Capital Campaign


Spring 2024 Update: Construction of the new facility is underway and expected to be complete by Fall 2024, but we still need your help. Read more here.

The ALMOST HOME CAPITAL CAMPAIGN is a campaign to renovate a new building for our no-kill animal shelter. For years, we’ve undergone fundraising to purchase a building of our own. With your help, mission accomplished! Now, we must renovate it and transform it from an office building to an animal shelter before we can move into the new facility.

Animal Rescue New Orleans (ARNO) has been in a converted warehouse since our organization was founded in 2006 in the months following Hurricane Katrina. Today, the building’s condition is deteriorating. We have limited parking and yard space, not enough office or medical space, and there are no rooms for things like meetings, adoption meet and greets, training, education, etc. Most importantly, the building is poorly insulated and lacks central heat and air, which makes keeping our animals comfortable during the hot summers a pressing challenge.

The new building for our no-kill animal shelter will be insulated and climate-controlled. It will provide a bigger outdoor area for play groups, behavior training, and for the dogs to spend more time outside of their kennels. It has ample parking and space for all of our rescue needs. For our cats, the new building will have a larger space indoors and an area outdoors for our feral cat colony.
