Help Us Give Queenie the Second Chance She Deserves


We'd like you all to meet Queenie. She is a sweet and loving 6-month-old Chihuahua mix. Queenie was brought to our shelter on Monday night (5/18), after a Good Samaritan found her in a cage in the restroom at Lake Erie Bluffs in Perry. We immediately knew something was not right with Queenie and suspected mange. Our veterinarian confirmed that Queenie has demodectic mange (commonly known as demodex) along with a secondary bacterial infection of the skin. This innocent pup has started her treatment and is on the road to recovery. 


Why are we sharing this you might ask? We need your help. We are currently caring for hundreds of injured, abused and unwanted animals, and with Queenie's need of more extensive medical attention and care, the expenses will pile up rather quickly. Can you make a donation to our Angel Fund and help us give animals, like Queenie, the extra care, medication and love they so desperately need? Your donation, no matter the size, will help us provide care to voiceless animals like Queenie.

Please donate now using our online donation form. When processing your donation, please select "The Angel Fund" under the Program section of the form. ALL donations made to our Angel Fund will cover Queenie's care. If we are able to raise even more than what is needed for Queenie, those donations will be put into our Angel Fund savings account and saved for the next animal in serious need.

Another way you can help is by identifying this dog and/or her previous owner(s). If you have any information regarding Queenie's previous owner, please contact our Humane Agent, Leanne, at (440) 951-6122, extension 105. All reports remain anonymous. While we understand that some extenuating circumstances may make it difficult for owners to keep their pets, it is very important that the proper steps be taken to ensure the animal is safe and that a responsible, loving family is found for the unwanted animal. Abandoning a scared, confused animal is never the answer. Please SHARE this post and help us find the owner who is responsible.

*Please Note: We are not accepting adoption applications for Queenie at this time. If you are interested in adopting Queenie, please follow our posts as we update our supporters on her progress. Once Queenie is healthy and available for adoption, we will then accept applications. Thank you for understanding.*

We Have Someone Special For You To Meet


video

This gorgeous girl is Star. Star is a 5-year-old Pit Bull mix available for adoption here at LHS. She has been with us for nearly 5 months now and we want nothing more than to find her the perfect home. Star is such a sweetheart. She loves to cuddle and be petted. She suffers from separation anxiety, so she would thrive in a home where her family is around her as much as possible.
In addition to being a top notch snuggler, Star loves to play. She loves her squeaky toys and often times when you walk past her kennel she is standing there with a toy in her mouth just waiting for someone to play with her. Star is housebroken and she would like a home where she is the spoiled only four-legged child. While we know many households like to have more than one pet, Star has more than enough love, kisses and snuggles to go around. As for human children, Star would get along great with kids over the age of 5. Of course, we do require that all members of the household visit a pet before adoption to ensure he/she is the right fit for their family.
Yesterday, in order to give Star a much-needed break from the kennel she has called "home" for the last 5 months, our Marketing Department enlisted her as their "assistant" for the day. As you can see, Star was definitely thrilled! We would love to give Star a more permanent break from the kennel. We are seeking either an adopter for Star, or someone who would be willing to foster her. For more information, please call (440) 951-6122.
This gentle, loving, friendly, playful and somewhat needy girl has been waiting long enough… help us find her a forever home. Please share this adorable video with everyone you know.
Can't adopt Star, but still want to help? Make a donation today and help us continue to save lives: http://bit.ly/1y5Geam

Join LHS For A FREE Informational Presentation

We are hosting an informational presentation on Monday, May 18th at Mentor Public Library from 12:30-1:30PM. The presentation will focus on Ohio’s state and city animal cruelty laws that relate to shelter and tethering. Our presenters include DanaMarie Pannella, Associate Attorney at Holland & Muirden Attorneys at Law and Vicki Deisner, Midwest Legislative Director of the ASPCA.

This FREE presentation is open to the public and lunch will be provided to all guests. Guests are required to RSVP by May 17th in order to attend. Please RSVP to LPike@lakehumane.org. Seating is limited and the presentation is booking fast!



"Sheltering and tethering ordinances work hand-in-hand to create a better understanding of humane treatment towards animals and, ultimately, provide greater protections for companion animals living outside and the humans and animals that may come in contact with them. The implementation of these laws benefits our communities, law enforcement, and animals. We will discuss how law enforcement agencies and citizens can work with their own cities to adopt similar laws that promote animal protection beyond what state code provides." - DanaMarie Pannella

We hope you will join us at this presentation and continue to support our efforts to defend and protect the animals of Lake County.
