A Home for the Holidays!

4 Days and 3 Nights. That is what some of our rescued animals are hoping for…a home over the holidays, from December 23 until December 26.

This year, our hope is to find a home for all our animals, even for a few days over the holidays. It would truly be a blessing to have every AHF animal in a home with a family, a couple or a single person throughout December. If you have never had a dog or cat curl up and lay at your feet or next to you on you couch, you don’t know what you are missing. An animal's unconditional love provides so many physical and emotional health benefits. It is the cheapest health care plan around!

Almost Home Foundation is an animal rescue that relies on temporary foster homes for our animals on their journey for a forever home. We always seem to have just a few more animals than we have space for in our temporary foster homes. In those cases, we use our small kennel to house the animals until we can find a temporary home for them. During any given week, we could have 8 to 20 animals that need a temporary home. We pay for all food and can loan you supplies needed. So it's FREE for you! Just open your heart and home.

Could you be part of this blessing for our animals? Could you provide a temporary home for a cat or dog this holiday season? Please take the time and look through all the dogs that are in need of a temporary home right now by clicking here. Some of these dogs need to be in a home with no other animals for one reason or another. Others do not. Check them out, read their stories, and send an email to dogs@almosthomefoundation.org expressing your interest in housing one of the dogs for the holiday.

If you are able to help a cat or two out, please send an email to cats@almosthomefoundation.org and express your interest in providing a temporary home for a cat. We will be happy to provide you with details on all of the available felines that need a home.

AHF’s ultimate mission is to help as many adoptable, homeless cats and dogs as possible find their forever homes. Besides finding temporary homes for the animals that are still waiting, we are searching for LOVING, FOREVER HOMES for our animals every day. This holiday season, maybe the greatest gift you can give is to save a cat or dog’s life and take it HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS, fall in love and provide a loving home FOREVER. The animal will be truly grateful and so will we.

Stop by one of our adoption shows at our PetSmart locations and meet some of our homeless animals. We know they will warm your heart and maybe show you the love they have to offer.

We at Almost Home Foundation wish you a warm and wonderful holiday. Thank you for all your continued support. We have rescued 664 dogs and 189 cats for a total of 853 animals saved off death row so far this year - with 7 more weeks to go! We could not have done this all without our outstanding volunteers, sponsors, donors and adopters!

To help us continue our critical mission, please consider Almost Home Foundation for your 2014 donations. We are a 501c3 registered charity so your donations are tax deductible! Click here to see Ways to Give.

Looking forward in 2015, we have many exciting programs and events planned. Take a look at some of programs - especially our newly, implemented A Little Extra program designed to help some of our dogs improve their chances on getting a forever home.

The year 2015 marks our 10th year! We are very proud of our accomplishment and the impact we've made on the lives of more than 10,000 cats & dogs. Together with your help we can save more of these needy, homeless pets!
