Almost home shelter hired a employee that puts other owner name on documents and then when she is done with the dog or enter a new phase in her life she drops dogs of at peoples porches tied around a pole.. This employee also stated that when a Black women came in to retrieve her dog she was told the dog was not there... Another employee out of respect for the women called her after hours to tell her the dog was at the shelter and then was fired immediatetly.... I would say this shelter is discriminating against colored people... and this will be reported to the right officials!! Marla the Co-founder seemed to not care that her employee tied the dog to a pole and then left!!! I would advise no one to take their dog the only seem to sell to the highest bidder and sometimes you still don't get the dog it goes to family of employee working there!!

Almost home does not trap and release. Instead they find homes for all of their cats. When feral cats present, if not adopted, they go to sanctuaries.

Volunteering is a huge JOY. One must have a realistic and reasonable attitude, though. This shelter does everything they can out of love for the animals and saving lives. They have hearts of gold. Not everything can always run perfect and smoothly. Rescue is never a perfect science...but the fact that people are doing it out of pure hearts and love for animals, is the greatest foundation for any organization. Almost Home has this! If one goes there to critique and judge, they must realize they are volunteering there to be part of the solution. Just as the description states under this question/field: "There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources."...This is beyond true. Almost Home has amazingly positive volunteers who believe whole-heartedly in the Never Kill Mission.

Medical issues that become known during the time of an animal's stay at Almost Home are addressed. NEVER is a needed treatment denied to a sick/injured animal for cost reasons. They believe EVERY life is worth saving.

Many of their animals are in foster care. Animals who need to recuperate from big medical issues also do so in foster homes.

Almost Home pulls animals (cats and dogs) whose "time is up" at kill shelters.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.
