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

Kittens and puppies need your help!

DID YOU KNOW…fully vetting and fixing a young mom cat and her kittens costs upwards of $500? And, those  kittens rescued without a mom also need additional bottle-feeding care which increases those costs.


“Mommy Girl” was slated to be rescued from Animal Care & Control by another rescue group, but she tested positive for FIV. They called us and we took her and her sweet kittens (seen here) immediately. They are about 4 weeks old now and eating well on their own. Mommy Girl is doing great! We pride ourselves on having a unique mission, rescuing black cats & dogs and FIV cats who would not otherwise have a second chance at life in a traditional shelter setting. Thank you for helping us to help them!


YOU can make a direct impact on the lives of animals, by providing a tax-deductible donation to Lulu’s Locker; having funds on hand allows us to save and provide medical care for the most overlooked dogs and cats before they are slated to be put to sleep. Sadly, open-admissions shelters and city pounds are overly full due to mating season, and dogs and cats are euthanized daily because cage space is not available.

When we have funding available to cover vet costs, we can then move forward with rescuing an animal. Every life matters, and without your critical support we cannot save orphaned animals, or young puppies and kittens with their mom.

Donate today! It’s never, ever too late to help. Thanks for your support – without individuals supporters like you we could not do what we do for needy animals.
