My story

My name is Marley! I am a very chill and independent girl. That means I do not run and hide, but just that I'd rather "oversee" things. I love playing fetch. My foster mom will throw my toy and I'll run and get it at bring it back so she can throw it again and again. I live with other cats and dogs and I can tolerate them. I would prefer to be someone's one and only. I would love a forever family with a mom and dad and have a quiet household. I am not needy cat, and more independent, but someone who will play fetch with me occasionally would be amazing!

Our adoption shows are every Saturday from 11-3 at PetsMart stores in Schaumburg (1440 E Golf Rd), Streamwood (61 Irving Pk. 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 Adopt and is updated the Friday evening prior to the Saturday show.

More about this rescue

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.
