Portage Animal Protective League:

Meet Bobbie...

IMG 0819

Bobbie is a sweet little girl who needs time to get comfortable. She came in as a stray and afraid of everything. We gave her a box and time to adjust before we started trying to pet her. She has slowly allowed us to pet her and looks forward to the volunteers coming in. If she hears a noise she does retreat back to the safety of her box. She will roll, purr and make muffins when being petted. She will be an awesome companion once she is comfortable in her new home. The lady that brought her in said she would rub all over her legs and come running for treats when she saw her. If you are interested in meeting Bobbie please email Tammy at This email address is being protected from spambots.

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 Ace!

ace 2

He is a 2 year old Pit Bull mix who weighs about 55 pounds. Ace is hoping for a human to spend his time with, but he's not looking to rush into anything. He can be a little timid when it comes to new people, so his ideal home will have people who are willing to give him space when he's asking for it. Ace can be a bit sensitive to new situations and can become overwhelmed without the reassurance of his favorite people. Once he knows you, he's your new best friend and loves to spend time cuddled up on the couch. Ace likes to play with toys and enjoys the company of another canine companion as well. He does well with most dogs and would love to have a four legged friend in his forever home! Due to his initial shyness, if Ace's forever home had children in it, they would need to be ages 13 and up. Ace is a goofy and loving boy who can't wait to find his new best friend!

If Ace sounds like your new partner in crime, give us a call at 234-212-9843 to learn more about him and schedule an appointment to come in and meet!
