Billy is an 18-month-old pup in search of a new place to hang his leash — got room at your house? :-) This 45-lb. pup has absolutely charmed his foster mom; here's what she told us about him: 'Billy is as smart as he is friendly — he's housetrained and sleeps quietly in his crate overnight. He'd love to have a canine 'sibling' to romp around with, and some human 'siblings' would be even better. He would do great with older kids. The family who adopts this sweet guy will definitely be a lucky one!' He is higher energy so an active family would e best.
Billy recently hitched a ride north to join the Almost Home family, but it turned out that the older (and much smaller) dogs in his foster home weren't too happy about having a bouncy teenager around ... so we'd like to find him a new foster home — or better yet, a real home! He also may be available on a 'foster-to-adopt' basis, so if Billy sounds like the right boy for you, please stop by an upcoming Meet & Greet or e-mail us for more information! (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 http://www.hollysden.com/say_no_to_shock.htm ; scroll down and click on the 'Invisible Fencing Systems' link.
We do not have an online adoption application; to request an application, e-mail us at AlmostHome4Dogs@yahoo.com . 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!
