Meet Willow:

IMG 0084

Are you lonely? Do you not want to be bothered with letting a dog in and out? Maybe you work longer hours and a dog just is not for you. Well meet Willow!! She is a super sweet independent girl who likes attention but does like her space. She would prefer to be the only animal in the home, I mean this assures her she will get her space. She loves to be petted, not a big toy player and would rather lounge around and people watch. So a home with a view of outside would fit her perfectly. She is only 2 years old and as long life ahead of her, let’s get her in home instead of spending her time in a cage. If interested please email Tammy at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., mention you saw her in this ad and receive $10 off her adoption price of $75. She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and worm prevention given plus a free wellness exam.

Portage Animal Protective League is a private, non-profit organization, dedicated to the advancement of animal welfare and responsible pet ownership.  In support of the mission, we:
-Shelter and find safe homes for injured, abused, surrendered and abandoned animals
-Uphold and enforce all animal cruelty laws
-Reduce pet overpopulation through spay/neuter programs
-Educate the community on the social responsibility associated with pet ownership
-Provide food through our food assistant program for those eligible in Portage County 

The Portage APL is a “limited access, unlimited stay” shelter. This means that adoptable animals remain at the shelter until the right home is found. All animals admitted to the shelter receive the love and care they deserve. Portage APL does not euthanize for space or time constraints. That is why we are called a “limited access” shelter. However, there are some circumstances under which we may euthanize.

Humane Society of Summit County:

Meet Chelsea:


Meet Chelsea!

Chelsea is a 10-year-old Pit Bull mix and weighs about 65 pounds. This lovely lady just returned from her foster home. Her foster says that she loved to go on walks, but sometimes needed some rest after a long one! Chelsea has a cute little snore throughout the night and was a big hit on her foster's zoom meetings! She's the perfect companion at home and loves to cuddle up on the couch for attention. She was completely housetrained in the foster home and didn't have any issues while she was there! She can be shy when she first meets some new people, but after some cookies she warms up quickly and is your new best friend! She can be dog selective but has potential with the right one and shows a possibility with kitties too. Chelsea is a loving and sweet dog who can't wait to find her forever home to nap the days away in.

If this senior sweetie looks like the pup for you, give our adoption counselors a call at 234-212-9843 to learn more about Chelsea and schedule an appointment to come in and meet her!
