Petsmart has made it possible, through both cash and in-kind contributions, to launch the first ever Emergency Shelter for families with their pets in Arizona. There are many families in homelessness with their pets.

According to the Director, "it was just horrible to hear a homeless family refuse shelter because their pet(s) weren't welcome. Now we welcome the entire family, including the pets. Thank you so much Petsmart for making such a huge difference in the lives of these families.

    Hanging out with Channel 10!

    July 9, 2014 @ 11:24 am posted by admin


    Feature Segment on Channel 10 News with Cory McCloskey!

    We had an exciting visit today from Channel 10 News & Cory McClosky featuring our #Savethepuppiespaws campaign! We discussed our goal to raise money for a shade canopy in our dog run area. They filmed a live segment this morning and featured Family Promise and our pet area.

    Our very own Morgan Taylor starred in the interview. Everyone had tons of fun and Cory is truly a lovely person. He was warm and friendly with all the families and he even stuck around to hangout with the families and take pictures with them after the cameras stopped rolling.  The families were absolutely thrilled.  We will be sharing those photos on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram today, so be sure to check those out.

    But most importantly!  Please share the link below on your Facebook pages, and email it to friends and family.  This is how we can really get some legs under this fundraiser, but even more importantly sharing the good news and attention pays big dividends for us with foundations and donors long term! It also is a great excuse to steward our friends. Thank you!

    Mahalo Mondays at Hula’s Modern Tiki

    June 24, 2014 @ 2:30 pm posted by admin


    MMpage-1 Our much-anticipated Mahalo Mondays event at Hula’s Modern Tiki Scottsdale is beginning soon! Starting Tuesday July 8th and continuing every following Monday this July, Hula’s Modern Tiki Scottsdale has generously offered to donate 10% of their day’s profits to Family Promise.

    We will use this charitable donation to help reach our $6,000 goal in our #savethepuppiespaws campaign. PetSmart generously donated both a Dog and Cat Sanctuary that now enables us to accept families and their pets. Unfortunately, in the brutal Arizona summers, the pets’ Astroturf play area gets scorching hot and burns their paws! We are trying to raise money to build a canopy shade over their play area so they can continue to enjoy the outdoors, even in the summer. Click this link to learn more about our #savethepuppiespaws campaign, and to even donate directly to our online fund:

    You can help us reach our goal while also getting a delicious meal! Hula’s Modern Tiki has an impressive menu that would be good for any meeting, event, lunch, or dinner. Bring your coworkers, friends, and family to Hula’s Modern Tiki Scottsdale Tuesday, July 8th and every following Monday this July for a delicious meal and to help us help our furry friends!
