Lulu's Locker featured in Tails Magazine!

I foster cats for a local animal rescue called Lulu's Locker Rescue. They rescue cats and dogs from shelters around the Chicago area, as well as Chicago Animal Control. Their main concern are cats with FIV+ and black dogs and cats, which statistically are the least adopted animals. (Don't know why, I have 3 animals that are black and they're the best ever!) FIV+ cats are often overlooked and not given a chance because of their condition, but with proper nutrition, care, and health check-ups, they can live long healthy lives just like regular cats!

Recently, three of their cats were featured in the popular Tails Magazine which is circulated all around Chicago! What a great way to get the word out about our rescue and - hopefully - attract new volunteers and foster parents!

Duke and Earl got their own feature  - aren't these two brothers the sweetest?! 

And wise old Tom, who is actually just 2 years old! His interview is very silly! 

If you live in the Chicago land area and would like to volunteer your time with the animals, click here! 

Sometimes, having someone drive or transport an animal can be the biggest help. If you've got access to a car and would like to help with vet transports or adoption events, don't hesitate to email us!
