Almost Home Rescue, an all-volunteer dog rescue organization, is now selling tickets for its second annual Party for the Pups fundraiser. 

The event will be held on Saturday, March 30, at the Holiday Inn by the Bay in Portland. 

The cost to save a dog often greatly exceeds the adoption fee. Funds raised at the Party for the Pups will be used to pay for  veterinary bills, transportation, food, flea and tick shampoo, medicine, and kennels for the dogs in Almost Home Rescue’s care. 

The family-friendly event features a silent auction, appetizers and dessert, a 50/50 raffle, music by disc jockey Carmen Cronin and dancing. Tickets are $10 each, $5 for children under 12. Children under 2 years old are free. The public and all dog-lovers are welcome. Tickets can be purchased online at

Donations are also being accepted for food and silent auction items. Deadline for auction item donations is March 22. Food donations must be made by March 15. For more information, contact Kiersten Scarpati at

Last year’s event raised more than $2,000 and has allowed Almost Home Rescue to continue its mission of finding forever homes for dogs and puppies throughout New England. 

Almost Home Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and all-breed rescue organization dedicated to saving lives and finding forever homes for stray, abandoned and surrendered dogs in danger of euthanasia. AHR was founded in 2005 and has saved the lives of approximately 3,000 dogs since its inception.
