Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Lost Our Home Pet Rescue's mission is dedicated to providing compassionate services to pets and pet parents in crisis, such as foreclosure, eviction, homelessness, illness, domestic violence and other life hardships. Our programs are intended to keep pets with their families vs. surrendering them to overcrowded shelters where they face an uncertain future.

Results: Since its inception in 2008, Lost Our Home Pet Rescue has helped over 20,000 pets. 3,800 homeless pets were given new loving homes, 650 pets were reunited with their families after a crisis and 16,000+ pets were fed through our Pet Food Bank program.

Target demographics: Abandoned dogs and cats

Direct beneficiaries per year: Last year, we helped 688 pets find their forever families. Our Temporary Care and Low Income Boarding programs helped 123 pets stay with their families. Our Pet Food Bank program fed the hungry bellies of 1,500 pets whose parents were struggling financially. 300 volunteers provided 1200+ hours monthly.

Geographic areas served: Metro Phoenix

Programs: Temporary Care Program: Provides up to 90 days of pet care while pet parents deal with a life crisis, such as foreclosure, eviction, job loss, illness, domestic violence, etc. Animal Rescue of Abandoned/Owner Surrendered Pets: We rescue pets that have been abandoned (often without food and water) or take in pets from owners forced to give them up because they are no longer able to care for them due to a life challenge. We provide shelter, food and medical care for these pets, while finding new loving homes. Pet Food Bank Program: Pet food and supplies are given to families in financial need so they can keep their pets. Volunteers deliver food and supplies for those without transportation. Sojourner Pet Companion Shelter: Shelter and care for pets of women and children residing at Sojourner Center. Sojourner Center is the first domestic violence shelter in metro Phoenix to allow women to bring non-service pets with them. Pet Friendly Rental Service: Our realtor volunteers locate and negotiate pet-friendly rentals for harder to place situations and donate 100% of their commission to cover pet deposits. Low Income Boarding: We provide extremely discounted boarding for pet parents that cannot afford traditional boarding.

I have followed Lost Our Home for years and found my newest family member from them. She is the sweetest little thing. Lost Our Home was fantastic during the whole adoption process. They do so much! Not only rescuing dogs and cats and finding them foster and their forever homes, but they also foster for those who are unable to have their pets with them temporarily, and they supply food to those who cannot afford to feed their pets. This is a fantastic organization that really cares!

LOH is a fantastic organization. They are extremely well run and really care about helping displaced/abandoned animals. They even help people in financial crisis by taking their animals in temporarily until they get into a better place financially. They provide food to people that are struggling and have pets! The animals are so well cared for and they really screen potential adopters, fosters and volunteers. Adopters are encouraged to give updates and pictures and they do! It's so wonderful to see the animals happy in their furever homes. God bless LOH! We need more organizations like this!

We lost two cats last year, and found new fur babies through Lost Our Home. We are having a ball with our Jesse and Satchmo. Lost Our Home did a great job for us.

My sister has adopted two cats from this group, and we have visited the shelter and the Petsmart center: this is the most amazing foundation ever! Everyone is truly concerned with the well being of the animals: the most rigorous screening and matching to make sure the pet is a good fit. I have been to many shelters and have adopted many pets, but this is the most caring and professional group of people ever.

Prior to volunteering for Lost Our Home I constantly wondered how I could help homeless animals in my community more. Lost Our Home is the place where that happens in Tempe AZ! The amazing staff cares so much about every animal that passes through their care. I could not be more proud to be a part of such a life changing organization for animals, and for the humans who choose to take them home forever. The mission of Lost Our Home to "to provide compassionate services to pets and people in crisis" is life altering. Thank you for everything you do everyday, and for everyone.

I have been a volunteer with Lost Our Home for over a year and am continually amazed at all the good things they continue to do. When I retired, I looked for a great place to spend some of my free time, and I found one of the best! From adoption of so many dogs and cats to providing low-cost boarding to people who need temporary help, they continually minister to our furry friends and their owners/prospective owners to make life better for all! The core staff and volunteers are the most open and caring people I have met in my long history with non-profit organizations. Lost Our Home deserves any and all support that can be provided! Those of us who donate our time, love and energy love Lost Our Home!

