Lost Our Home Pet Rescue Receives $100K for Shelter Renovations

Posted By on February 13, 2018

Lost Our Home Pet Rescue, a nonprofit no-kill shelter, received a $100,000 donation for their Home At Last capital campaign from Lulu’s Fund, a part of the Timothy T. Day Foundation.

“We are so grateful to be a part of the Lulu’s Fund community,” said Lost Our Home Pet Rescue founder and executive director Jodi Polanski. “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 close to Valentine’s Day because Lulu’s Fund has brought so much love to the animal welfare community.”

The capital campaign is expected to raise a total of $1.75 million to purchase and renovate an 8,400 square foot Tempe building the organization is currently housed in.
Lost Our Home Pet Rescue hopes that the purchase and renovations will enhance the lives of the pets in its care and better support the people who are caring for those animals.

“After touring Lost Our Home, I knew Lulu’s Fund needed to be a part of their capital campaign,” said vice chairman of Lulu’s Fund Sandy Day. “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.”
