A 501c3, all-volunteer dog rescue dedicated to helping the animal community of Rhode Island
Who we are
Almost Home Rescue (AHR) is a non profit dog rescue serving Rhode Island. All donations are tax deductible. AHR is comprised of a small, yet dedicated group of volunteers who devote their free time to rescuing, rehabilitating-if necessary- and rehoming dogs in need.
Our dogs come from various local shelters and in some cases are owner surrendered due to a variety of circumstances like divorce, moving or death.
We do not maintain a shelter so all of our dogs live in foster care or boarding until they can be placed in the right home. We can only take in as many dogs as we have an open home for, and therefore we welcome new foster applicants so we can help place more dogs who are in jeopardy of losing their lives.
We do not discriminate against dogs because of age or breed. When deciding what dogs we will accept into our program, we judge by dogs' temperaments, not by how they look. We do not take or rehome dogs displaying human aggression.
What we do
We take dogs out of the shelter who need that little extra...time to decompress, time to adjust, time to trust again.
More often than not, we have found dogs that don't present well in their kennels, make a complete turnaround in a home environment. While in foster care, we can give you a better idea of a dog's likes and dislikes while we work on basic training and address any undesirable behaviors. They are Almost Home!
AHR gives back to Rhode Island! In addition to financing spay and neuter surgeries for privately owned dogs (dogs who are considered high risk or were adopted from a shelter), we donate to necessary medical expenses and emergency services for dogs in need and provide food and supplies to dog owners who are experiencing financial difficulty.

In effort to reduce the number of unwanted dogs ending up in our shelters, we offer financial assistance for spay/neuter surgeries for owned RI dogs. Contact us!
