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 staff, particular need for a permanent home, or length of time at our shelter.  This month’s picks are shown below.  For more pictures and information, select the applicable link below. 

Because featured animals are often adopted quickly, we recommend that you call the shelter to verify the animal is still available for adoption.

COM DOM AUG 2

suffered an accident and was rushed to the vet struggling to breathe. He had contusions to his lungs and needed oxygen therapy to bring his oxygen level back up. He has been recovering in foster care as his lungs heal and is making good progress.

Gabby
is a sweet little 18 pound beagle that was found with her foot in a Steel Leg Hold Trap.  Sadly she had to have a portion of her leg amputated and will need a prosthetic.  These traps are banned in 85 countries including the European Union but are still being used in the U.S. The following states have restrictions on their use:  Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey Rhode Island and Washington. Only New Jersey has banned the manufacture, sale, possession import transport and use of these.  Virginia unfortunately allows the use of these inhumane traps.  View VA Regulations!
