Featured Adoptables



Alla
Alla and 67 other neglected pets entered our care due to 3 hoarding cases in Lake County. Some of these animals required more medical treatment and attention, and in Alla's case, that treatment includes medicated baths multiple times a week to help heal her skin. Despite her previous situation and having to go through treatment, Alla has been patient and sweet through it all. This 8-year-old is in good spirits and insists on taking her tennis ball with her where ever she goes. She is a special soul and we believe know matter who looks at her, they can just see it in her eyes. Visit this wonderful girl at LHS and see her for yourself. You won’t regret it!


Carly
This beauty is Carly. Carly is considered, by our volunteers and staff, as a top-notch snuggler. She is very affectionate, loving, and is at her happiest when she is as close to you as she can possibly get. Carly was surrendered into our care as a stray by the Good Samaritan who found her. Now, after being out in the world all alone, she is ready to find a new home where she will feel safe and loved, and treated like a treasured member of the family. Can you give Carly the furever home she deserves? She is waiting! Carly is still waiting to be fixed, but is now accepting applications.



Boots
This handsome, friendly boy is 1-year-old Boots. He is very playful, affectionate, and loving. Boots was surrendered to us by his previous owner because they had too many animals. He now hopes to find a furever home where he will get the one-on-one love and attention he never had, but always desereved. So pay Boots a visit. He just might be the next great addition to your family! Boots is still waiting to be fixed, but is now accepting applications.



Sophia
This gorgeous little girl is Sophia. Sophia came to LHS as a feral stray with her sister Stella and her brother Sam. These youngsters were terrified, but quickly learned we are not gong to hurt them. Sophia and her siblings spent some time in a foster home where they were given much love, TLC, and socializing to build up their confidence in people. Sophia is now a loving cuddler with a motor that runs non-stop. She is still easily startled, however, and is going to be slow to adjust to the new furever home she hopes to soon find. So if you believe you have the time, patience and room in your heart (and home) for this shy young lady, visit her at LHS today! 

Don't quite see what you are looking for? No worries! There is plenty more where they came from.

May is National Foster Care Month


In honor of #NationalFosterCareMonth, we would like to give a special shout out to all of our wonderful and dedicated fosters. While fostering kittens and puppies can be a lot of fun, it also requires a lot of time and hard work. Whether our fosters are waking up every 3 hours to bottle feed some motherless babies, taking care of an injured dog or cat needing some extra love or medication, or offering the quiet and comfort of their home to a senior pet nearing the end of their life, our fosters play a huge role in helping us save thousands of lives every year. Their kindness, dedication, and passion for what they do is truly amazing and has inspired many to follow in their foot steps. So to our many foster out there, we truly do not know what we would do without you and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all that you do. We could not continue our lifesaving work without you!

Are you interested in joining our team? Apply to be a volunteer today! Learn More

Featured Adoptables



Alice
This gorgeous girl is 5-year-old Alice, a Siberian Husky mix. Alice is very sweet, and very laid back. She is a true cuddle bug and is at her happiest right by your side. Alice also enjoys going on long walks to display her excellent leash manners, but she is great at showing her spunk during play time. Unfortunately, Alice's previous owners were forced to surrender her to LHS because they were moving and could not take her along. Alice now hopes to find a true forever home where she will be treated like a treasured member of the family. Come see Alice today. You won't regret it!


Slick
This handsome, young kitty is one-year-old Slick. He is very affectionate, enjoys being petted, and loves to give hugs! He is also very playful so when it's play time, he will be the first one there to chase any toy brave enough to come near him! Slick came to the shelter because his previous owner could no longer take care of him. Slick is looking for a furever home with a family who has as much love to give as he does. Come see Slick today. He just might be the next great addition to your family!



Tinkerbelle
This small (5 lbs), beautiful white kitty is 1-year-old Tinkerbelle! She is very calm and shy, but with a little attention and petting, her braver side will surely appear. Tinkerbelle came to the shelter because her previous owner had too many animals. She is now hoping to find a furever home where she will receive the one-on-one attention she never had, but surely deserves. So if you have room in your home (and heart) for a shy, sweet kitty who would appreciate lots of TLC, Tinkerbelle is your girl!



Sherman
Say hello to little Sherman! This extremely cute guinea pig is a little shy with new people, but once held, he just melts in your hands. Sherman was surrendered to LHS because his previous owner was moving and could not take him along. He now hopes to find a furever home, so if you are looking to add a sweet little piggie to your life, just ask for Sherman!
