Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

After volunteering at a number of animal shelters and rescue groups I became disenchanted and sad about the philosophies of so many such organizations. Even the so-called “no kill “shelters were euthanizing adoptable animals. I was devastated, to say the least.

Being a person who is so very passionate about animals, I decided to make a difference. In 2001 I started Almost Home Animal Rescue League. It consisted of myself and my daughter, Lauren. I wanted to help all animals, whether they were young or old, sick or healthy, maimed or beautiful. I wanted to create a place for them not only to FEEL SAFE  but to BE SAFE.

It was really difficult in the beginning. Many people thought I was unrealistic. I have proven them wrong. With my compassion for these helpless creatures who ask for so little and give so much in return, I am able to continue my work with a motivation that, well… kind of drives people a little crazy! I have never been so tenacious and diligent in my whole life. Most of the animals that we rescue are so frightened, confused and sick. It breaks my heart to see them in this condition. There is nothing more rewarding than to help them recover from these traumas. Hugging them, bathing them, loving them and giving them a sense of security is just a start. A big bowl of nutritious food to help make them strong and healthy, and then trips to the veterinarian. Then, ultimately finding them their loving, responsible  “forever home”. Now, what can be more rewarding than that?

It’s hard to believe we live in a world where innocent animals are put sleep simply because  society says there is no room for them. I feel there is a way to SAVE EVERY ANIMAL. And this is my mission. I encourage every caring person to do your part to help the animals. If you work at a shelter and you see that bad things are going on, speak out. Or start your own organization to advocate for them. Speak for the animals. Do what you can.

One day I hope to walk into an animal shelter and all I will see are a few animals there, waiting for their owners to arrive because they were licensed and properly tagged.One day when I see a pregnant dog or cat I won’t cry, feel sad or be frightened. One day I hope there will be no use for organizations like mine.

But, for now, there’s Almost Home.
