster care, please submit an application and your request, our fosters would be happy to accommodate you.
LOOKING TO SURRENDER YOUR DOG? Private citizens looking to surrender their dog, should first request assistance from their local shelter. Please do not advertise FREE to good home in the paper or Craig’s list, many of these dogs do not end up in good homes, but meet sad ends. If you are unable to find a safe place for your dog, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org To be considered; please provide your contact information, pictures of your dog, age, health and vaccination history, behavioral history -including all personality quirks. No dog is perfect, it is important we know all personality information for the dog to be successful in another home environment.
