Thank Dog! The Sun Gods Once Again Smile on Home for Life's Pool Party!

2021 pool event

An event, but more than a fundraiser, Home for Life's® Endless Summer Pool Party, is a one-of-a-kind day to celebrate summer, our dogs and all they mean to us. The universe must recognize what a special day this is, for the 5th event in a row we had absolutely beautiful weather.


Going Viral! Helping the most vulnerable cats & kittens at Home for Life! $15,000 Match Challenge

$15000 matching gift

In January 2021, we were contacted by Kindred Kitties of Kenosha, Wisconsin--a group that rescues and finds home for cats. They were hoping that Home for Life® could give Trudy and her kittens a safe landing. The little cat family looked healthy and adorable, but they had tested positive for Feline leukemia (FeLV), a viral disease that can spread to other cats through persistent contact and is ultimately fatal. Though infected, cats with FeLV can live years without suffering or showing any symptoms of illness. Trudy and her kittens were currently healthy.

Photographer Mark Luinenburg was out to Home for Life® on July 3rd to meet some of our new dogs and cats, and catch up with many of the animals we have taken in the last several months. There has been so much activity at Home for Life, with much construction and improvements along with many new faces joining the sanctuary, that summer is flying by! Capturing these photos helps us slow down and appreciate the summer season we look forward to all year.
