July 20, 2020 - Anne Marie Geary is the Philanthropy Officer with Lost Our Home Pet Rescue (LOH) in Tempe. She told us that LOH began as a grass roots organization in 2008. A video of her presentation can be seen HERE
Anne Marie gave us an excellent overview of how the LOH organization started, how it has grown, and where it is going. They provide a variety of services from Keeping Families and Pets Together, Low Income Boarding, Temporary Care Program and a Pet Friendly Rental program. They rely on over 400 volunteers to support all their programs. They are the only shelter in Maricopa County dedicated to rescuing pets abandoned or at risk of homelessness. They also have an adoption program and a Pet Food Bank. They are currently in a capital campaign to raise $2M so they can increase and improve their facilities.
