Ginger is a sweet 6-year-old girl who's looking for a new place to hang her leash! She's been with her family since she was 8 weeks old, but lately they've been through some very difficult times, and they can no longer keep her with them :-( Here's what they told us about Ginger:
"Ginger is energetic and playful, but settles down nicely and loves to snuggle. She gets along well with other dogs and kids, but kitties are too much fun to chase, so a cat-free home is preferred for Ginger. She is housetrained and crate-trained and has had some basic obedience training, although she does need some work on her leash manners. Ginger would love a fenced yard with room to run and play with her new family."
Want to learn more? Please stop by an upcoming Meet & Greet to find out if Ginger is the right girl for you! (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!
