Suzie was found as a stray. The neighborhood she was found in rallied around Susie and tracked down her owner. When the owner was told that their dog was at CACC they were aware and said she was old and was going to die anyway so she did not plan to reclaim her. The neighborhood stepped into high gear. The person who originally found her on his way to the train offered to become her foster home until she could be adopted. Because Susie had been inside CACC she needed an isolation foster and someone without a dog offered to fill that roll. We promised Suzie she’ll never be unwanted again.

Susie is an awesome dog. She is about 8 years old, but don’t think she’s over the hill. Her foster home said she is a great mix of active and quiet. She loves her walks and gets to go on three daily, including a brisk hour long walk in the morning. If she gets her walks in she is completely content and chill. Susie is also great when left unattended in the home; she is completely housebroken and non destructive so she has not been crated in her foster home. She does equally well if she is left in one room, or if she has the run of the whole house. Susie does not go on the furniture in her foster home. That could be continued in her adoptive home, but we’re sure she would love to get up on the couch with you if you want that too.

Susie lives with another dog and they get along great. They aren’t BFF’s but they will occasionally play together. Suzie wouldn’t be bothered by another dog, but she does not need another dog in the home to be happy. People make her world go ‘round. She loves to do anything with her people: walks, rides, watching TV, if you’re going to be there you can count her in. Her foster family used the following words to describe her: Sweet, Obedient, Active, Funny, Loving. They said she is incredibly sweet and loving and loves to follow them around the house. There is not one bad thing we can say about Susie!

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!
