One of our previous adopters, Stacy, was visiting with a senior collie that she was planning to adopt in a Union County shelter. As she was there, a staff member asked if she would be willing to take a second senior collie they had received. They took her to meet Erin, a 10 year old tri-color smooth collie they had picked up as a stray. She said that Erin was adorable and so sweet. Erin gave her ‘doggy eyes’ as she left the building that night. Those eyes were haunting Stacy, but she knew she could not adopt them both so she contacted Almost Home.
Even though we didn’t have an available foster home, we knew that we couldn’t say no either, so Stacy offered to pull her along with her own girl and would be her temporary foster until a foster home opened up for her. Luckily, Erin is great with the other dogs and cats in the home.
Stacy just raves about how sweet and good she is. She says that Erin has so much personality! Upon walking into the front door for the first time, Erin made a bee-line to the doggy bed and lay right down! Erin might have some white on her muzzle, but you couldn't tell her age by how she plays. Stacy says that Erin runs and gallops through the yard when she plays with the other dogs.
We think that Erin must not have seen a toy before, because it took her a couple of weeks to even pick one up. If it makes a noise, she’ll drop it and run away. She gently carries them around as long as they are quiet. She is learning from watching the other dogs in her foster home.
Erin is looking for her forever home, but is very happy to be in her current temporary foster home!

Who We Are
Almost Home Dog Rescue of Ohio, Inc. (AHDRO) , was formed in December of 2003. AHDRO's mission is to provide homeless collies and other "family friendly" dogs a safe haven where they will receive medical care, nutrition and love until an approved home is found; to reduce the number of unwanted pets by altering all dogs in our rehoming program; to educate the public about the importance of altering pets, and to explain that owning a pet is a lifelong commitment.
All AHDRO dogs are placed in the homes of approved volunteers until they are apdopted into homes that have been carefully screened for placement. Each dog is examined by a veterinarian upon arrival, and necessary treatment is administered, or a treatment plan is put into place.
Since it's inception, AHDRO has rescued over 115 dogs from as far away as Alabama, North Carolina, Tennessee and Illinois. AHDRO works hand in hand with animal shelters to save dogs slated for euthanasia, and those dogs are our priority. Our dogs also come from owners who are no longer able to care for their pet due to illness and other circumstances. They are rescued from situations ranging from the lack of care, supervision, starvation and abuse.
Almost Home Dog Rescue of Ohio is run entirely by volunteers. AHDRO receives no government support and operates with funds generated by adoption donations, fundraisers and generous donations from concerned animal lovers. Almost Home Dog Rescue of Ohio is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a registered
non-profit corporation and donations made to AHDRO may be tax deductible.
Adopting a friend
If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs please contact email@example.com Charlene will send you an adoption application to complete. Or go directly to almosthomeohio.org for an application. Once the application is returned, Charlene can discuss the information on the application with you to determine if you are a good candidate for one of our dogs. Lastly, a home visit will be done either by one of our volunteers or another reputable rescue volunteer in your area. We do adopt out of state but it is up to the adopter to come meet and take the dog home. Sound like a lot to go through for a dog? It really isn't as complicated as it seems and it's the best way to ensure a good match.
