Summer Photos Mark Luinenburg
Longtime friend to Home for Life®, photographer Mark Luinenburg was out at Home for Life® last week for summer photos, to meet our some of our new cats and dogs and for a swim at the Apple River, part of summer we look forward to at the sanctuary each year. Mark's been part of telling Home for Life's® story and sharing the stories of our animals for nearly 20 years!

How fortunate Home for Life was to have both Kirsten Eitrem of KME Photography and Sarah Ernhart of Sarah Beth Photography out to the sanctuary in mid August for our sponsor photo shoot.
The Inspiration for Home for Life's Sold Out Pool Party Events!
Home for Life's Best Pool Party of the Year—the Third Annual—and our new event the Caribbean themed Sunset Swim Party are September 8th and 9th and both events are SOLD OUT!
We got the idea for a pool event after seeing how much our dogs loved to swim; we didn't think there was a need for yet another walk or K95K, but wanted to host an event that would be fun for people and their dogs to attend together.
Home for Life featured on National Public Radio!
In mid-August, media representatives from around the country visited Home for Life® for a press tour of the sanctuary.
