Thumper is in need of a new place to hang her leash — can you help? Unfortunately, she and the other female dog in her current home are not fans of one another, and their family feels that they'd both be happier living in separate homes. here's what her family told us about her:
"Thumper is an intelligent and loving black Lab-Whippet mix. We think she's about 6 years old, and she weighs approximately 38 lbs. Her previous owner was disabled, and Thumper was trained to help by assisting in doing some tasks. Thumper LOVES being a helper — she will pick up anything off of the floor (well, except metal items!) to give to you, and will go get some items if you ask her to (e.g., paper printing on printer, clothes, shoes). She was even in the process of being trained to assist with laundry! Because her owner was deaf, Thumper was very alert to sounds and always told her owner when someone was at the door. 
"Even though Thumper has webbed feet, she doesn't like to get her feet wet. She also doesn't like the heat, and  prefers to be inside with her owner (although she will go outside to do her business, of course!). She loves to play ball and tug-of-war, but is happiest just hanging out with her 'person' — 24/7, if possible! Because Thumper can be easily startled by sudden movements, she would do best in an environment without small children or other animals."

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.
