Home to our House of Cats (we're just two crazy cat ladies at heart) as well as our efforts with a local foundation Lost Our Home Pet Rescue. Seriously we'd rescue them all if we could, for real with a built in cat room...We believe in the importance of advocating for your pet as well as for those animals that have either been surrendered, abandoned, neglected, abused and often times have just lost their way. Anything and everything about the fur babies that cross our path can be found right here! (SnapChat stories and all) PS all of our cats have moon names, including the two black beauties pictured above :) #HydraRho on the left, #KestrelRonan on the right.
Lost Our Home Pet Foundation, Inc. was founded in 2008 as a grassroots response to the thousands of pets in need as a result of the economic downturn in general and the Phoenix-area foreclosure crisis in particular.
The economic crisis has consequences for the state’s homeowners and workers, but it also has consequences—sometimes fatal—for the thousands of dogs and cats that are so often abandoned, relinquished to area shelters, or underfed. LOH is the only organization in the Valley dedicated to rescuing pets abandoned, or at risk of homelessness, due to foreclosure, eviction, or other financial hardship. The most obvious recipients of our assistance are the pets we rescue, re-home, and feed; however, the mission of LOH is linked directly to the human-animal bond.
In the first 5.5 years of opening we have rescued over 2,600 cats and dogs, fed approximately 12,000 more through our food bank (allowing them to remain with their families) and paid thousands of dollars in medical for our financial aid and spay/neuter program.
Pet Friendly Rental Program: Our Realtor volunteers help pet owners find pet friendly rentals so they can keep their pets. 100% of the commission earned (usually $200 - $300) is donated to cover any pet deposit fees.
Animal Rescue Abandoned Pets: We rescue pets that have been abandoned (often without food and water) in foreclosed homes or after evictions.
Animal Rescue Owner Turn-ins: We take in pets from pet owners who are facing foreclosure or eviction and cannot take their pets with them to the place they are moving to.
Pet Food Bank: We provide pet food and other supplies to pet owners who temporarily cannot afford their pets-giving them the opportunity to keep their pets.
Spay/Neuter Voucher Program: We provide vouchers for free sterilization (or low cost -$15.00) for the pets in our Pet Food Bank program, Temporary Care Program and for families who are financially struggling and cannot afford to have their pets sterilized.
Temporary Care Program: We provide temporary care (up to 90 days) for pets whose owners are forced to move because of foreclosure, eviction, or other financial hardship, and are unable to take their pets with them temporarily.
Low Income Boarding Program: If you do not qualify for temporary care and cannot afford the cost of standard boarding fees at other facilities, our Low Income Boarding facility may be just what you need.
