Facts about Martin

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Martin is 5 years old and was recently returned to Lulu's through no fault of his own. His previous adopter needed to move out of the country and was unable to take him along.
Martin was rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control just after Lulu's was founded, and his handsome self was adopted almost immediately. He's a funny guy with a super quirky personality who will keep you laughing. He zooms around and his antics will keep you entertained. In his current foster home, Martin lives with other cats as well as a dog. While he increasingly eats and plays with them, we think he'd shine most brightly in a home of his very own as he is more of a dominant alpha male kitty. Martin is a roaming fellow with lots of energy - a larger space for him to run and play would be best suited for his personality and play-style. Give this guy some down time, which he seeks out multiple times per day, and he will nuzzle up on your chest and put his head and face right up into your neck and face for some serious cuddle time. If you're reading or working on the computer, he'll be right there to help out. Martin adores being around people and he would have it no other way.

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!
