Almost Home To Reopen As Clinic

By Frank Sinatra, AAP Editor

Almost Home Animal Shelter has closed its doors, but not for good. The local non-profit is giving its facilities a makeover for its next chapter.

“We’re back,” says Nancy Welsh, owner.

According to Welsh, the kennel walls have already been powerwashed, thanks to a generous donation by John’s Powerwashing in Voorhees; new LED lighting – also donated – will be installed throughout the building; and Lowe’s Home Improvement in Maple Shade provided a discount on supplies for other renovation projects.

After a few weeks of “spring cleaning,” Almost Home will reopen on May 9 as a independently-run clinic rather than a shelter, offering services such as vaccinations, heart worm testing, and microchipping.

“If you call ahead, we’ll still take surrenders if we have room,” explains Welsh. “People can also still call if you’ve lost a pet or found a pet.”
