My name’s Lula and I’m here to tell ya that a country girl CAN survive. When my rescuers found me, I had just given birth to nine puppies down by the river bank and even though I was taking great care of them, I was starving. I gave them everything I had and was almost about to give up because I was so sad and hungry. I let out a big howl and two of the nicest people in world were fishing close by and heard me. They put all of my puppies in their buckets and I happily followed them to safety and most importantly, food! It was really weird being inside of a house at first but I’ve definitely gotten used to it and things have been pretty great ever since. All of my babies have found homes and I’m in much better shape.  I’m just so grateful to be around people of all ages and I really like other dogs too. When you’ve been down and out like me, you appreciate everything. I still prefer being outside where I can run free but I’m good anywhere as long as there are loving humans nearby. The wonderful folks who found me aren’t able to give me a forever home so I’m hoping a nice family will see my story and realize how much they need me in their lives. I’m feeling awesome and now I can’t wait to give YOU everything I have!

Since Lula's estimated birthdate is 04/07/2015, her adoption fee is $275 [senior citizens (age 62 and older) and military personnel receive a 15% discount on adoption fees].   If you want to know more about Lula and to speak to an Adoption Counselor, please complete an application at https://furkids.org/dog-adoptions/application.   Must be at least 21 years of age to apply.

About Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters

About Our Rescue Group...

Furkids/SmallDog Rescue and Humane Society, Inc. is a 501c)(3), tax-exempt organization dedicated to find loving families for homeless dogs in the Atlanta area. Every year, over 90,000 animals are killed in Georgia shelters. Our volunteers rescue many dogs from local shelters and foster them in their own homes until a suitable forever home is found. We do not shy away from taking sick or difficult dogs into our program. Thanks to donations, we are able to provide excellent medical care for all of our little orphans. Our volunteers work tirelessly on training, socializing, and giving the dogs all of the loving care that they so much deserve. Thanks to our friends and supporters, we have been able to save many lives in each of years. It is caring individuals like you who can make a difference in the lives of our wonderful orphan animals.
