We are excited to share with you our upcoming “Holiday Fundraiser” that will take place on Saturday December 1, 2012: from 10am -130pm. Located at the beautiful McCormick Ranch Golf Course Located at 7505 East McCormick Parkway Scottsdale Az.

Guests will be offered a morning of great company, a delicious 3-course champagne/mimosa brunch, a silent auction (last minute holiday shopping!).  You will also gain knowledge about Lost Our Home Pet Foundation and our service to our furry friends.

The large silent auction will offer a wide range of products and services and 100% of proceeds will go to the rescue.  This is a great opportunity for you to do your holiday shopping while supporting Lost Our Home Pet Foundation.

Speakers of the day will be WHO RESCUED WHO - hear inspiring stories about rescue pets that are rescued and who in turn rescue people. Meet Sadie and see a demonstration - She is the country’s best accelerant-detecting canine.  She has helped the Phoenix Fire Department go from the lowest rated arson detection unit in the country to the highest rate one.  Our emcee of the morning will be Nick Lowery.

As you know, the rate of homes entering foreclosure was at an all-time high, and the number of pets abandoned in these homes is alarming.  This endemic problem is what triggered Jodi Polanski, our Executive Director, to take action and found our organization four years ago.

Our mission is to be a resource for real estate professionals and other members of the community who discover abandoned pets.   Options are provided for pet owners who are faced with difficult economic circumstances while promoting the¬¬ spaying and neutering of all pets.  Currently, we are at capacity with our services and we are in need of growing our non-profit to continue to meet the increasing demand in our community.¬

Help us fill a home with warmth this holiday season by giving the gift of a second chance to a furry friend and the joy a new pet brings to a home. The funds raised at this event will directly support our efforts to assist more abandoned pets and  financially struggling pets and parents around the valley.

Cost: $40pp.
