Meet Kerfuffle...

IMG 0532

This sweet senior needs a home. Kerfuffle was brought in as a stray with Matted fur all the way to his skin. We had sent him to the vet to get this handsome lions cut. I don’t think he is fond of his new do but it has to feel better than all the matts he had. While at the vet we had senior bloodwork done on him. He has the early stages of Kidney Disease and requires a special diet and early testing. Please don’t let this scare you out of giving him a home he so desperately deserves. He can live many years with disease. He is a sweet boy that would reward you with purrs and cuddles. Kerfuffle is about 11 yrs old and would like a home to sleep instead of alone in his cage. If interested please email Tammy at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. let her know you saw him here!

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 Flower!

IMG 0533

She is a 1 year old Collie/Pit Bull mix who weighs about 43 pounds. Flower is an absolute sweetheart who loves attention! She is still a young pup and is very energetic and playful. Flower loves to plays with her toys and will play with you all day if she can! She is still learning her basic obedience commands, but is eager to please and ready to perform is there are treats involved. She does well with most dogs and absolutely loves to romp around with the other dogs in the yard. With a slow introduction she shows potential to live with another dog, but they better be ready to play! If Flower's forever home had children in it they would need to be ages 10 and up. Flower is a lively and goofy pup who can't wait to find her forever playmates.

If Flower looks like the perfect pup for you, give us a call at 234-212-9843 to learn more about her and schedule an appointment to come in and meet!
