I mentioned it before - but just to double check - fliers in vet's offices? You could also try fliers at the local libraries if they allow it. A good colour photo is a must as I'm sure you realise.
Do any of the rescues that you've been in contact with have a slot at the local Petsmart or similar - i.e. adoption hour or whatever they call it? I just wondered if perhaps they'd allow you to bring Lucy to some (i.e. you get the benefit of their exposure without taking up a space as it were). I'd ask anyway, the worst they can say is no.
On the pet classified ... I don't know if it would fly, but again, could you state something in the ad to the effect that rehoming would be subject to whatever rules and regs of one of the shelters? This should help deter undesirables. Ask shelter to see a copy of their rehoming contract or whatever it is they use and use that as a template. A genuine adopter (albeit a complete stranger which is why I suggest this) would have no issues with this I wouldn't have thought.
Do any of the shelters/rescues work together with or are they knowledgable about any others further afield? You're in a big metro area I seem to remember, so Lucy faces stiff competion, it's just the reality. Perhaps going some distance in any direction might increase the odds of her being rehomed and/or securing her a rescue spot.
You can try the classified section here on citydata too.
I'll keep thinking. Keep us posted.
