Portage Animal Protective League:

This awesome boy is named Chicken!!

FB IMG 1655983476888

He loves attention, belly rubs and being cradled like a baby. He was adopted as a kitten and lived happily with 2 other cats for 6 yrs. Sadly his dislikes were the outside cats he could see. Anytime he would see these kitties he would mark on the wall by the window. He has done great here at the shelter (even seeing the other cats). He uses his litter box every time. He would do great in a place that doesn’t have outside cats and no other cats in the home (this way he doesn’t feel threatened by them). If interested in Chicken please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or stop in Wednesday or Friday 11-3:30 or Saturday 11-2:30.

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:  

Say hello to Lydia!

lydia 1

She is a 6 year old Pitbull mix who weighs 45 pounds. Lydia is a friend to all and absolutely loves meeting new people. She is a energetic and bubbly pup who wants nothing more than some belly rubs and a few treats. Her favorite toys are her squeaky toys and she will play with them as long as she can! As you can see from her adorable pictures, she knows a few tricks and loves to give you high fives! Lydia does great with most dogs and could make a great companion to another dog in her new home. If there are children in her forever home, they would need to be ages 10 and older. She is a one of a kind pup who wants nothing more than a home to call her own!

If Lydia sounds like the perfect pup for you, give us a call at 330-487-0333 ext 226 to learn more about her and schedule a time to come in and meet!
