Lost Our Home Needs Volunteers
May 15, 2015
Lost Our Home (LOH) is seeking volunteers to deliver pet food to home-bound families in need. If you are available to deliver to any of these, locations please let me know and I will give further details: 7th Ave and Indian School Rd., Higley/Broadway, Apache Blvd & S. Rivers (Rodeway Inn), and Cave Creek and Sweetwater.
Needed At Sojourner
There are lots of new things happening at Lost Our Home, and you are welcome to participate. We are partnering with Sojourner Center (one of the largest domestic-violence shelters in the United States) and opening a shelter at their location.
Most domestic violence shelters around the Valley do not allow residents to keep their pets onsite while they live there, but the great folks at Sojourners want to keep families together by providing a shelter onsite for their furry loved ones.
We will start looking for volunteers to care for their pets just as we do here at LOH; details on volunteering at Sojourners are coming soon.
If you are silver trained (ask Ekback about this level) and want to try something a little different but a whole lot of fun, we are starting a new treadmill training for dogs. One of our gracious and generous volunteers-Gina Page-has donated a treadmill to use for walking our dogs during the summer time when the dirt and pavement are too hot for little doggie feet.
If you are interested in training on the treadmill, just let me know and I will be more than happy to sign you up.
Also Needed: Groomers
We are in need of groomers. If you have experience in grooming, we could use your skills in trimming nails, bathing, brushing (everyone is shedding), and general grooming duties.
As of now, we do not have a groomer's table, I am hoping that we can get one donated to us but in the meantime, feel free to bring your own to use while you are here.
Thank you for everything you do to help our homeless pets. LOH volunteers are the best! For more information, call (602) 445-7387 (PETS)
