Who We Are

Almost Home Animal Rescue is a no-kill, all volunteer, 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit rescue that operates out of foster homes. We offer adoption opportunities for cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies of all ages. We were founded in January 2006 by a family who wanted to help animals in need. AHAR takes in animals from different sources including those relinquished by owners/guardians and good samaritans. However, our primary source for animals are those at risk of being euthanized in animal control agencies, shelters both local and from other states, and veterinary offices. We provide each animal entering our adoption program a full veterinary exam, vaccines, neutering/spaying, testing for disease and parasites, and micro chipping. In many cases, more intensive health care is provided based on the animals' individual needs, circumstances, or illnesses. We provide this quality of care because many of the animals we take in have either never had veterinary care or come to us in poor condition. Our adoption fees cover only a portion of our veterinary bills so we are always in serious need of donations from the public, our adopters, and volunteers. Without these donations, we do not have a way to recover veterinary costs since we are not county, state, or federally supported.

Adopting a friend

If you would like more information on any of our animals please contact us by calling 708-927-1065 or by sending an e-mail to You will then fill out an application. This tells us a little about your family and the environment you would provide for your new pet. After your application is received one of our volunteers will visit your home to discuss the adoption process and your preferences and expectations for your next family member. Upon approval you will be able to take your new family member home.

Come Visit Us!

We do not have a physical shelter because all of our animals are in foster homes. Therefore to come and visit an animal you would have to contact the foster family and set something up. WE ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF FOSTER FAMILIES! If you would like to foster please e-mail Jamie at
