Lost Our Home

You'll Have A Friend For Life


January 1, 2016

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life. Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or the SPCA.

Lost Our Home Pet Foundation serves the state of Arizona with issues involving pets and families facing eviction or foreclosure due to the current housing crisis. We offer help in finding temporary housing for pets of families in this situation, as well as fostering and adoption for pets abandoned due to their families being displaced.

Please visit our Web site at for further information.

"Our mission is to rescue, foster, heal, adopt and advocate for dogs or cats who have been abandoned or left behind due to foreclosure or eviction. To provide options for families to keep their pets. To be a source for real estate professionals when they encounter a pet in need, while inspiring community action on their behalf."

We have adoptable dogs and cats at our shelter -

2323 S. Hardy Dr

Tempe, AZ 85282

Tues.-Fri., 11 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sat.-Sun., 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

We also have adoptable cats everyday at Petsmart at Priest and Elliot and various other adoption venues each weekend.

Lost Our Home Pet Foundation does require each potential adopter to fill out an application and submit to a home visit prior to adoption from us. We also ask our adopters to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee at the time of adoption.

These requirements help us to ensure a positive outcome for everyone involved, including our pets, as well as to continue to help other needy pets. We will also do periodic follow-ups and offer help with any post-adoption issues that might arise.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes.

Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet, animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So, rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet-rescue group.
