A very dedicated group of experienced volunteers and although small, have managed to effect the lives of hundreds of animals  on Long Island and across the country. The animals available for adoption are kept in foster homes and live with our foster families so we get to know the animals very well. The cats are put up for adoption at the Petsmart in Lake Grove adoption area so you can visit them there! We hold weekly adoption events at pet stores across Long Island where our dogs can be seen for adoption.

Despite our foster homes being filled most of the time, we don't just turn families away. We offer advice and assistance in anyway we can. Our goal is not to just help animals, but to help people too!

Almost Home has approximately 40 volunteers that include foster homes, Training Wheel volunteers, dog walkers, cat caretakers, fundraising organizers, office workers, spay/neuter transporters to name just a few jobs. We are always in need of help with volunteers so visit our Volunteer Page!

Almost Home is a stricly donation run organization. We do not receive any government funding. We do, graciously, receive some grants from some wonderful organizations but our bulk of funding comes from private donations. Without your help, we could not continue our most important work.

Meet our new addition to Almost Home - Apollo!  This newborn was not looking good when we got a call about his urgent situation. Apollo could not regulate his body temperature and was unable to breath on his own. It was a frightening situation which required around the clock intensive care. Thankfully Apollo has been steadily improving and is now recovering in foster care. It's wonderful seeing him grow stronger each day!


If you can help dogs like Apollo receive access to life saving medical care, please consider donating to our medical fund - any amount will help Apollo.  Please click the "Donate" button below.  Thank You.

Your donation instantly gets used for our animals in need. Any amount is greatly appreciated. It takes all of us a little at a time to make a difference.  Thank You!!

We at Almost Home would like to Thank Pet Peeves for all your help for our four legged friends !
