My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

~Shadow is an active, yet cuddly pup. She's about 6 years old and is 44 lbs of love! Shadow is well behaved in the house, house broken and a joy to have around.  She likes to hang out with whoever is in the house.  She will usually lay down near by, either curled in a ball or stretched out comfortably.  She loves to be pet. Shadow loves her fetch games in the backyard. Shadow does not love the crate, but will sleep on a doggie bed next to my bed quietly.

Currently she knows sit and paw.  If called in the house, she will come right away. Shadow is working on other commands and her leash training.  She will need a forever family who are committed to her training for walks.

Shadow isn't great with other animals and does have a high prey drive, so she needs to be an only pet. She would love a fenced yard to play in. Shadow has been around children, but older pre-teens and teenagers would be best.  Shadow is also available through our foster to adopt program.

Please email us at to find out if Shadow is the right one 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 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!

More about this rescue

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.
