Featured Adoptables

Say hello to Cookie! This adorable male Guinea Pig is a little shy, but once held, he relaxes and wants nothing more than to enjoy your company. Cookie was brought to us because his previous owner could no longer care for him. He is now looking to find a furever home where he will get all the attention he deserves. So if you are looking to add a sweet, little piggie to your life, just ask for Cookie! 

Meet Garfinkle! This friendly and affectionate 2-year-old was brought to us because his owner's health made caring for him very hard. This sweet boy can be independent but also very playful and he just loves his toys! He also loves being groomed. Garfinkle is looking for a new home where he can enjoy all his favorite things. Can you give him the perfect forever home?

This handsome man is 2-year-old Jack. Jack is very affectionate, loves to explore and is always up for a good conversation, making this talkative cat great company no matter what you are doing. Jack was surrendered to LHS because of his owner's declining health. This well-rounded, friendly cat would make the perfect pet for anyone willing to open their heart and home. Stop in and see if Jack could be your new furry, four-legged companion!

Is this Spanky's dog, or what!? R. B. would fit right in with the Little Rascals. With his friendly, calm, and laid back personality he would make the perfect pet for any family. He is also housebroken and pending a visit, he could be a good fit for a family with other dogs too! R.B. is gentle and loving but can be a bit needy at times. He was brought to the shelter because his previous owner was moving and could not take him along. This wonderful senior deserves another chance to be part of something great - your family! Remember, old men need loving too! Stop in and see R.B.!

Help Fight Animal Abuse and Cruelty

In order to help us continue to defend and protect the pets in need, we need your support. Our Humane Investigations Department is a truly invaluable service that we provide the community and we cannot continue to do so without your support. Lake Humane Society does not receive government, state or county funding for any of the programs or services we provide to the community. We need your continued support in order to remain the voice for these animals in need.

Lake Humane Society is proud to provide the Lake County community with a Humane Investigations Department. Our Humane Agent is responsible for ensuring that all animals in Lake County receive proper care and kindness. Allegations of abuse and neglect are investigated weekly during her part-time shift. LHS is committed to being a voice and protector of the animals in need. 

Lake Humane Society would like to provide our Humane Agent with new equipment and supplies so that she can do her job effectively and safely when animals are frightened and dangerous. This is where you come in.

LHS is a private, non-profit organization that runs solely on donations. We do not receive government or state funding, nor are we funded or operated by any national humane organizations. All of our programs and services, including Humane Investigations, are made possible through your generous donations.

We are raising funds to purchase safety equipment, dangerous animal handling supplies and other equipment needed to care for animals taken in through Investigations for our agent and staff, who deal with frighten, injured and aggressive animals daily. Your donations will help make this possible! 

Please donate today and watch your contribution be immediately put to use within our community. We can't do this without you.

Meet Caroline! This gorgeous lady is quiet and a bit shy but her world was turned upside down when her previous owner passed away in April. As you can imagine, it may take her a little time to adjust. This sweet kitty is hoping to find her new furever home where she will get the one-on-one love and attention she truly misses. Caroline would do best in a home with children over the age of 10 as well as with other feline siblings (pending a visit). So if you are that special someone with lots of love and patience, Caroline is looking for someone who can turn her world right-side up again!

This adorable face belongs to 11-year-old Shannon. Shannon is a Yorkshire Terrier mix who was surrendered to us because the health of his owner kept him from giving him all the proper care and attention he needs. This young hearted senior still has lots of energy, love and affection left in him. So stop on by LHS and say hello to Shannon. You just might be the furever retirement home he has been looking for! 

We'd like to introduce you all to Skid! Skid was recently surrendered to us. He is now under our care and as much as we have enjoyed his company, we would love for him to find a new home with an experienced pig owner. If you'd like more information, please contact us at (440) 951-6122 or visit us! 

This pretty lady is Victoria, an American Pitbull/Lab mix. This energetic girl loves to play and really appreciates the long walks our staff and volunteers take her on. Victoria was brought to us as a stray only a couple weeks ago. She has quickly adjusted and is more than ready to find that perfect furever home where she can continue to grow, play and explore her world. Is she the perfect pet for you? Stop by LHS and pay her a visit!
