At Lost Our Home Pet Rescue (LOH), Valentine’s Day just got a whole lot sweeter. The nonprofit, no-kill pet shelter has received a $100,000 donation for their Home At Last capital campaign, from Lulu’s Fund, a part of the Timothy T. Day Foundation. The campaign will raise $1.75 million to purchase and renovate the 8,400 square foot building they currently occupy in Tempe to enhance life for the pets in their care and to better support the people who provide the love that the pets need to survive and thrive.
“We are so grateful to be a part of the Lulu’s Fund community,” said Jodi Polanski, founder and executive director, Lost Our Home Pet Rescue. “Their contribution helps further our mission to provide compassionate services to pets and people in crisis and it is so fitting to announce this generous gift on Valentine’s Day because Lulu’s Fund has brought so much love to the animal welfare community.”
“After touring Lost Our Home, I knew Lulu’s Fund needed to be a part of their capital campaign,” said Sandy Day, Vice Chairman, Lulu’s Fund. “Lost Our Home cares for a segment of our community that often has very limited resources and they are a lifeline to many. Observing firsthand the passion and compassion shown for the animals and people they support is truly inspirational.”

About Lost Our Home Pet Rescue
Lost Our Home was founded in 2008 in 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. They are the only shelter in Maricopa County dedicated to rescuing pets abandoned or at risk of homelessness due to pet parents’ life crises such as eviction, domestic violence, job loss or illness. They have helped more than 21,000 pets. They have saved the lives of over 4,000 pets, reunited more than 700 pets with families through their Temporary Care Program, and fed 17,000 pets through their Pet-Food Bank Program. They also have a partnership with the Sojourner Center, one of the largest domestic violence shelters in Arizona, in which they operate a pet shelter on their campus so that woman escaping domestic violence can have their pet with them while they heal.
