Summary:
While no one person or organization is perfect, there are some that really know how to succeed. You can find rescue organizations anywhere and everywhere these days. Many people are eager to start one of their own, but that doesn't mean they're all worth their salt. Almost Home Foundation is a pet rescue in the Chicagoland area that has made a world of difference in the lives of many dogs and cats, and their adoptive families. You can hear founding members uttering "9 years, over 9,000 dogs and cats rescued" as they now celebrate their ninth anniversary.

There are many today who are breathing a sigh of relief - not for themselves, but for the welfare of dozens of dogs. And there are others who are witnessing firsthand the heartbreaking effects of the previous callous, inhumane treatment of those same dogs.

Puppy Mill Shut Down In Lisle

Publication/Event date: 2014-03-03
Publication name: Lisle Patch
URL for more info: http://lisle.patch.com/groups/opinion/p/puppy-mill-shut-down-in-lisle
Summary:
The dogs are finally out of the back room of the Puppy Mill Parlor. The Almost Home Foundation has 35 dogs that are in bad shape. Donations, volunteers, and foster homes are needed. The picture you see, is a before and after. The dogs are finally receiving the care they deserve. No more cages. No more dark rooms. No more scary noises. Real food, not dumpster dived expired food. Real bowls to drink from. Real affection and love from a person, not a monster. No more drunks scaring and abusing them. The ages of the dogs that have spent their entire life in a cage range from 1 year to 5 years, 5 months. That is what you call animal cruelty and should never ever have been allowed to go on for years and years. This was NOT a pet store. This was a puppy mill on Main Street in Lisle.
