The Mutt Strut Countdown Adoption Special

Due to an influx of felines, everyone at Lake Humane Society is working hard to care for all of their residents and find them new forever homes. While we count down the days until our 20th Annual Mutt Strut, we are offering some crazy discounts on cat and kitten adoption fees! 

Today kicks off the special and adoption fees are just $11! All of our cats and kittens have been spayed/neutered, received a physical examination from our vet, microchipped and are up-to-date on vaccines. These adoption fees are such a deal! Please help us find loving homes for our current residents so that we can help the hundreds of others waiting to enter our care!

Help Save the Homeless Animals of Lake County at Mutt Strut

Our 20th Annual Mutt Strut is just 3 weeks away. We are so excited to be celebrating 20 wonderful years of this event. Mutt Strut is our favorite fundraising event because we get to watch all of our supporters jump into action and raise money for the homeless animals in their community. It's truly inspiring to see people of all ages gather together after raising thousands of dollars for the animals in need.

It's not too late to start collecting donations for our shelter. No donation is too small and every dollar raised will go directly to the care of the animals here at LHS. Fundraisers have two options:

Once you've decided how you want to go about raising money, just start asking everyone you know to make a donation. Ask friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, whoever you can! You can ask them via e-mail or social media or face-to-face. The options are endless! To show our appreciation for our dedicated fundraisers, we are offering some awesome prizes. The more you raise, the more prizes you are eligible for. Our top fundraisers will also get additional gifts and will be announced at the event.

We hope you'll start raising money for our homeless animals and join us on August 23rd to celebrate all of your life-saving work! To learn more about Mutt Strut, click here!

Come on out to Petco (in Mentor) on Saturday, June 28th from 12:00-3:00pm for our adoption event. We are bringing along adoptable animals who are looking for loving forever homes. We have so many animals patiently awaiting a new family and home to call their own. 

Do you want to visit with all of our adoptables? You can also stop by our Adoption Center in Mentor located on Tyler Boulevard. We have dogs, cats and a variety of small animals all in need of homes. Our shelter is open from 12:00-5:00 Friday-Sunday!

If you are not able to adopt, but still want to help, you can stop by Petco and purchase a few items from our Wish List. We are always in need of supplies in order to care for our animals.
