About Us


Got some spare change?

One of our volunteers just updated all of our donation banks around town! Look for our puppy banks around town, and top them up when you find yourself with some extra pocket change. We thank our local retailers:
  • Urban Junk Etc.
  • Loopy’s Dollar Store
  • Johnson Jeweler Inc.
  • Lake Vet Clinic
  • Classic Corner
  • Mochavino
  • Stemper Auto Body
  • Sunshine Foods
  • Campbell Supply Co.
  • Subway/ TCBY Treats
  • Ace Hardware
  • Dairy Queen
  • Madison Discount Liquor
  • Pawn Shop/Surplus Store

Donate your cans!

Drop your aluminum cans off in the can kennel at Lake Veterinary Clinic
231 S Highland Ave in Madison

We use these proceeds to help local residents spay and neuter their animals.

How you can help

We are in desperate need for short (1-2 weeks) and long-term foster families for dogs and cats. Almost Home will pay for the foster pet's expenses, if you can provide the love and attention. If you are able to help, please contact us by filling out our Foster Application.

As a small not-for-profit organization, Almost Home accepts donations of all kinds:
  • crates 
  • beds
  • blankets
  • time
  • money 
The animals that you help shall be forever grateful.

**If you want to help, but aren't sure how, please send us an email! We're always looking for new ideas and can always use help with fundraising initiatives. So, send us an email! almosthomesd[at]yahoo[dot]com

Thank you

Almost Home has been a proud recipient of generous assistance from the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation.

We are constantly grateful to our volunteers, the vets and staff at Lake Vet Clinic, and the help and support of Brookings Regional Humane Society and Hearts United for Animals.

Adopting A Friend

Although the focus of our work is on education and resources, we would be lost without our rescue work. Our foster dogs remind us everyday why we do this. A small group of dedicated volunteers stay busy loving and caring for our foster dogs and cats. Visit our Petfinder page to see the pets that are currently available for adoption.
