FOSTERED IN: Frankfort, IL 60423
AGE: 3 years old
COLOR/BREED: Black, long furred
GENDER: Male
KIDS: Unknown
DOGS: Unknown
CATS: Yes

HISTORY: 
Simon was found as a stray in the south side of Chicago. We could tell right away that this guy was not meant to be on the street. He sat so quietly in his cage just waiting for someone to pay attention to him.

ABOUT: 
Simon resides in our Frankfort Cat Adoption Center. He is majestic, and large with long silky fur. Simon is an observer. He likes to perch on a cat tree and watch the action. He gets along fine with other cats. He has more of a live and let live attitude. Simon is fine being around cats, but doesn’t rely solely on them for companionship. He likes to be around his humans, and prefers to sit right next to his human companion. He likes attention, but is not overly needy at all. With him being outside, we weren’t surprised when he came up FIV+, but we all know that is not an issue now that more adopters have educated themselves on FIV.

COLOR/BREED: Shorthair Siamese Mix
GENDER: Male

DOGS: Unknown

HISTORY: Fabio was found as a stray. He had a microchip but his previous owner was unable to be contacted.

ABOUT: Fabio has two major needs in life: Snuggles and Snacks. If you’re looking for an aloof or independent cat Fabio is not the guy for you. Fabio lives for attention and loves to be held. He puts the companion in companion animal. Fabio is also very treat motivated so his foster home has started clicker training with him and said he is very responsive. We would love to find him a home that would continue this enrichment activity that he excels at. Fabio will probably do best in a more calm home. He will never be the star of a sports team, but he will on occasion bat a toy around for a few minutes. You can leave your laser pointer in the drawer, he isn’t falling for it. He’s more of a netflix and chill vs a jane fonda workout video kind of guy. Fabio is a more alpha-male cat and he would do best with calm female feline companions, but would also be a great option for someone who only wants one cat. Adopt Fabio and you will have a shadow and bestie for life.

FOSTERED IN: Chicago, IL 60618
AGE: 8 Years (Est DOB: 2012)
WEIGHT: 12lbs
KIDS: Older
DOGS: Required
CATS: Unknown

HISTORY:
Dougie was surrendered to an open admission animal control facility. His family said they could no longer care for him. He had a very large tumor on his front leg.

ABOUT:
Dougie is a very friendly, super easy guy who has few demands in life. He is being fostered with 4 other dogs ranging from 100lbs to 6lbs. Out of the crew his best bud is the 100lb female pit bull, but he gets along great with everyone. Dougie really loves his foster siblings and relies on their company so we will require that he be adopted into a home with at least one other dog who wants to be his buddy. Dougie is a laid back guy and prefers the calm, relaxed life and will do best in a quieter calm home. Dougie loves everyone and has done great with the children he has met, but we think he will do best with older children who can respect that he’s more of a “hang out” than “run around and play” kind of guy. Dougie does not like to be crated or confined, but that’s no big deal because he’s totally trustworthy having free roam.
The only option to remove Dougie’s very large tumor was to amputate the entire limb. Unfortunately the surgical margins were not clean on the pathology report so any potential adopter needs to be comfortable with the fact that his cancer could return or spread in his body because not all of the cancer cells were able to be removed. Dougie has adjusted well to his tripod life and he gets around great. As he has been healing his foster home has said he has gotten more active and animated. Dougie will need a fenced yard to make his potty breaks easier and an adopter who is able to carry him around as needed.

AGE: 10 years
COLOR/BREED: Tan, Chihuahua
GENDER: Male
KIDS: Yes
DOGS: Yes (small dogs)
CATS: Possibly

HISTORY: 
Canelo was rescued from a Chicago shelter.

ABOUT: 
Canelo is 10 years young. When he first went to his foster home, he did not know the joy of snuggling on the couch. That all changed soon! He is a paws up, binge TV watcher with his favorite person. He does have a few stuffies that he drags around, but not really into toys. He prefers small dogs. He has not done well with big dogs. He lives with older children and has met a younger child and did well.
He does stay in his crate at night and when his foster mom goes out. He does have accidents so someone who is home more to let him out would be ideal.
His favorite thing to do (besides be with his human) is to be outside and go for walks. He is even great about going outside to potty in any type of weather, true Illinois dog!
He would love a home where he could spend a lot of his time on his person’s lap being petted. He is a loyal and loving companion. He doesn’t even mind being carried like a baby once he knows you!

