Laura is in need of a foster home or adopter — can you help? She is also available through our "foster-to-adopt" program; please see below for more information!
Laura is a sweet but timid 3-year-old girl who weighs just 14 lbs. Poor Laura was dumped at an overcrowded shelter in North Carolina, but she recently made her way north to join the Almost Home family ... and we're very happy to have her!
Her temporary foster mom told us that Laura is initially rather shy, but warmed up quickly in her foster home. We think she'd be happiest as an "only" pet; she tends to chase cats, and wants to have her "person" all to herself. Her ideal home would be a quiet one with an older woman or women, as some men and children make her anxious. She is a sweetie who loves to sit in your lap once she is comfortable ... and all she needs is a chance to make that happen! Could you be Laura's "special someone?" :-)
Want to learn more? Please stop by an upcoming Meet & Greet to find out if Laura is the right little lady 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!
