They help pets find their forever home, but they could lose theirs unless they raise enough money.
“Lost Our Home” is a nonprofit shelter that changes the lives of animals and their human companions. They organize adoptions for over 850 dogs and cats every year, connecting families with furry friends. They also go above and beyond to step in when people can’t care for their own pets. Oftentimes, they take in animals for a few months while their owners get back on their feet, whether their struggles are due to illness, work, money or family emergency. They will care for these animals for up to 90 days. This is a free option for those going through a rough time, as the shelter doesn’t want unemployment or medical problems to be the reason why someone has to get rid of their pet.
While the shelter makes an amazing difference in the community, they are now in need of help as they face an uncertain future. The no-kill shelter has only six months to raise at least $200,000 so they can buy their building and continue their service to animals in need. They have set a goal of $1.75 million, and they were helped immensely by an anonymous donor who stepped in and gave one million. The Rachael Ray Foundation gave $250,000. Now, they have until May to raise the remaining $200,000. To learn more about the shelter or to donate, please visit the official website of Lost Our Home.
