Almost Home Dog Rescue NC

Almost Home Dog Rescue NC is a small foster-based rescue group in Western Carolina. After volunteering for years in a local county animal shelter, we could not turn away from the dogs that needed our help the most. We have created a home environment with comfy cabins for the pooches in our fun red barn and provide loads of fun, enrichment and training for the pups in our care. Our goal is to enrich the lives of both the dogs and their adopters alike! Want to learn more or interested in volunteering? Contact us! Interested in supporting our mission? We are incredibly grateful for donations of any amount via:
