Almost Home


   It may not look like much now, but as the future site of The Almost Home Project, a no-kill pet adoption center with a low cost spay/neuter clinic, it is a dream true for animal lovers in Lewis County. The two acre piece of property located at 2660 NE Kresky Ave. in Chehalis was purchased in early June. The purchase was made possible with a $225,000.00 donation by Darren Pritt for the purpose of purchasing the land.

  Almost Home Coalition was formed to act as advocates for animals in Lewis County by increasing adoption and decreasing the overpopulation of animals. We promote responsible pet ownership in Lewis County by educating the community on the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. The group holds many off site outreaches and adopt-a-thons to try to place as many animals as possible in homes. We could hold adopt-a-thons every weekend and still not find homes for them all. There just isn’t enough room at the shelter. More space for the overflow will make a huge difference and give these pets a second chance. Because of the number of unwanted pets in Lewis County, our dream has been to build a no-kill facility for Lewis County. It is also our goal to educate our community on the benefits of spaying and neutering their pets so that in addition to increased adoptions the number of pet births decreases" said Patty Kaija, President of Almost Home Coalition. .The spay/neuter clinic will be the first phase bilt and we will expand as money becomes available. The capital fund drive is now underway and will rely heavily on private donations and grants.
