Almost Home Animal Rescue of Rutherford County is dedicated to improving the welfare of companion animals in our community through rescue, rehabilitation, adoption, spay/neuter, education and awareness.
They work to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome companion animals (particularly large breed dogs and horses) in the Middle Tennessee area.
Opportunities to serve ON SITE: 1. Almost Home needs volunteers for their adoption events. Volunteers at these events help with walking and caring for the dogs, speaking to the public and socializing the dogs with the public. 2. Almost Home needs volunteers for their community events where animals may or may not be present. At these events volunteers help spread the word regarding their mission and collect donations and needed supplies. 3.
