Lulu’s Locker Rescue is proud to be part of this new program and partnership with One Tail at a Time, Alive Rescue, Players for Pits, Chicago Canine Rescue, and Fetching Tails Foundation.
Today we launched CRISP (Chicagoland Rescue Intervention & Support Program). CRISP is a way to help pets and families in the Chicagoland area stay healthy and stay together. CRISP is a new initiative that will pool the resources of six local rescues to work in concert with Chicago Animal Care and Control to provide assistance and support for pet owners in need, divert owner surrendered animals to accredited rescues, and ultimately reduce the number of dogs surrendered at Chicago Animal Care and Control.
We are really excited about this partnership and what it can mean for many homeless dogs in Chicago. Stay tuned for more details about this program and our CRISP launch party.
We are looking for Foster Parents to help make this program a success! Apply here!

Our sweet, 1-year-old Ella, who we just sprung from an open-admission shelter on 1/26/16, had to be rushed to a Chicago emergency room on the evening of 1/29/16. She was found as a stray in Chicago and had the flu, which turned into pneumonia by the time we rescued her. Her symptoms only began to surface once she could relax and be herself in foster care with Lulu’s.
She was in critical condition and in isolation on oxygen for several days, clinging on to her life. Lulu’s supporters from around the country were pulling for her and sending her good thoughts. It was a tough battle but she thankfully left the ER late on 2/1/16. There is at least one month of rest, recuperation, and close monitoring ahead, but she’s well on her way to recovery.
Her first vet visit was $725.00, due to her requiring testing and X-rays. Her ER vet bill is $3,766.75. This subtotal of $4,488.75 does not yet include the follow-up care she requires over the next 4 – 6 weeks, as well as full vetting and spay surgery she also needs. We are estimating a $6,000 minimum to cover her full care.
We greatly appreciate every penny you are able to contribute to Ella’s ER Fund. We also appreciate you sharing her story. We rely solely on individual donors and could not continue this important work to help animals like Ella in times of need without YOU!
