Then, on Oct. 1, Rick Savagian, owner of Mountainside Martial Arts, will hold a self-defense class for the Women in Business who participated in the donation drive. The class will take place at the Mountainside Martial Arts dojo, located at 3173 E Chandler Blvd, Phoenix, AZ 8504, you need to register in advance to participate. Call for more details.
About Lost Our Home Pet Rescue
Lost Our Home was founded in 2008 in response to the thousands of pets in need as a result of the economic downturn in general, and the Phoenix-area foreclosure crisis in particular. They are the only shelter in Maricopa County dedicated to rescuing pets abandoned or at risk of homelessness due to pet parents’ life crises: eviction, domestic violence, job loss, and illness. They have saved the lives of over 28,900 pets, reunited more than 1,750 pets with families through their Temporary Care Program, and fed 17,000 pets through their Pet-Food Bank Program. LOH also has a partnership with the Sojourner Domestic Violence Center, where we operate a pet shelter on their campus to provide trained, daily care for pets so that women escaping domestic violence can have their pet with them.
