Almost Home is a 501c3, not for profit organization that strives to make a more humane community. Established in 2007, Almost Home provides rescue, re-homing and community outreach to those in need - two and four legged alike.
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 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 strictly 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.
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!!
