Lost Our Home

Calendar Contest

"Lost Our Home Pet Rescue was founded in 2008 as a grassroots response to the housing crisis that left thousands of people displaced and thousands of pets abandoned. Lost Our Home Founder and Executive Director, Jodi Polanski, worked as a local mortgage banker during that time and witnessed these devastating results firsthand.

Pets were abandoned in foreclosed homes, often without food or water. Others were forced into shelters—their owners having no other choice. With the second highest foreclosure rates, and the second highest shelter-euthanasia rates, Maricopa County was experiencing a crisis and no existing service was designed to address the needs of both people and pets.

Jodi was quick to recognize this urgent need and launched Lost Our Home Pet Rescue with just a small network of volunteers who were focused on helping the pets that had been abandoned during the housing crisis. Help and hope were on the way!

Soon we learned that the need was even greater than we originally thought, and we responded by quickly expanding our programs to offer additional programs for pets and pet parents facing other life crises too."

Why Lost Our Home?

"Forty percent of domestic violence victims report that they will not leave their abusive situation for fear that their abuser will take revenge on their pets. Lost Our Home Pet Rescue’s Temporary Care Program and domestic violence partnership program means that these victims do not have to choose between their safety and the safety of their pets."

If this program helps someone take that step, by knowing their pet is cared for, then it is all worth it. 

Had been in a mentally & physical relationship, I know how difficult it is to leave the relationship. Especially when a pet is involved.