WEIGHT: 10-12lbs (Est)

CATS: Unknown

HISTORY:
Sugar was an owner surrender to an open admission animal control facility.

ABOUT:
Just like her name, Sugar and Spice, and everything nice – that is what this girl Sugar is made of.

Sweet describes her perfectly. Sugar is a low key, very chill little lady – perfectly content to be the focus of the room. She is happiest in a soft warm bed, or settled in on your lap.

She is intrigued by the birds and squirrels outside, and will voice her displeasure if they get too close to the window – she does a great job of scaring them away. She enjoys short walks – a few blocks is fine for her – and she is way too sophisticated to chase a Frisbee. She loves, loves, loves plush toys – she does not rip them apart, but she finds fun in taking each and every one out of the toybox, arranging them “just so” on the floor, and then she will lay in the middle of the pile. It makes her happy, so why not?

She’s got a little spice in her too – she has a specific canine “type” that she is comfortable with – another mellow, calm and laid back dog is her favorite. She does get a bit vocal and uncomfortable with a more energetic dog that is all up in her face and will do her best to let them know of her displeasure. She plays hard to get and does not sleep and snuggle with her foster sisters and brothers, she’s just happy to be in the same room where all the “action” is.

She would be perfect in any home setting – she enjoys walking the large suburban backyard, and also enjoys her time indoors. She doesn’t require a lot of space, and could be described as more lazy than energetic. She does not run – at all. She trots to grab a toy, and trots if it’s too cold outside, but I’ve never seen her full on run. She is doing really, really well with her housebreaking, but she is still having the occasional accident.

She is people and kid super friendly – other dogs would need to respect her space and intro at HER speed. Energetic dogs need not apply. Sugar has a grade 4 heart murmur that will need to be monitored throughout her life.

HISTORY: 
Ursula was transferred in from another rescue

ABOUT: 
Ursula is an athletic, curious girl, who is happy to snuggle with me or with other cats, but is also content to sit on her cat tree perch and observe.  She's very petite, but doesn't get pushed around.
she seems to like men best and will greet the dog walker as soon as he arrives, demanding that he pay as much attention as possible to her.  She never hides, but is less likely to come out and greet multiple guests.  She would do well with a person home a lot as a solo cat. But would also be very happy with other friendly cats and cat friendly dogs

GENDER: Female

HISTORY: 
Lyra was rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control

ABOUT: 
Calling all GSD lovers!  Meet Lyra!  She is truly a diamond in the rough.  She has all the loyalty of the German Shepherd and all the love one dog can give.  She is around 10yrs old. She hasn't had the best beginning in life and that is why she deserves to live her senior years in the lap of luxury (at times this may mean literally as she believes she 
only weighs 10lbs) 
She would like to go for an occasional short walk, and will walk very nicely on her leash, but her energy level does not require that everyday.  She loves to sit outside your back door to watch to make sure you remain safe inside. She is totally housebroken and respects house rules.  
Once she knows the boundaries she will alert you of strangers that enter her space.  If you like to comb or brush a dog she will allow you to do it for as long as your arm holds out.  She loves life and whatever that may include, humans, dogs and cats.  She would do best in a home with another dog friendly dog.  She longs to be loved, period.

GENDER: Male
KIDS: Older/Calm
DOGS: Some
CATS: Yes

HISTORY:
Jerry and his brother Ben were adopted out from a partner rescue as kittens. When their owner had to enter an assisted living facility we welcomed them into our program.

ABOUT:
Jerry and his brother Ben are two handsome, calm, large boys. They have lived every minute of their lives together so we will require that they be adopted together. They are both on the shy side and they rely on each other when they are nervous. Jerry is the more outgoing brother and is the first to be brave enough to appreciate your attention. Like his brother Ben, Jerry is full of purrs and headbutts once he gets to know you. Jerry might be scared at first, but he slowly can be won over with some head scratches and might even take a step towards you for more. One of their feline foster siblings isn’t always appreciative of their presence so the boys are separated from the resident cats. Their foster mom spends a lot of time with them and sleeps in their room a few evenings each week. On those nights both boys jump up onto the bed to sleep with her. They also greet her at the door with meows and head butts, especially at feeding time. While one of the resident cats doesn’t appreciate them, the boys are very friendly towards her the few times they have met. The second resident cat loves to go for “visits” to Ben and Jerry’s room and they will all lay together and groom each other. If Jerry gets scared he chooses to run and hide and never lashes out or gets angry. Ben and Jerry previously lived with a senior dog, and would likely adapt well to a calm dog. Jerry and Ben’s foster mom said they will make great companions for anyone lucky enough to adopt them!

