Who's that handsome shy kitty in the corner? That's Charlie!

There's no beating around the bush when describing Charlie. He is a very, very shy cat in need of a quiet and patient forever home. Charlie is very jumpy and just isn't sure what to make of people. Can they be trusted? He still needs some convincing, but with the right family, he is sure to blossom.

Charlie is quiet, well-behaved, gentle, and very smart. He's one of the most observant and alert cats out there. Although he is shy and hides a lot at first, Charlie really likes to explore. He's an expert at "being in the middle of things" while avoiding being noticed at the same time! He also loves sleeping in cat beds.

The wonderful thing about Charlie is that he absolutely adores other cats. He has a playful side and has lots of feline friends in his foster home. His best friends in his foster home are named Carolina and Tippy. Charlie can often be found curled up next to or even on top of his cuddly friends! If you're looking for a companion for your current cat, Charlie would probably be a great choice.

Charlie is also a very gorgeous cat. His fluffy orange-and-white fur is marked with a magnificent mane, a tall puffy tail, and long, curly tufts of fur in his ears and between his toes. He also has the most adorable white toes on his orange paws!

Charlie was born in September 2008 and is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and litterbox trained. He would do best in a home without kids or dogs, and will need a few feline friends. If you're interested in adopting Charlie, you can contact his foster family at

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

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

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.
