Domestic violence affects both people and their pets and prompts many victims to remain in abusive situations for fear of having nowhere to escape to with their pet. Lost Our Home is committed to changing that uncertainty into assurance through our life-saving partnership with the largest domestic violence shelter in Arizona. Homeless individuals often rely on their pets for comfort and companionship.
To remain together, many choose to forgo shelters or job training opportunities for fear of being separated from their companions. Lost Our Home makes it possible for people to receive job training without leaving their pet behind.
Having no one to care for a precious pet when unexpected medical emergencies, surgeries or illness force people and their pets apart, can leave many uncertain of how to not only care for themselves, but for their pet as well. Lost Our Home supports families suffering from these medical emergencies.

A floppy-eared pit bull mix peered out from under a pile of blankets beside her. The Guardians hopped out of the truck. Sperazza said to the woman. He asked if her dog needed anything — medical care, food, a vest. He offered the woman a hat, gloves and socks. The Guardians are an animal welfare nonprofit based in Smithtown, on Long Island, with a range of programs and a just-completed six-episode show on Animal Planet. Once or twice a year, they go out to the streets of New York City to offer assistance to the pets of the homeless — and to their owners.
In that order. The woman sitting on the backpack was named Rachel.
Her dog was Boris. The Guardians gave her a bag of dog food and several bags of bacon treats and a purple waterproof dog vest. Maybe Boris could use it, Mr. Sperazza said. On Second Avenue near St. Marks Place, a rough-looking man with a black-and-white pit bull beside him sat at a long table with books and records for sale. Sperazza, a big, solid guy in a black Guardians hoodie. He looked a lot like a plainclothes cop, though he is actually an electrician for the New York Mets.
He explained his mission to the man. The man introduced his dog, Sasha. She was shivering. It had started to snow.
