$1 Million Donation Kicks Off Lost Our Home Capital Campaign

Anonymous donor jump starts fundraising for purchase of building

Lost Our Home Pet Rescue has received an anonymous $1 million donation to purchase the building they currently occupy in Tempe. A $250,000 donation from the Rachael Ray Foundation will help the organization make improvements to the building. Both of these donations will jump start the nonprofit’s Home At Last campaign to raise an additional $500,000 to make improvements and renovations to the 8,400 square-foot building that houses approximately 80 cats and dogs.

Jodi Polanski, Lost Our Home Pet Rescue founder and executive director, says the organization will create a new medical room to treat sick pets and administer vaccinations, improve safety features, increase capacity and enhance overall quality and comfort for the animals.

Paradise Valley residents Sharla and Thom Blischok, longtime Lost Our Home supporters, are chairing the Home At Last campaign. They are life-long animal welfare supporters and have created their own foundation called Wings & Wags. Naming rights, commemorative bricks and other recognition opportunities will be available starting at $250.
