Butter is desperately in need of a foster or foster-to-adopt home — can you help? Please see below for more information!
Two-year-old Butter would have died in the small southern shelter where he was dumped, but thanks to a heroic group effort, his life was saved. Sadly, his original rescuer is now too ill to take care of him properly, but she loves him very much, and we've promised her we'll find this sweet boy a real, "forever" home.
Butter has tested positive for heartworm, and will be treated before he heads north, so he won't be traveling this way until the end of October. His current foster "mom" says he gets along great with other dogs and is very friendly with people. This little cutie tips the scales at just 27 lbs., so he won't take up much room in his new home ... maybe your home?
Want to learn more? Please e-mail us at AlmostHome4Dogs@yahoo.com or stop by an upcoming Meet & Greet ... and let us know if you can help little Butter! (Local adoptions preferred — Philadelphia and tri-state area [South Jersey and northern Delaware] only.)
PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING US! We are NOT a shelter: All of our dogs live in private homes with foster families. Come and meet the Almost Home dogs and their fosters at our Meet & Greet events, where you can learn more about our wonderful dogs from the people who live with them, find out which dogs are on their way and when they’ll arrive, and fill out an application to adopt or foster.
We cannot adopt to homes where electric-shock fencing systems or training collars are used. For more information on the dangers of electric-shock collars, please visit banshockcollars.ca/studies.php and http://www.hollysden.com/say_no_to_shock.htm (scroll down and click on the "Invisible Fencing Systems" link).
We do not have an online adoption application; to request an application, e-mail us at AlmostHome4Dogs@yahoo.com. To speed e-mail processing time, be sure to note the name of the dog you are inquiring about in the Subject line. For Meet & Greet times and locations, visit our home page, where you also will find information on our adoption process and fees.
FOSTER FAMILIES ARE LIFESAVERS!! Can you open your heart and home for a few weeks to homeless shelter dog? Remember, by fostering a dog, you save TWO lives — that of your foster dog, and that of the dog who takes his place in the shelter! Come to a Meet & Greet and find out if fostering is for you — there's no reward quite like the feeling that you've saved a life ... or two!
