About Almost Home Shelter Pet Rescue

Almost Home Inc. is a foster care program that is made up of fosters from Eastern Kentucky. It is an all-volunteer group of caring individuals dedicated to saving companion animals whose lives are in jeopardy. Animals are rescued from a variety of circumstances including abandonment, homeless populations and kill shelters. Volunteers bring these animals into their home for temporary foster care where they receive health care, training and socialization. Almost Home Shelter Pet Rescue is committed to relocate animals to forever homes or no-kill shelters. Through our adoption/evaluation process we do everything possible to place them with families that will love them and understand a pet is a lifetime commitment. We have a mandatory spay/neuter policy and we also provide pet care and training tip for the new families. We also require home visits pre and post of the adoptions.
