We first met Lolo in 2015 at North Central Shelter when Nana, a long time Skid Row resident, landed in the hospital. Upon release, Nana came to redeem Lolo and met our counselor, Sandra. Like many living on Skid Row, Nana suffered from some mental issues and struggled with substance abuse.
Over the years we helped Nana with collars and leashes, dog food, an Emotional Support vest for Lolo, and the occasional redemption fee when unfortunately Nana would be arrested. Sandra even attended a court hearing with Nana in case she was taken into custody and Lolo needed a place to go.
At the end of December 2016, Lolo appeared at the shelter once again. We placed calls to Nana and got no reply, which was odd. We later learned that Nana had been taken to the hospital, and after living a hard life, we are extremely saddened to hear that she passed.
Nana and Lolo had become a regular part of our program, and now we are making sure that we do our best to care for Lolo. Sandra is temporarily fostering Lolo until she moves to a new foster home, and Lolo is now A Purposeful Rescue dog.
Lolo is a 4 year old Chihuahua mix. She weighs 19 pounds and is sweet as sugar and loves to snuggle. We have all fallen in love with her. She is potty trained, and we she gets on great with Sandra’s other dogs and cat. Lolo is spayed and up to date on all her vaccines.
