Meet Meg...

FB IMG 1652356244278

Do you have the heart to love a dog with a heart defect?? Meg was returned to us after being in a home for 5 years. She is 10 years old and about 45lbs. Sadly after numerous vet visits and tests we found that Meg has a serious heart concern. The veterinary findings noted early stage mitral valve degeneration and AV blockage. 
This finding means that Meg could have a short life or a long life.  Her heart could stop or it could continue to beat as it has for 10 years.
Meg has shown no symptoms of a heart issue and acts normally. We realize this may mean euthanasia in some shelters, but we want her to have a shot at happiness despite her health issues. 
Meg is a lovely girl who was returned due to no fault of her own and would be a great addition to a family. If you would like more information or are interested in meeting her, please contact Jess 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:  

Meet Lionel...


Lionel is a 5 year old pit bull mix who weights about 45 pounds. Lionel is a super sweet dog who loves to go on long walks with his favorite people. He does enjoy playing with toys occasionally but mostly just wants to lay around and relax. Lionel knows some of his basic commands such as sit and with some tasty treats he's eager to learn much more. Lionel does enjoy being around other dogs and would probably make a great companion for a dog in the home. Due to his initial shyness, if there are children in his forever home they would need to be ages 13 years old or older.

If Lionel sounds like a good fit for your family, give us a call at 330-487-0333 ext 226 to learn more about him and schedule an appointment to meet!


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