Portage Animal Protective League:

Meet Arlo...

IMG 3593

At just 4 months old Arlo has been through soo much!! He came in with his skin to his chin just hanging, his bottom literally in 2 pieces moving separately. He was scared, didn’t trust us and in much pain. He was rushed to the vet where he was placed on pain meds and had surgery the next day to repair his chin. The jaw, although it looked horrible was not as bad as we thought and would heal on its own. Surprising to us, it did heal!!! He does have a little tongue deformity, it hangs to the left instead of straight. He has become a great kitten and loves to play and now trusts us. If you are interested in giving this tuff guy a loving carefree home please email our Cat Coordinator at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or stop in Saturday from 11-2:30 no appointment needed. Mention that you heard about Arlo on the radio and receive $25 off his adoption fee.

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 Boba Fetch!

boba fetch

Boba Fetch is a 1 year old Pit bull mix who weighs 60lbs. Boba Fetch can be shy when meeting new people and would need a patient adopter to give him the love and patience he needs to adjust to his forever family. Once he gets to know you Boba is a very playful dog. He loves to run around the yard and plays with all toys, but tennis balls are his favorite! Boba Fetch also really enjoys the company of other dogs. So much so that he must be adopted into a home with a resident dog to help him feel more comfortable. Due to his shyness if there are children in the home they would need to be 13 or older.

If Boba Fetch sounds like the perfect dog for you, please give us a call as 330-487-0333 ext 226 to schedule an appointment to meet him today!
