Portage Animal Protective League:

Meet Alora...

IMG 9414

Sweet Alora is here in limbo. At 6 months she is too old for people who are looking for a kitten, but too young for the ones looking for an adult. She came in with her sisters and has been nothing but sweet. She will need a patient family that will give her a couple days to get comfortable in a home as she has never seen the inside of a home. If you mention you saw her in this post you will receive $10 off her adoption fee of $75.00. Please fill out an application at

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 Candy Apple...

IMG 9413

She is a 3 year old Pit Bull/Hound mix who weighs about 65 pounds. The staff describes her as the perfect dog. She's a huge sweetheart who loves attention! She can be shy with new people, but once she warms up she can't get close enough to you. She' knows basic obedience command and loves to greet you with "shake" even before you ask for it! She loves to play with her toys and enjoys running around in the yard for as long as she can. She shows potential with other dogs, but with a slow introduction she'll likely warm up quickly.

If Candy Apple looks like the sweet treat that you're looking for, give our adoption counselors a call at 234-212-9843 to learn more about how our adoption by appointment program works!
