Update: Lula has been adopted!

A senior dog, eight years of age, is heartbroken after her family left her at an animal shelter in Texas. The dog, Lula, is undoubtedly confused about her current predicament as well.

An advocate writes:

Friends, this 8 year old senior is Lula… she is at Kurth Adoption Center in Lufkin, Tx. She was an owner surrender because they say she does not like kids or small dogs. The look on her face is one of total desolation.

Lula doesn’t understand why she is no longer at her home. She doesn’t understand why she is alone – away from the people that she loves. According to Lula’s posting, she is up-to-date on her shots, and spayed. She is also on heartworm preventative.

Will you please help Lula find a new family who would never walk away from her?  Please call 936-633-0218 or email: ccintula@cityoflufkin.com if interested.

The shelter has a foster program to place animals in that would have otherwise been euthanized due to time and space and the shelter.  Fosters provide caring homes that an animal can remain in while awaiting potential adoption.  Fosters work with shelter staff to promote the animals in their care for adoption into permanent homes. Foster families assume all expenses for the care of their foster animal, including food, medical care, and socializing.  For more information about this program, call the shelter.  To apply to become a foster, fill out the Foster Application and Foster Contract, or contact the shelter.

Note: All inquiries about this dog must be made directly to the animal shelter. The Pet Rescue Report is not the point of contact and does not collect pledges or arrange transportation.
