I adopted my first Lulu's dogs in 2011, a 6 month old puppy and a 10 year old senior. I was immediately impressed with how thorough they were and how much they wanted to be sure that the pups they had saved from death row were going to good homes. I began volunteering with them in 2013 after adopting another senior dog that Lulu's saved. Again, I was impressed that Lulu's will say yes to dogs that other rescues might not save because they aren't easily adoptable, like seniors. Lulu's is not your typical dog rescue. Yes, they save dogs from death row (including the hard to adopt), but their mission is also very much about spay/neuter--and they work hard to fight dog homelessness before it starts.
