Pet shelter gets move-out notice, needs place to go

PHOENIX -

A valley pet shelter is looking for a new home. The group is leasing their current space, but a new owner just bought the strip mall where they are located.

Seeing a lock on the door is pretty scary for this organization, which helps pets find new homes. This group, 'Lost Our Home,' now needs a new home of their own.

"With the new shopping center coming in, its beautiful, higher-end, the idea of having barking dogs isn't going to be as appealing to tenants," says Jodi Polanski, founder of Lost Our Home Pet Shelter.

"We need someone a property owner that's willing to donate space or a building or funds to purchase a building or something along those lines, so we have a place to go once our term period is up," says Chris Harris, Program Director, Lost Our Home Pet Shelter.

Six weeks is all this group has to find homes for dozens of animals. Or find a new home themselves. They worry about the 50 animals they care for here -- but also for the 225 they feed through their food bank.

"We would lose our food bank, we need a location to keep our food bank, it would not be accessible to people who need it," says Polanski.

"Right now we can't take anybody else. The faster we find a home for these guys, the faster we find fosters, the faster we find more pets we can help," says Harris.

Each cat and dog was brought here because their owners couldn't find the means to care for them.

This group has the heart, now they just need the money and the place.

And Lost Our Home Pet Shelter says they already have realtors and brokers working on their behalf.
