December Charity Spotlight on Lilo's Promise Animal Rescue

By madwire. | Giving Back

"Enriching the Lives of Dogs and People, One Rescued Pit Bull at a Time"  

December Charity Spotlight on Lilo's Promise Animal RescueLilo's Promise Animal Rescue is a nonprofit organization specializing in rescuing “bully breeds” in their final days at local Philadelphia and South Jersey shelters and providing them with the lives they deserve. Homeless American Pit Bulls Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, and related breeds are welcome to stay with Lilo's Promise volunteers until forever homes are found, no matter how long it takes.

Dedicated volunteers provide dogs with love, veterinary care, and safe housing. During their stay at Lilo’s Promise, dogs receive basic obedience training and exposure to various social situations. The Lilo’s Promise goal is to provide every rescued dog with a “New Beginning regardless of breed, background, age, or disability by making the best possible match for both the dog and his new family.


Lilo’s Promise co-founders, Anita Anastasi and Jennifer Conners, first met Lilo in 2003 while working as volunteers at a local shelter. Lilo was a young female pit bull with the sweetest face - a favorite of the volunteers. When Lilo became very ill and was hospitalized, Anita and Jennifer spent time together visiting Lilo in the hospital. Lilo eventually returned to the shelter, and to the delight of all, she was adopted by a vet tech who had cared for her. Sadly, Lilo lost the battle with her illness shortly after she was adopted.

Anita and Jennifer were devastated by Lilo’s loss, but through this experience, they learned much about the pit bull breed and discovered they shared a philosophy and a vision of running their own rescue. In 2006, in honor of their beloved Lilo, Anita and Jennifer started Lilo’s Promise Animal Rescue.

In addition to making perfect matches and sharing the joy of adopting a homeless companion, Lilo’s Promise educates the community with programs emphasizing the importance of spaying and neutering, obedience training, and advocating against Breed Specific Legislation while.

The Lilo’s Promise team is working toward a new dream of opening an adoption home and safe haven - a place where dogs can play, train, and live in a safe home environment until they are adopted into forever homes. This dream project is called LOTUS House, an acronym for Life Options through Unconventional Sheltering.


This unique concept is a home where dogs will live, heal, and blossom while learning obedience and socialization. Separate from the successful Lilo’s Promise foster program, LOTUS House will house dogs who need the consistency of training in a safe home environment. At LOTUS House, dogs will exercise every day, play with other dogs, and socialize with volunteers. Dogs will also learn house manners - housebreaking, crate-training, and much more. Lilo’s Promise believes dogs living in this type of environment will be better prepared for successful adoptions.

Lilo’s Promise needs to raise $150,000 to achieve the LOTUS House dream. There are many creative ways you can help including the gift of a financial donation. Please consider joining 4Knines in supporting the dogs in the care of Lilo’s Promise volunteers.

Great Protection

I think this seat cover is going to work out just fine. It fits well, was extremely easy to install. Just waiting for my new puppy to be old enough to bring home.

Seat cover just received

It would be nice to be able to actually get some use out of it before I can honestly review the product. I will say that so far my experience with 4Knines has been wonderful. Their customer service is great.

Great Cover

I been getting these covers for many years and have never been disappointed with them great quality and well made something you don't see very much anymore !

Jere Miller

If you have dogs, and love your car, this is a must buy!

I recently purchased the Cargo Cover to protect my new Subaru Outback. My dogs love car rides, but they're also shedding dogs and make a mess. The Cargo Cover took a brief 30 seconds to install and provides protection against dirt, scratches, hair, dander. It's super easy to clean-up too!

Ryan Bracken

Great Product!

XL cargo liner fit my GMC Yukon Denali perfectly. While our 20 lb dog doesn't put much stress on the liner, it works great keeping the back clean from carrying our often muddy recumbent bicycles around. Top notch product, fast delivery. Thanks!

Leon Campbell

Great products. We are return customers.

Bought the bench cover and side panels for our Nissan Pathfinder. Looks great. We have the same set up in our Titan truck and couldn't be happier with the protection it gives to our leather interior. Highly recommend. Shipping was super fast!!!

Marchelle Jones

Super nice

I purchased seat covers for my Ford F-350 and my Ford Edge - really nice fit and I have piece of mind knowing my seats are protected!

Deby Hackney

Well Done!

Bought the seat cover for a rental SUV we were using on a road trip. It worked great. Kept off all the dog hair and our fur baby rolled around on it like crazy. Am going to move it to our everyday SUV. Nicely done!
