PHOENIX – Lost Our Home Pet Rescue in Tempe is set to start shelter renovations on May 6 after a donation of services from a planning and design firm.

The improvements for the no-kill shelter include a new medical room, improved safety features and increased capacity.

Lost Our Home Pet Rescue is also asking for donated construction supplies or services such as roofing, carpentry and plumbing.

The nonprofit was founded in 2008 and has helped more than 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 assists homeless people with pets and offers up to 90 days of free care for the animal.

The main shelter is located on Hardy Drive and 23rd Street.

FM Solutions donated over $92,000 in design work and assessments for the shelter’s renovation, according to the release.

“Community involvement and contribution lies at the heart of our culture at FMS,” Curtis Slife, owner and president of FMS, said in the release.

“We strongly believe that our individual employees as well as the FMS team can have a significant impact on improving multiple aspects of our community.”

We want to hear from you.