What I love about Lost Our Home is the fact that they help families as well as pets. Such an important mission that is not addressed by any other rescue that I’m aware of. I’ve been volunteering at LOH for about 3 years and am very impressed with how the staff treats volunteers. We are appreciated and are constantly encouraged and provided opportunities to learn more about the animals we care for. And a shout out to the “Cat Room Crew” at Petsmart Elliot Rd in Tempe! They are the most enthusiastic group of cat lovers, working hard to find great homes for the kitties!

LOH is a valuable resource to the community. Their commitment to finding homeless and surrendered dogs and cats new homes is remarkable. They have a great fostering program for kittens and puppies that would normally be euthanized due to their tender ages. Their facility in Tempe, AZ is undergoing renovation so it will be even better in providing a safe haven for these animals. They have a committed staff and a team of volunteers that assist in their endeavors. I'm a proud owner of the most handsome of cats that I raised from the age of 2 weeks! This is a great organization!

I have volunteered for this nonprofit every week since 2012. They started out in a small retail store and now have their own shelter. The shelter is being expanded to help more animals and people. They partner with their community-police, domestic abuse, rescue, supply food and temporary shelter/boarding just to name some of their services. Plus they are great people and are like family. I look forward to continuing my association with this great non profit—LOST OUR HOME PET FOUNDATION.

I am a volunteer with Lost Our Home, I primarily do events outside of the shelter but love spending a day just snuggling all of the animals and helping staff catch up on paperwork. The team at LOH is amazing, they work hard and take their jobs very seriously but have created such a welcoming environment for volunteers and adopters. I am so grateful for the work that they do for the community!

I volunteer with the dog and participate at adoption events.
This nonprofit provides life changing accommodation and new homes and lives for animals who are homeless through no fault of their own. It also assists people who need time to get their lives in order or are victims of abuse & temporarily need shelter & care for their pets. Wonderful people doing amazing things for people and animals in need.

Our family has adopted all three of our fur-kids (2 cats and one dog) from Lost Our Home, and we were so impressed with the shelter, the people who work their, and their mission, that my daughter and I became volunteers to support their efforts. The volunteers and staff work well together to care for and find homes for these sweet animals who have, through no fault of their own, lost their homes. I am so thankful that Lost Our Home is in our community making a difference every day!

I am a volunteer and an adopter of two amazing dogs! I see first hand the love and care the employees and volunteers take with each animal. It’s as if each dog or cat was their own! I am proud to volunteer at a shelter that does such good for the community too and it’s partnership with Sojourners and the work that happens to keep families and their pets together through the temporary care program. Not to mention meals on wheels for pets of families in need!

We recently adopted a sweet 1 year old chihuahua mix from this shelter. It was clear how much love and care is poured into this place and how well all of the animals are taken care of. Our pup was in excellent health, she had all of our shots and microchipped! I have even recommended friends to adopt all of their pets from Lost Our Home!

I was fortunate enough to get one of my kitties from Lost Our Home after losing my 20 year old kitty. I met a wonderful adoption counselor and was able to spend quality time with my new baby that we named Cali!

I started following them on social media and often would stop by and say hello to the cat crew when I was getting supplies at the store. Not long after I joined the crew as a volunteer and my partner and I volunteer for them every other weekend! I spread the word of what this agency does and believe strongly in their cause to help animals and people!!!

I fell deeply in love with the many programs for cat/kitten enrichment. Seeing how they were taught to socialize and communicate with people (and other cats) was inspiring, and I wish more programs like this one existed.

Lost Our Home is an amazing organization with such dedicated staff, volunteers and community leaders. After loosing two of my lifelong cats, I learned of LOH and immediately knew it was where I wanted to adopt my new fur babies. I now have two wonderful kitties, am thinking of volunteering and will continue referring others to LOH. Thank you for all you do and the joy you bring to so many families!

This is a great organization to volunteer for. They are willing to train and work with my teenagers to train and work with the animals. The classes are informative and useful both for at the shelter and my own pets. They do a great job of matching people with animals of similar personality.
