Outreach Programs

SNAP (Spay Neuter Assistance Program)

Almost Home’s SNAP program provides an affordable spay/neuter opportunity for low-income families.  Any person receiving government assistance may apply to have a pet spayed or neutered via the SNAP program.  Participation in the SNAP program includes:  spay/neuter, rabies vaccination, combination dog or cat vaccine, de-worming, microchip and a heartworm or feline leukemia test.  The SNAP program is operated in cooperation with participating local veterinarians.

  • Canine Spay:  $50
  • Canine Neuter:  $35
  • Feline Spay:  $35
  • Feline Neuter:  $15


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.

  • His name was Armond but we named him Biscuit. He is the sweetest, most loving, and patient kitty ever! We have 4 kitties total so he has lots of cuddle and playmates. Plus he loves to curl up with his human servants for plenty of pets and love. Thanks so much to the foster family who took such good care of him when he was a sick kitten. He is a wonderful boy and we love him so! !! Thanks again!

  • In October 2012 I adopted a lab mix puppy named Mel and just want to send some pictures and let you all  know how she/s doing.

    I renamed her Isabelle, Izzy for short, and she gets bigger everyday.  She is the definition of a lap dog and she loves to cuddle.  Within the first few weeks of having her she already learned to sit and shake!  Her first night with me she slept in her kennel the entire night without a peep.(shes the first dog I've had that has done that so i was very excited) We're now working on down, sit, and stay. She loves to rip apart her toys and to eat ice cubes! I am so please with how smart and happy she is.  Her tail is always wagging and she loves to give kisses.  I can't thank you enough for allowing me to adopt such a great dog!