AGE: 5 years
COLOR/BREED: Black and White, Domestic Shorthair
GENDER: Male
KIDS: Yes
DOGS: Unknown
CATS: Yes

HISTORY:Buttons was part of an outdoor colony, but was soon found to be friendly so his caretaker didn’t want to leave him outside.

ABOUT:Buttons is your typical big, friendly FIV+ boy. His life on the streets sure hasn’t effected his disposition. He is very gentle. When you first meet him, he may hide a bit until he knows you are a friend. After that he is very affectionate and will rub up against your legs.
Buttons does well with the other cats in the adoption center, but prefers the more easy going cats. He especially likes the friendly female cats. He is not a picky eater, and has good litter box habits.

FOSTERED IN: Chicago, IL 60625
AGE: 10 Years (Est DOB: 2009)
WEIGHT: 20lbs
KIDS: Older
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Yes

HISTORY:
Jason was brought as a stray to a Chicago Animal Control facility.

ABOUT:
Jason is a low energy dog with simple demands. Jason loves to be with his people and will follow you from room to room. He loves to be pet, but he does not need constant attention, he just wants to be where you are. He loves to sit near you or next to you on the couch, but never asks to sit on your lap. He will cry to be invited onto the bed but then generally chooses to sleep down next to your legs. If you’ve been busy all day he will come over and whine a bit for you to scratch his head or rub his belly, but his demands are very temporary and easily fulfilled. Jason has been fostered with two large dogs and has met multiple small dogs. He generally keeps to himself, but every once in a while he gets frisky and tries to engage another dog in play. As is typical with small dogs, Jason likes to feel like he is the boss of the other dogs, so he’ll do best with a tolerant buddy. For trying hard to be a tough guy, Jason is actually a sensitive guy who gets his feelings hurt easily. Jason is not a one-person type of dog, but he does like to get to know people before they do more intimate handling with him. Jason REALLY loves the ladies and generally takes to women faster than men….like...as soon as they walk in the door and talk to him. Jason has gotten use to living in an apartment and doesn’t bark much at the coming and going of the neighbors, but he will bark at people and noises outside if the windows are open. Jason is low energy and loves to sleep most of the day, but he is up in a snap if you leave the room or sound like you’re going to do something fun. He likes to be chased around a little bit but once he’s done its back to his bed for a nap, frequently in the “dead possum” pose. Jason loves to go on walkies and will hop in the car on his own if you leave the door open. Jason has met a kitten and a feisty adult cat. He was very friendly and appropriate with both. He was intrigued by the kitten, but completely disinterested in the adult cat. We are pretty sure he is cat-friendly.

FOSTERED IN: Glen Ellyn, IL 60137
AGE: 6-7 Years (Est DOB: 2012-2013)
WEIGHT: 12lbs
KIDS: Yes
DOGS: No
CATS: No

HISTORY:
Candy’s owner surrendered her during a CRISP (https://www.crispchicago.com/) shift because their landlord decided to no longer allow pets.

ABOUT:
Introducing Candy: The family pet extraordinaire! She is being fostered with two little girls (2 and 6 years) and she loves them! She likes to be picked up, carried, snuggled, and played with. She even takes it in stride when they get a little wound up and rowdy. Candy is housetrained and always goes potty when brought outside. She is a flexible lady and will also use potty pads when offered to her, which can come in very handy on cold days or when you might be gone a little bit longer. Her foster home does not crate Candy while they are gone and she respects all the household possessions. She does initially whine for a few minutes when they leave, but she quickly settles in and waits for them to return. Candy doesn’t seem to be a big fan of other dogs so she should be adopted as an only dog. She does have early-onset cataracts which limit her vision a bit. She goes down stairs a bit more slowly and doesn’t see very well in low-light. Candy’s ideal home would have ample time for snuggling. They also should be able to appreciate her super awesome mohawk.
Candy’s foster family is afraid that she might be a Mogwai (from the Gremlins movies), so they suggest never feeding her after midnight.

FOSTERED IN: Chicago, IL 60651
AGE: Apx 2 Years
WEIGHT: 55lbs
KIDS: Yes
DOGS: Required
CATS: Yes

HISTORY:
Atlas was a stray brought to an animal control facility on Chicago’s south side. Due to his fears he was not a candidate for direct adoption. He remained with that organization for 11 months.

