Like many non-profit organizations, volunteers are an integral part of our establishment and we rely heavily on their support and hard work. The following is a list of Precious Pets Almost Home volunteer opportunities.
SHELTER CARE: Feed and care for our feline population and maintain the cleanliness of our adoption showcase center. Give personalized time and attention to each cat and interact with the public to promote awareness of the group and pet adoption.
FOSTER: Provide a caring, loving, and secure environment for homeless cat(s) or dog(s) until they are matched and adopted into a qualifying home. We are always in need of foster homes due to the overwhelming number of homeless cats and dogs.
PHOTOGRAPHER: Take pictures of our rescued cats and dogs and edit them for adoption purposes to be used in print and on the internet.
SPECIAL EVENTS: We need assistance at special events throughout the year such as Photos with Santa, various pet expos, and adoption events at Petsmart and local pet boutiques.

Please help our homeless pets in need by adopting from Precious Pets Almost Home.
All of our cats and dogs are spayed or neutered, micro-chipped with an Avid I.D., de-wormed, de-flead, up to date on shots and treated for ear mites. Cats are tested for FIV/Leukemia. Dogs are Heartworm tested. Our modest adoption fee is $100.00 for cats and $200.00 for dogs, unless otherwise noted. Some purebred cats or dogs may have a higher adoption fee. Please understand that the higher adoption fee for certain purebred animals allows us to rescue more animals and it is still much, much less than what you would pay a breeder or pet store! PPAH reserves the right to approve or decline any adoption applications that do not meet the organization'??s adoption criteria, as determined in its sole discretion.
Precious Pets Almost Home is a rescue group/foster home program comprised of dedicated individuals that are joined together by their compassion and love for homeless cats and dogs!
Our mission is to prevent cruelty to animals and to promote respect and compassion for all animals through education. To provide quality homes for cats and dogs through our adoption programs. To reduce euthanasia by saving pets from going to animal control and pulling pets from animal control when resources permit. To provide shelter and care for homeless and unwanted animals, reduce pet overpopulation through spay/neuter and TNR (Trap Neuter Return) of feral cats, and reunite lost animals with their owners.
We are an all-volunteer organization. We do not receive any federal, state or city funding. All of our support comes from concerned and involved individuals like you that share our compassion and love for homeless cats and dogs. Precious Pets, Almost Home Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All donations are fully tax-deductible.
We are a foster-based program.
