Sweet Lulu came to the DCSPCA after her owner passed away.  She loves everyone and would be the perfect cuddling companion as the days become cooler and autumn takes its hold on the Hudson Valley. Lulu is a good friend and an even better listener who will sit attentively as you tell her what’s on your mind.  When you are done, she will reward you with cozy purrs and head bumps. At just 3 years old, she has all of her life with you ahead of her. She is a beautiful Tuxedo cat with a cool crinkled left ear.
Since the COVID-19 state of emergency, the DCSPCA adoption process has changed. If you are interested in adopting Lulu, or any of our other available pets, please visit  After choosing a pet and submitting the online application, we’ll review the application then contact you to make an appointment to meet the pet you want to adopt.
