Adopt a friend. Save a life. Almost Home Humane Society

Who We Are

Almost Home Humane Society was formed as the Tippecanoe County Humane Association in 1939 and since that time has been dedicated to the care of pets in our community. Today, Almost Home serves more than 3,000 pets each year through its programs.

AHHS is a private, non-profit organization and is not directly affiliated with any national organizations or coalitions. Almost Home is contracted with the cities of Lafayette and West Lafayette to accept all stray animals found within the city limits of either city. AHHS accepts owner surrendered pets and pets transferred from other animal welfare organizations as shelter capacity allows and only by scheduled appointment.


Almost Home Humane Society (AHHS) inspires a more humane community by educating, providing resources and collaborating to improve the lives of animals and their families.


Almost Home Humane Society is Tippecanoe County’s leading animal care and resource organization.
