Help homeless animals year-round!

YOU can be a part of the Lulu’s team, and directly aid in efforts to provide rescue, medical care, and forever homes for the most highly euthanized of all companion animals! Creating a fundraising page year-round is quick and easy for any occasion, including a birthday, wedding, anniversary, graduation, walk/run, growing a mustache, climbing a mountain, or in honor or memory of a special person or animal.

Reach out to 20 friends, family, and colleagues for $5 each – and that’s already $100 for the animals (which goes a long way)! A lot of employers will also match each donation. We’re happy to provide fundraising tips and ideas, like these, along the way. Be creative, tell the world you care about animals, promote adoption, and create your personalized page NOW!

Valentines for homeless animals – Lulu’s Love

Animals need love on Valentine’s Day, too. This year, make a Lulu’s Locker Rescue adoptable animal your Valentine to show your love and support to those with the biggest hearts of all.

With a $10 donation, the Lulu’s cat or dog of your choosing will receive a special treat and card on Valentine’s Day. In the process, you will be aiding in reaching the $400 goal to help more homeless animals come in from this cold weather.

In the comments box of your online donation on this special Valentine’s Day – Lulu’s Love page, please write down which Lulu’s animal you’d like a special Valentine treat to be given to. You can first browse and choose the animal by clicking on this AdoptAPet link.

Please spread the word! And, remember the best Valentine’s Day gift for any animal is a new forever home!

Lulu of Lulu’s Locker passes away

It’s with a very heavy heart that we announce the passing of sweet Lulu, the inspirational sweetheart behind Lulu’s Locker Rescue.

“Early this morning, we lost who I consider the founder of Lulu’s Locker Rescue, our beloved Lulu. A good friend of mine told me that cats are angels that come into our life to serve a purpose. I truly believe this to be true of Lulu. We only had her 9 years, but in that time she made a huge impact. She comforted my son through a rough time in his life. This amazing bond between Lulu and Andy lead me to the formation of Lulu’s Locker Rescue. Through Lulu’s inspiration, many cats and dogs have been rescued and found their forever homes. We have been able to pass on the love our family has felt with other families. We love you and you will never be forgotten.”

- Dawn Isenhart, President – 9/1/2013
