Welcome to Almost Home Rescue!



Jason Weed is planning to hike the Appalachian Trail from Georgia back to Maine, in memory of his beloved dog, Shelby. It was originally his intent to make this trek with her, but she passed away last year. So in her honor, he’ll make the trek to raise funds for Almost Home Rescue of New England. And his goal? $10,000! It’s ambitious and thoughtful and it means the world to us that he wants to help other dogs just like his pup, Shelby. She was a rescue dog as well and he just wants to be able to allow other dogs to have as amazing a life as she did.




 Almost Home Rescue (AHR) is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit all-breed rescue organization dedicated to saving lives and finding forever homes for stray, abandoned and surrendered dogs in danger of euthanasia. We are strictly a volunteer run organization and have no paid staff or board members. We rely on a network of volunteer foster homes and do not have a physical shelter. Almost Home Rescue holds permits to import dogs to the States of Maine and New Hampshire. […read more]
