Cat & Dog of the Month
Each month Almost Home features an exceptional cat and dog of the month. These animals are selected because they are particularly deserving of adoption...either because of their unique personalities, popularity among the staff, particular need for a permanent home, or the length of time at our shelter. This month's picks are shown below. For more pictures and information on these animals, select the applicable link below.

NOTE: My cats and dogs now all wear Seresto Flea & Tick Collars recommended by my veterinarian. In addition to killing fleas & ticks, they also repel them and last for 8 months! They are not cheap, but the fact that they last 8 months makes them cheaper in the long run than those monthly applications.
Tupelo #16788 before pictures (4/23/14) and just 6 weeks later!!!
Did you know the Almost Home Pet Adoption Center, a no-kill shelter, is funded entirely by donations & fundraisers? We receive NO funding from Nelson County! And, thanks to the help of dedicated staff, volunteers and fosters, we are able to save many animals and help prevent their needless suffering. Unfortunately, we are constantly in need of help!!! Some ways you can help...
The "Help To Heal" fund was developed to deal with the growing number of animals that are arriving at our facility in need of medical care above and beyond our normal budget capacity. Monies donated to the “Help To Heal” fund will be used to pay for these medical costs. To donate, please select our Help to Heal Fund link.
