The Almost Home Project is part of The Almost Home Coalition which is made up of different animal rescue organizations in Lewis County who are working together to make the lives of animals in Lewis County better. By working together we can expand and strengthen the support and services we can offer the residents of Lewis County. While we were formerly known in the community as “Friends of Lewis County Animal Shelter” or “FOLCAS”, we have moved away from using those names and instead use “The Almost Home Coalition” to reflect the partnerships with other organizations working toward the same goal of improving animal welfare in Lewis County. Together we can feed the animals which will allow senior pet owners to keep their pets during a tough time, keeping them out the animal shelter, through our Ani-meals program (AHP). We can get them fixed, decreasing the animal population and euthanasia (The Cat's Meow of Lewis County spay/neuter program & our fix-a-pit and fix-a-cat programs). And we can find them homes through adoptions at events & The Almost Home Project adoption program currently located at Kaija's Garden & Pet in Chehalis & Cat's Meow Barn cat program. We hope to soon have a no kill pet adoption center and low-cost spay/neuter clinic in Chehalis where we will be able to further practice what we preach. We will be able to target animal populations that would otherwise never be taken to a vet to be spayed or neutered. One adoption center is not going to end euthanasia. It might delay it. It might even increase the number of adoptions. But ultimately, people need to have their pets spayed & neutered so the number of unwanted pets decreases. Saving one animal may not make a huge difference in the world but it makes a huge world of difference to that one animal.
Currently, animals who are part of The Almost Home Project are being adopted at Kaija's Garden and Pet located at 623 NW State Avenue in Chehalis. The phone number is 360-508-0151.