ABOUT:
When Atlas first joined Lulu’s Crew he found the world to be very big and kind of scary and preferred to stick close to home. The scariest places were new environments and experiences. Atlas has made some great strides in learning that the world isn’t really that scary of a place. One of the biggest things that has helped Atlas feel more comfortable is having a confident dog around for him to watch and mirror. It makes such a remarkable difference that we will require him to be adopted into a home with at least one other dog, but would love if he was adopted into a multiple-dog household. He is great with every dog he has met. His foster home regularly dog-sits and he has been great with big dogs, small dogs, senior dogs, and annoying dogs...you name it, he likes them. He is very passive and never corrects another dog, so he could possibly be bullied by overly assertive dogs. The more dogs around, the more confident and relaxed Atlas is. We feel a fenced yard (of any size) would be best for him, but it isn’t a requirement if there is a safe, relatively quiet place for him to go potty. His foster mom regularly takes him on walks and he has made great progress. He is still more comfortable on the quieter side streets. Atlas is happy to have visitors come over but he does need a few minutes to get comfortable with them. Within a few minutes he is sneaking up behind them to steal some sniffs. Within a few more minutes he can only best be described as a “close-talker” as he likes to get awkwardly close to your face and then sniff you all over or stare into your eyes from inches away. Why is this awesome? Because you get to feel velvety soft dog snoot on your face! Atlas loves to snuggle with both people and dogs. He is not being fostered with any children, but we feel he would be appropriate for homes with kids. If they got very loud or rowdy he might remove himself from the situation, but we are sure he would be back snuggling with them once they calmed down. Atlas is the kind of dog that you cannot help but fall in love with once you meet him. He is eternally sweet, and tries so hard to be brave even when he is scared.

FOSTERED IN: Kankakee, IL 60901
AGE: 13 Years (Est DOB: 2005)
WEIGHT: 10lbs
KIDS: Yes
DOGS: Yes
CATS: Likely

HISTORY:
King’s owner had been keeping him in their apartment for many many years. The landlord did a surprise visit and realized they had a dog and forced the family to surrender him to a shelter immediately.

ABOUT:
Despite being blind King is an adventurous guy! When he is introduced to a new space the first thing he wants to do is walk around and investigate. King loves to cuddle and snuggle while in the house, but when he is outside he insists on being set down so that he can walk around and explore the world, he has no fear! King does bark when he can’t find anyone but if you call out to him he will quiet up and use his radar-like skills to come find you. He is being fostered with multiple other dogs and he gets along great with everyone and loves to be in the middle of the action. His foster home feels that he would probably do just as well with cats. King lives with a 13 year old boy and they get along great. He would probably do best in a home with someone who is home often, or has other friendly, social pets who can stay with him while the people are gone. King has one silly/peculiar behavior: He loves to sleep with JUST his head covered by a blanket! King’s foster mom used the following words to describe him: Sweet, Gentle, Nuzzly, Cuddly, Adventurous.
Being 13 years old, King has a few medical conditions that potential adopters should know about. He is currently on the heart medications: Vetmedin, Furosemide, and Enapril, but he is receiving a low dose so this could be increased as time goes on if needed. His vet suggested that 1 year would be the very low end of his prognosis, but she often sees dogs live up to 3 years with his condition. We estimate his monthly medications to be around $80. His general blood work is great for a dog his age and he is still very active. King’s foster mom is doing a fantastic job with him and is doing a great job managing his health and is even personally sponsoring his medications and vet visits, but she would love to share the happiness his joy extrudes with a forever home of his own. King is looking for an adopter who wants a great, happy, glass-half-full companion, but who has the financial stability to cover his monthly medications.

HISTORY: Milena came from a suburban animal control with her littermates.

ABOUT: Milena is the “observer” of her litter. She loves to come and watch the action when her littermates are getting into trouble, but generally doesn’t join in. She’s the teacher’s pet of the bunch, since she rarely gets herself into mischief. She loves to cuddle with the other cats in her foster home. While she is the calmest of her litter, she is still a kitten and does have a bit of a playful side.

HISTORY:
Rookie was a stray.

ABOUT:
Rookie is a little timid but is warming up to people and other cats and dogs. He was found mewing in the corner of a garage; it’s a mystery how he got there. Another mystery is what happened to his back left leg. He does not use it much, but he gets around fine. The vet says there’s no need to do anything about his bum leg since he can walk, run, and jump, and he is not in pain. He does not play with toys much but loves to run around and explore and look outside. Most of all, he loves to eat. He will also sit in your lap to be petted and will purr up a storm.

