Sometimes dogs come in to our care that we think may be difficult to rehome, often because they are in their twilight years, or they have an existing medical condition.
In these cases, Almost Home offers to cover medical expenses, in exchange for a loving home for them to spend their, hopefully many, remaining years.
We couldn't do this without the support of generous people like you!
Below you can meet our forever fosters and, if you wish to do so, sponsor them monthly.
Here at Almost Home Dog Rescue we have made a few changes! We have changed King Arthur’s castle for a more suitable long term residence for him plus we have modified Arthurs old castle to become an isolation and whelping unit.💚 All of this was done with funds from an extremely kind and supportive volunteer 😍
Arthur has been with us almost 2 years and he is a old lad who just wants to live out the rest of his days with people he knows and his own routine. A previous rehoming didn’t work out for him as he takes a long time to trust people and can be unpredictable when excited...which has resulted in him biting a couple of times.
Therefore we have decided that Arthur is going to be staying at Almost Home Dog Rescue for the rest of his days as a forever foster. ❤️ That’s why he needed a new castle!👑
We know Arthur has a huge following and a lot of people who love him dearly. He even has volunteers who only come up to walk him! 💕As Arthur is a forever foster, you can sponsor him monthly. These funds can go towards his vet and food bills, also maintaining his new castle to a high enough standard! 💚
We thank you for your on going support and understanding! We simply couldn’t do it without you!💛
We’ve had our little Brucey a few weeks now. He's settled very well and sleeps on our bed. He loves a little walk on the beach and loves his ball. We just adore him. Thank you, Almost Home Dog Rescue, for letting us give Brucey his forever home.
Ever since my potential Foster sister Lilly came to see me back in March this year my life has been nothing short of daily fun-filled adventures...! ‘Cos Lilly is blind we now help each other. She shows me the exciting new walks that are familiar to her and I guide her with unfamiliar territory. The village I live in is fab. So many daily country walks. I go everywhere with my new family. We’ve only just come back home from a week-long travel where I crossed the sea on a ship and travelled many miles by car (with many stops) to enjoy a ‘holiday’ in the South of France...! Cool or what...?!! The private grounds and swimming pool was cool as well...! I now have me own passport too...!! The only thing I don’t understand yet is when my two daddies look at me and say they are so lucky their tears fall... I thought tears were because you were sad.... After a huge sigh, my new sister assures me it’s because they are happy and she finishes off by sayin’: “Watch out Bro’, they’re off again.....”
Millie is a 10 + year old working cocker spaniel. She's timid when she first meets you and needs time to develop her confidence. She's starting to settle in her forever foster home with consistency and clear rules. She's a bright girl, starting to trust and love life. She loves nothing more that a walk, chasing a ball and a cuddle.💜
After losing my old JRT I really thought I wouldn’t have another dog for a long while. The heartbreak was awful. But 6 weeks later Mollie’s post came up on AHDR and Liz, a friend of mine, showed me her posting. My heart sank for her as her elderly owner had to go into a home leaving poor Mollie behind, after 14 amazing years together. I had to meet her. After AHDR set up our meet and greet and seeing her big brown eyes and happy tail I had to see if we could be perfect for each other, which AHDR thought we might be. She settled in brilliantly. There’s a lot to be said about older dogs, they really are so easy, she’s confident, wise and still eager for life. They are so easy if you have to work too as they like their naps. They still have their quirks and personality. She’s hilarious and fitted into our routine brilliantly. She loves her walks, food and snuggles on the couch and that’s all she wants out of life. She is so affectionate with everyone, except young lively dogs, they get on nerves lol. I look forward to coming home from work each day at lunchtime and evening so we can have our walks. I get to see her big excitable eyes and big nose pressed against my living room window as I’m walking up the drive. (I also think she likes me going to work so she can have a good undisturbed long nap too lol). She has given me 9 fantastic hilarious months. We are a team now and we both love each other dearly. Thank you Almost Home for helping to make the right decision for me and the right decision for her. We are perfect together and I hope we have, if not many, a few more years together. Xx
This little lad was in and out of homes due to his aggressive behaviour. Unfortunately, his behaviour originated from people treating him like a baby, dressing him up and taking him out him in Prams. Stan is a clever lad and learnt if he bit them when they were forcing him to do something, they would then let go and he could do what he wanted.😔 Stan has been with me nearly 18 months. His behaviours are difficult at times, however, he has improved massively! He has trust issues beyond anything I have seen before. However, each week he is slightly calmer and more relaxed! 💙Stan loves to play with cats and dogs. He adores people playing with him, but he doesn’t like being fussed. It takes a long time for Stan to trust you, however, he is 90% there with me now! It’s the little things which mean the most when you take on a dog no one wanted! 🐶 This lad has everyone in stitches and he is so gentle when he needs to be, also he is can stand his ground. We both learn each day and I know I will never have a dull day as long as Stan is around! I wouldn’t change him for the world. 💚
I got my forever foster dog, Tye, in March 2018. I kept seeing his picture on the Almost Home Dog Rescue Facebook page and my heart went out to this little guy. I have already got 2 rescue dogs, a 13 year old golden retriever and a 7 year old greyhound ,so he has a ready made family. I guess I felt a kin with him as his world had been turned upside down, just as mine had too. My beloved partner had died back in December and had left a huge hole in my heart. So, I guess me and Tye rescued each other. Love this little guy xxx
