Almost Home Rescue is an all-breed canine rescue group. They are a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit, run by volunteers, and dedicated to saving lives and finding forever homes for stray, abandoned, and surrendered dogs, most of which are in high kill shelters. They rescue for life—if any of their rescued dogs cannot stay with their adoptive families, they are returned to Almost Home Rescue, never a shelter. Most of AHR’s dogs have come from overcrowded shelters in Arkansas and most recently Mississippi, however, they also take dogs from local shelters, veterinarians, and other situations that require rescue. All of their imported dogs arrive with a current Health Certificate, meet Maine and New Hampshire state import and vaccination requirements, are wormed, micro-chipped, and transported on a U.S.D.A. approved transport. Almost Home Rescue does not have a physical shelter as they are strictly a dog rescue organization.

The Green Ark Rescue believes that every animal's life is worth saving without question. They have made it their goal to rescue as many animals from kill shelters as they possibly can. The Green Ark's dream & ultimate goal is to build a completely self-sustainable animal sanctuary open to all animals in need. Their success is made entirely possible by the love & support of their amazing volunteers, the co-operation of overwhelmed animal shelters, and generous donations.
