Facts about Starlight

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair/Domestic Shorthair Mix
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 35675444
  • Hair: Unknown
Starlight was born around June 14, 2016. She was found as a stray by a volunteer
who took her to the vet to be checked. The vet found that she was full of fleas
and, therefore, had developed a severe reaction to the flea bites in the form of
dermatitis. After being treated for this condition, her dermatitis has now gone and
she has been approved for adoption.
Starlight is very attractive with grey and black markings that appear to be a mix of
tabby and Bengal. She is very friendly, likes attention and loves to jump on your
lap and climb up you until her head is under your chin so she can nuzzle you
while purring loudly. She is rather shy of other cats at first so is inclined to stay
by herself so she can observe what's going on until she feels more comfortable
around them. She would probably adapt to any household, with or without other
animals, if given enough time. For more information about Starlight, please email:

About Almost Home Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

We are in need of Foster Homes for our homeless animals!!! Can you help?

What is a Foster Home?
A foster home takes in one of our homeless animals rather than boarding them at the kennel and cares for it until we find a permanent loving home. Almost Home Foundation pays for the all animal's food and medical expenses. The foster home learns the animal's temperament and behaviors. The foster home learns if they get along with other animals. The foster home provides insights on the animals that helps Almost Home Foundation look for the right home for the animal.

Please help!! Just fill out this form and we will contact you or call 630-582-3738 and leave a message letting us know that you are interested in fostering!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

We are an all-volunteer, registered, not-for-profit 501c3 animal rescue group. Our mission is to save adoptable dogs and cats from being destroyed by finding permanent, loving homes. For details, visit us online at www.almosthomefoundation.org.

Almost Home Foundation is always looking for volunteers to handle dogs at adoption shows, set up adoption shows, write for the newsletter, photograph events, or foster animals. For a list of opportunities, visit online at www.volunteermatch.org
or www.almosthomefoundation.org.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
We are a Rescue not a Shelter. This simply means we do not own a building where we house animals. We look for loving foster homes that will give temporary care and love on the animal’s journey to a permanent, loving home. When a foster home is not available, we will board the animal at a boarding kennel.

Our 5-year goal is to have a shelter. This is an aggressive goal that will take many donations and memberships. We will strive for this goal with a great team of volunteers and help from people like you! Please become a member, become a sponsor or make a donation.

Our animals are found strayed and brought in from the police. After being held for 7 days, we evaluate the temperament of the animal and determine if the animal is suitable to be a pet. On rare occasion, we will also rescue animals that are in desperate situations where the rescue makes the difference between life and death. We do not accept Owner Give-ups.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our adoption shows are every Saturday from 11-3 at PetsMart stores in Schaumburg (1440 E Golf Rd), Streamwood (140 N Barrington Rd), and Bloomingdale (162 S Gary Avenue). We make every effort to have each one of our available animals at a show each weekend. The schedule can be found on our web site under Adoption Shows and is updated the Friday evening prior to the Saturday show.