ABOUT:
Schipp is a big boy with a striking coat. He loves attention from his people, and loves a good play session. Schipp is currently in foster care with a low-key, confident female cat. Schipp will try to be the alpha cat so would need a cat that can let him know where the pecking order stands. He would also be just fine as any only cat. He loves to lay on his cat tree and just look out the window! He has great litter box habits, and is not a picky eater at all!

HISTORY:
Rogue was found with her two 4-6 month old kittens in an industrial area.

ABOUT:
Rogue was likely never completely socialized, so she has some quirks about her. Rogue is currently being fostered with two senior female cats and she gets along with them famously. She also was very good with her own kittens before they were adopted out. She is being fostered in a home with a dog, but hasn’t completely been introduced to her. We believe she would adapt to a cat-savvy dog. Rogue gets very stressed out with excessive handling. She is not comfortable being picked up and it can very very difficult to get her into her carrier. She does love less intrusive handling and will let you scratch and pet her head indefinitely. She has a bit of a playful side and likes to hide in the dark and pounce on her foster mom’s feet at feeding time in the morning. She also likes to play with toys especially mice that jingle and balls. She also likes to play with wand toys but will randomly act afraid of them. She only ever scratches on her cardboard scratching pad. She’s quite the talker and will let her foster mom know that her food bowl is still empty every 3 seconds until it’s ready. She will also mention if her water bowl needs to be filled.
Rogue will need to be adopted by an experienced cat owner. She will need time to trust her new home, but she has done really well in her foster home. She will always have some quirks related to her lack of socialization. She can be a bit unpredictable so she should not go to homes with children. Something that she would tolerate yesterday she might not tolerate today. Things that did not stress her out yesterday, might stress her out today. She would make a fabulous companion for another cat(s).
One day Rogue figured out how to open the door to her “suite.” She went right to the kitchen to demand to be fed. Her foster mom didn’t even notice it was her until she looked down. She didn’t bother looking around or meeting any of other animals, she just went straight to the food.
Her foster mom says she can be chatty and opinionated and you might even say bossy, but also scared and shy. Rogue also has a bit of a silly and playful side.

COLOR/BREED: Black Shorthair
KIDS: Older
DOGS: Some

HISTORY: Sissy was rescued from animal control as a pregnant senior. She raised 5 kittens of her own plus an orphaned kitten.

ABOUT:
Sissy is a sweet, independent senior looking for her forever home. Sissy spends most of her time in the basement of her foster home, but will come running when called or if she hears her foster dad open the garage door when he gets home from work. Sissy found a button on the floor one day so her foster mom put it on a string to play with her and she loved it. Sissy will play with you nonstop if you have that button on a string! Sissy seems to appreciate routine and will come up and meow at her foster mom if she’s late scooping her litter box. She then goes down with her foster mom while she scoops and Sissy purrs and rubs all over her ankles to say thank you. While Sissy lives in a home with cats and a dog, she would probably appreciate being an only pet. She might do ok with another animal as long as they have no interest in interacting with her. While she is an independent cat Sissy loves when you talk to her and starts purring if you even think about looking at her.

HISTORY:
Norman has been a part of Lulu’s Crew for multiple years.

ABOUT:
Norman was a resident of our adoption center for almost a year. One of our regular foster homes offered to take him in because the constant in-and-out of strangers was getting stressful for him, it has also given us an opportunity to get to know him much better!
Norman can be shy around new or fast-moving people and is a bit skittish with new or loud noises; but it didn’t take Norman very long to want to start exploring around his foster home. Within a short month his foster mom was able to gain his trust enough that she can now pick him up. All he needs is simple patience when he is adjusting and he will come around and begin to be more social. He currently lives with one adult and 3 female cats. He gets along very well with the other cats and he loves to play with them. He would do best being adopted into a home with at least one other cat, ideally a confident cat who would love to play with him. Norman’s not-so-secret love is people food, and he is not shy about coming up to ask for (or take) some. He’s not a morning person and is usually the last one to breakfast. Norman also loves stuffed toys and will often sit on top of them to keep the other cats from having a turn! His foster mom says Norman, with his silly quirks and awkwardness, reminds her of Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory. He loves to sit in high places, his favorite being the top of the cat tree by the window so he can watch the birds. Because Norman is on the shy side, we think a calmer, less chaotic home would be the best for him. Norman is a gentle soul with a bit of a mischievous side for fun. FIV+
