Help Us Stay Where We Are and Make this Our Permanent Home!
Unfortunately, housing insecurity is nothing new for Lost Our Home. In 2012, the building the organization was leasing was sold and the new landlord opted not to renew their lease. Given just a few short months to vacate and find a new home, they faced a difficult task, being that they were both a commercial business and an animal shelter, housing so many pets that had already lost their homes.
The difficulties in searching for a new location were both the prohibitive guidelines that an animal shelter must legally abide by AND their own personal requirements to ensure an ideal environment that promotes the happiness and comfort of their pets. From restrictive zoning laws for animals to the need for a large play yard and adaptations to standard buildings such as drainage, sound barriers, and ventilation, Lost Our Home had their work cut out for them.
After an extensive search, they found the location where they reside now. Centrally located in Tempe, the current site met these extensive needs and they have been thriving here since 2013. In signing the lease back then, they proactively took steps to preserve the stability of their housing by negotiating an option to purchase the building at an agreed-upon price at the end of the lease term.
Now, as they near the end of the lease, they must choose to exercise this purchasing right or risk housing instability and look for a new site.
That’s where you come in.
Lost Our home’s goal of $1.75 million will allow them to purchase the building, complete necessary facility enhancements and safety improvements, and cover operating and administrative expenses for the campaign. All funds are needed by May 2018 to ensure they meet the purchase terms and conditions.
