Almost Home Dog Rescue

We are a small group of volunteers whose goal is to save the lives of homeless dogs suffering in high-kill shelters. In doing so, we hope to provide an alternative to the purchase of puppy-mill and pet-store dogs, thereby reducing the demand for and ultimately the supply of such dogs. We strive to match each dog with the right family after the dog has been observed in a foster home.

Meet Sweet Pea

AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION! Sweet Pea recently arrived to Almost Home from the shelter and is acclimating to home life extremely well. Although found as a stray and no one came looking for her, we think she must have been someone’s beloved pet at some point. She’s calm and well behaved in the house and hasn’t had any accidents so far. She seems so grateful to be indoors and loved. Sweet Pea is about 2-3 years old and between 50-60 lb and looks like she has some lab and shepherd in the mix.   Sweet Pea was given this name for a reason. She is just sooo sweet. She’s good with everyone, including the kids and dogs in her foster home. She rides nicely in the car and takes treats gently, too. What a catch! Sweet Pea is being fostered in DE. Email [email protected] to apply for Sweet Pea today! (Local adoptions preferred — Philadelphia and tri-state area [South Jersey and northern Delaware] only.) PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING US! We are NOT a shelter: All of our dogs live in private homes with foster families. Come and meet the Almost Home dogs and their fosters at our Meet & Greet events, where you can learn more about our wonderful dogs from the people who live with them, find out which dogs are on their way and when they’ll arrive, and fill out an application to adopt or foster. We cannot adopt to homes where electric-shock fencing systems or training collars are used. For more information on the dangers of electric-shock collars, please visit banshockcollars.ca/studies.php . We do not have an online adoption application; to request an application, e-mail us at [email protected]. To speed e-mail processing time, be sure to note the name of the dog you are inquiring about in the Subject line. For Meet & Greet times and locations, visit our home page, where you also will find information on our adoption process and fees. FOSTER FAMILIES ARE LIFESAVERS!! Can you open your heart and home for a few weeks to homeless shelter dog? Remember, by fostering a dog, you save TWO lives — that of your foster dog, and that of the dog who takes his place in the shelter! Come to a Meet & Greet and find out if fostering is for you — there's no reward quite like the feeling that you've saved a life ... or two!

Adoption Process
We require vet and reference checks and a home visit for all adoptions. Our adoption fee is $275 with an extra $50 deposit for unaltered puppies.

Look for other dogs for adoption!
