An awesome dog at It Takes a Village Canine Rescue needs your help! Leslie first became aware of Lulu in December, 2016, while at the Pet Food Center, in Newburgh. Leslie met a charming and kind woman with a wonderful story of giving. Her act of kindness helped two dogs, but one remains without a forever family.

It all started when the woman told Leslie that her husbands birthday is January 15th and all he ask for his birthday was for his family to perform random acts of kindness. Yes, his children, grandchildren and even his wife. On his birthday he wanted each of them to share with him what they had done for others. His wife couldn't wait to tell him of her random act.

She had paid the adoption fees for three of the dogs at It Takes a Village Canine Rescue. The woman went on to share that her family had been very blessed financially but had watched their granddaughter battle and survive Leukemia. She said that she and her husband are very thankful for their many blessings in life and want to give to others (and dogs) in thanks. #feelgood #spreadlove #bealight

Each of the dogs had been at the shelter the longest amount of time. One of the dogs, who has been at the shelter for 5 years, is STILL looking for her forever family. How sad, FIVE YEARS!! Remember, all her fees have been paid and she is more than ready to go home! #adoptdontshop #bestfriend

It Takes A Village - LuLu

According to It Takes A Village.....

Lulu is such a happy girl that will wiggle her whole body and shower you with kisses every time she sees you!! She can also smile on command! She is house-trained and crate-trained. Lulu knows basic commands and loves to give people her paw. She is such a playful girl! Lulu is about 5 years old. LuLu has a heart so full of love and hope. Lulu was saved from a high intake shelter. Lulu is going to need an experienced adopter because she has some quirks when meeting new people, especially strange men who she does not know. But, once she knows them, she greets them with a wiggle butt every time! Lulu was always an only dog so she would do best in a home where she is the only dog. While the easy route may be to give up on her, we know that there is the perfect adopter out there waiting to give LuLu a forever home. She is so worth it because she makes your heart smile every time she sees you! She is up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped and heartworm tested. She also loves walks and is good on a leash. We hope you will not just look past LuLu because every dog deserves a happy ending to their story.
