"Where Old Gold Shines"

We are currently accepting a limited number of orphan dogs - as space and finances allow. Your donations will help keep our doors open to those who need us most. We have Adoptable Dogs in need of homes and many permanent residents who will never know the joy of living in a family environment because they are so damaged, old, or sick that they are best suited to living out their lives with us - here at the Sanctuary. Please consider giving a homeless dog a home.

Skip Free

Ralph E. (Skip) Free
May 22, 1951 - January 15, 2012

Skip was co-founder of Almost Heaven and dedicated a large portion of his life to helping and rescuing animals. Skip was a gentle, compassionate, dedicated man who gave up many personal comforts (including vacations) to help those dogs (animals) who needed him most. Skip leaves behind AHGRR's cofounder and wife, Carol Free.

Almost Heaven will continue to save those animals who need us. It was Skip's request, and last wish that the rescue continue it's work in his memory - and in his honor. It is a legacy that will be fulfilled. Donations in Skip's memory will be used for the comfort and care of the orphan dogs in the care of Almost Heaven.

Thank you, everyone for your kind thoughts and prayers. This is a very difficult time - but Skip's spirit will see us all through ~ Carol
