PHOENIX – Lost Our Home Pet Rescue in Tempe is set to begin renovations to the shelter on May 6 after a donation of services from a planning and design firm.
Improvements to the no-kill shelter include a new medical room, improved security features, and increased capacity.
Lost Our Home Pet Rescue also asks for donations of building materials or services such as roofing, carpentry and plumbing.
The non-profit organization was founded in 2008 and has helped over 5,000 animals find homes.
The 8,400 square foot shelter currently houses 100 cats and dogs, according to a press release.
The shelter’s temporary care program helps homeless people with pets and provides up to 90 days of free care for the animal.
The main shelter is located at Hardy Drive and 23rd Street.
FM Solutions donated more than $92,000 in design work and appraisals for the shelter’s renovation, according to the release.
“Community involvement and contribution is central to our culture at FMS,” said Curtis Slife, owner and president of FMS, in the release.
“We strongly believe that our individual employees as well as the FMS team can have a significant impact in improving multiple aspects of our community.”
