Laura is a sweet  3-year-old girl who weighs just 14 lbs. Poor Laura was dumped at an overcrowded shelter in North Carolina, but she recently made her way north to join the Almost Home family ... and we're very happy to have her!

Itty bitty Laura is a 3 year old pug/chihuahua mix looking for a special adopter who will give her a few extra days (and treats!) to warm up and get comfy in her new surroundings. She is cratetrained and housetrained but has been known to stash the occasional slipper in her crate for safe keeping. Laura is happy to meet other dogs with proper intros, but cats are just too exciting for this pint sized pup. She loves walking and being outdoors and comes more out of her shell each day. Once she opens up, you'll find she's a super spunky and affectionate girl who loves to snuggle up to you on the couch and get lots of belly scratching at the end of the day. If you think you could be Laura's special adopter, please e-mail  and let us know!
Want to learn more? Please stop by an upcoming Meet & Greet to find out if Laura is the right little lady for you! (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 and (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 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!

About Almost Home Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

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.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have weekly meet and greets and potential adopters can set up appointments with foster families.

Our 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.
