Pet Rescue Weekend at The Animal House

Harmony available at Underhound Railroad
Two rescue groups, Almost Home Rescue of Maine and Underhound Railroad, will be featured at The Animal House in Damariscotta on October 26th and 27th.

Almost Home will be presenting adoptable dogs and information about fostering, volunteering and their rescue group on Saturday, the 26th, from 11am-2pm.

Almost Home relies on a network of foster families to house dogs until they find their forever families. The dogs transported arrive with a current Health Certificate, meet Maine and New Hampshire state import and vaccination requirements, are wormed, microchipped, and transported on an U.S.D.A. approved transport. Once in Maine, the dogs then are placed with foster families.

On Sunday, the 27th, Underhound Railroad is hosting a Halloween Party. They will be at The Animal House from 10am-2pm, and will have bobbing for apples and other games for dogs, a costume contest, games and face painting for the kids, plus their very popular vegan bake sale. All are welcome to attend. A raffle for a gift certificate to Meadowsweet Inn for Dogs will also be awarded to a lucky winner.

Underhound Railroad also works through a network of Maine-based foster homes. All dogs have health certificates and are vaccinated and spay/neutered. Many of their fostered dogs will be present at the event, looking for forever homes. Information on fostering and volunteer opportunities will also be available.

Available dogs may be found at the Underhound Petfinder website:

Joining Underhound Railroad will be Stella & Chewy’s, a dog and cat food company specializing in frozen and freeze dried treats and complete dinners. Samples and coupons will be handed out during that time.
