"No baggage to bring to the relationship!"
"Now, how refreshing is my tagline? :-) In all honesty, though, it's true. Having spent some time behind bars (I literally was in a local human person for many weeks before being transferred to the shelter), I am tried and true in how I am with people and other dogs. Simply put, I'm AWESOME!"
"I'm a friendly, happy lady who doesn't ask for much. I love being close to my person and getting all snuggly with them. Alert and ready to listen to my humans, I'm excellent on the leash — not too strong, but not too limp either. An expert hugger and kisser, I smile and wag my tail a lot. I have a great disposition that is a perfectly suited for kids ... well, really, for folks of all ages as well as other dogs. As for cats ... well, most of the time I ignore them if they're not moving, but I have to confess that when they take off running, it's just too tempting not to chase them! So maybe a kitty-free home would be the best bet for me!"
"It's been a tough year from me, but I'm hoping my luck changes soon . This 2-year-old Miss Manners is ready to pack her bags and find a new job in the new year — and I'm perfectly suited for the job of 'beloved companion!' Weighing in at 58 lbs., I'm a bit on the bigger side, but that just means there's more of me to love!"
AnnaBelle will be making the long trip north in search of a new family sometime in beginning to mid-May, so please check back here to see when she'll be arriving ... and then stop by an upcoming Meet & Greet to find out if AnnaBelle is the right girl 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 banshockcollars.ca/studies.php and 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!
