Gail Montgomery, co-founder of Almost Home explains on her website why she founded the shelter.  She says, “After volunteering at a number of animal shelters and rescue groups, I became disenchanted and sad about the philosophies of so many organizations.  Even the so-called “no kill” shelters were euthanizing adoptable animals. I was devastated……I decided to make a difference.  In 2001, Gail started Almost Home Animal Rescue League. It consisted of herself and her daughter, Lauren. This is when it all began and today it is still saving many lives. She created a place for the animals to not only FEEL SAFE but BE SAFE.
