Meet Callie (or Calzone as we affectionately call her)!! Callie is about a year old, spayed, and housebroken. Also, she's the most adorable size, weighing in around 35 pounds.
Callie has come a long way since her rescue - for the first week, she was so terrified, she had to be carried everywhere. As she learned to trust humans again and began to feel comfortable, her awkwardly hilarious personality began to shine through. She's the queen of trotting backwards and sleeping in the strangest positions! Callie has also earned the nickname "Nibbler" because she loves to come up and gently nibble on your fingernails and rings...her silly personality is seriously so endearing!
Although Callie's still a little leery of people, she hasn't met a dog or cat she didn't want to become best friends with. She truly lights up in the presence of another dog and exudes happiness, confidence, and security. That being said, Callie needs to be in a home with another dog so she can build her confidence even more and learn how to "dog." Callie is very smart but because of her initial fear and insecurity around people, she knows only a few commands so far. However, we are confident that a patient doggie brother/sister will teach her and help her master so many more!
Callie has been known to catch a case of the "zoomies," especially when a bully stick is involved. Getting a little rough and tumble with a dog friend is totally cool with Callie, but she also enjoys relaxing on a nice soft bed with her favorite blanket. Other things Callie loves are car rides, chewing on bones/antlers, sitting in the kitchen while you cook so she can enjoy all the delicious smells, and sitting outside creepin' on all the passerbys. She truly is the sweetest, most gentle girl and gets along with dogs, cats, and kids alike (however, she has only met kids 6+).
Callie is so excited to join your family and you will quickly fall in love with this incredibly sweet, silly and adorable girl!!"

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.

We announce our upcoming Adoption Events and adoption stories on our Facebook page - "like" us today!

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!
