AHHS Food Assistance Program
Almost Home operates a food bank for low-income families. Qualifying individuals may receive pet food once every 2 months provided Almost Home has a supply of pet food in the food bank. Almost Home utilizes the pet food donated by the public to stock our food pantry.
Injured Animal Fund
Many pets arrive at Almost Home in need of immediate medical care. Thanks to a partnership with the Purdue Small Animal Clinic (PSAC) when stray pets are found in need of emergency medical care they are taken immediately to PSAC for evaluation. The Injured Animal Fund provides the necessary funds to treat those pets. Each year AHHS hosts Strike Out Suffering to fund this program and also accepts donations throughout the year to fund this life-saving program.
For $20 Almost Home will microchip your pet with a 24PetWatch microchip. This fee includes the registration for the chip. Microchips are the best way to permanently identify your pet and ensure that will find its way back home if lost. AHHS will microchip your pet during any of our open business hours.
Lost and Found Services
If you have lost a pet please contact Almost Home immediately to complete a lost report. AHHS also strongly recommends visiting the shelter in person to look through our stray holding area. You are the best person to identify your pet and we recommend visiting frequently while your pet is missing. If you have a found a pet you have several options. First, if you plan to keep the pet while you search for an owner you may leave a found report with AHHS and our staff would be happy to scan the pet for a microchip. If you would like to leave the pet with us you may bring the pet to AHHS (1705 S. 2nd St.) or call Animal Control to pick up the pet (Lafayette: 765-807-1200 & West Lafayette: 765-775-5200). Almost Home will accept any stray pet found within the city limits of Lafayette or West Lafayette. If you found a pet outside of the city limits but within Tippecanoe County please call 765-423-9321.
