Almost Home Animal Rescue began as a community effort to re-open an animal shelter in Chariton, Iowa. Since our first steps in September 2022, we have received an outpouring of support from near and far. 

As of May 2024, we are making building renovations and repairs so we can create a safe, welcoming space for homeless pets in both Lucas and Wayne counties. Our goal is to open in summer 2024 and give homeless animals the love and support they need to be adopted to their forever homes.

There is immense power when a group of people with similar interests gets together to work toward the same goals.
