Almost Home Dog Rescue of Ohio’s (AHDRO) mission is to provide homeless Collies and Shelties a safe haven where they will receive medical care, nutrition and love until they find their forever home; to reduce the number of unwanted pets by altering all dogs in their rehoming program; to educate the public about the importance of altering pets; and to promote the message that owning a pet is a lifelong commitment. All AHDRO dogs are placed in foster homes until they find their forever families. Upon intake into their program, each dog is examined by a veterinarian and necessary treatment is administered, or a treatment plan is put into place.
Almost Home Dog Rescue of Ohio is fortunate to have received funding toward dental surgeries for senior dogs. Many of the senior dogs taken in may already have serious gum disease causing loss of appetite, weight loss and pain requiring dental surgeries. Not treating advanced dental disease can affect the heart, liver and kidneys. The grant funding will help at least eleven senior dogs with dental cleanings and provide them with the necessary care to bring them back to health so they are comfortable and get adopted faster.
