In 2014, Boots was rescued from a local shelter, and was put into foster care with other cats for which he did extremely well. Boots was very outgoing and found himself a home very quickly. Unfortunately, due to housing issues, Boots was returned in December of 2015.

When we talk about Boots, one word comes to mind, "Survivor." Well, maybe two words.....add "Miracle." When Boots was relinquished by his family, his depression hit hard and fast. He refused to eat , and did not welcome attention. This is was such a change from the outgoing boy that we knew him to be. He eventually had to be hospitalized because of organ failure, and even that was was not helping his condition. He took a turn for the worse, and we had to make the only humane decision to let him go instead of letting him suffer. That day when we went to spend time with him, he started head butting us. Our vet told us to take him home and spend the weekend with him. All weekend we encouraged him to eat, and finally he grew stronger and stronger. Once he was cleared medically, he still was unsure of being with any other cats until Lady (also available for adoption) was introduced into his foster room. She also had lost her family and was confused. They blossomed together, and now Boots is almost full circle. He is at our Frankfort adoption center with other cats, and back to his sweet self. All he needs now is a home to call his own to complete his journey.FIV+

About Lulu's Locker Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lulu’s Locker Rescue is a nonprofit, volunteer-run companion animal rescue working to bring to light the plight of black cats and dogs in shelters as well as the misconceptions surrounding FIV cats. We aim to lower the euthanasia rate of these animals by educating the public and providing foster care as we seek out permanent homes. We are committed to the protection of the misjudged and wrongly stereotyped through compassion and respect, which we believe both animals and human beings deserve.

We are based out of Frankfort, IL, and rescue cats and dogs in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

Our Adoption Process...

We encourage potential adopters to ask friends, family, and Lulu’s Locker about companion animal experiences in their lives. We want to ensure the animal we adopt to you fits well in your home environment. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about long-term animal care prior to adopting! Please contact us via email or phone 708-325-8581.

Everything we do is for the animals in our care, and is aimed at giving them the best possible chance of finding a permanent home.

- Fill out this online Adoption Application to get the process rolling! Copy and paste this URL into your browser -->

- Once your Application is completed, you will have a phone conversation with an adoption counselor.

- Once you’ve been approved, s/he will fill you in on the personalities, history, and behavior of the animals to allow you to make the best choice possible for your living situation. You can ask your counselor any questions you have regarding health, behavior, and long-term care.

- You and all members of your household will then be invited to visit the foster home or boarding facility where the animal is currently living. If you decide adoption is right for you, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee which covers the spay/neuter, wellness exam, vaccinations, microchip, and heartworm test (dogs only).

- Animals are subject to a home visit prior to completion of the adoption process.

- You will ALWAYS have continued support from Lulu’s Locker after your adoption! We invite you to contact us at any time with questions or concerns!
