Almost Home Animal Rescue League was founded in 1999 by Gail Montgomery Schwartz and Lauren Montgomery Anchill. The mother and daughter team became disheartened while volunteering at various animal shelters.
Being of the ‘never kill’ philosophy, they were disturbed by the endless euthanasia practiced simply because animals were born homeless and society felt there was no place for them.
Gail and Lauren wanted a huge difference in our animals’ lives. Almost Home became the first Never Kill 501 (c)(3) animal rescue organization. Almost Home is the one and only pure never kill organization. It’s truly a place for dogs and cats to not only feel safe but to be safe.
We are so proud of our work and all the people who are instrumental in saving lives with us. Here’s to being the model never kill animal rescue. Love to all. Peace and good life to all.View Adoptable Pets
