Training Wheels Program

Training Wheels® is a nationally recognized program that brings the animal shelter into the community. Working in economically challenged areas, Almost Home offers assistance and resources to pet owners in need. Our volunteers work directly in the community to provide food, supplies, pet care education, training, medical care and most importantly, FREE spay/neuter with transportation. This program services approximately 500 animals per month, assisting over 175 families in the township of Wyandanch, NY alone. Training Wheels® aids in facilitating the bond between owners and their pets while preventing the overpopulation of animals by providing no cost spaying and neutering in areas where it is not accessible. We assist community members to help them keep their pets and not reach the point of surrendering to the already overcrowded municipal shelters. This proactive program helps build a more humane community one family at a time.
