"We're Expecting" Kitten Shower

Spring is officially here and we’re expecting kittens. With spring comes warmer weather and with warm weather comes litters of kittens… LOTS of litters of kittens. Here at Lake Humane Society, we are trying to get prepared for “kitten season” which runs throughout spring and summer. We rely on our dedicated foster families to take these kittens into their homes until they are ready for adoption. Many of our foster families help continuously by taking in new litters as often as they can. Please participate in our "Kitten Shower" and help us stock up on much-needed supplies for our foster families!

These kittens are happy and healthy in their cozy foster home!

We are reaching out to our community to help us care for these animals. We are seeking donations so that we can stock up on necessary supplies for our foster program. We provide our foster homes with all of the supplies they will need while fostering our animals. As part of our kitten shower, we have made up a small “registry” with items we need.

If you would like to help, please consider donating:

  • Kitten Formula (KMR Milk Replacer) 
  • Kitten Bottles 
  • Cat Litter 
  • Food Storage Containers w/ Lids (cereal container size) 
  • Microwavable Heat Pads 
  • Canned Cat/Kitten Food (Pate) 
  • Gift Cards to Local Pet Stores 
Are you interested in helping even more? Become a foster family for Lake Humane Society. The shelter is always in need of new foster families who are willing to care for animals in need of some extra TLC. Fostering kittens and mom cats is only part of the program. LHS also depends on foster families to care for dogs and cats that are recovering from an injury or surgery and animals with special needs as well.

For more information on becoming a foster and helping to save lives, visit our website. You can also call the shelter at (440) 951-6122 and speak with a member of our Foster Team. Click here to get started on your Foster Application.

The Angel Fund At Work

Odin is a 7-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix. He was surrendered to Lake Humane Society back in September of 2013 because his previous owner could no longer keep him. When Odin came to LHS he was not in the best of shape. He was thin and clearly had some sort of skin issue. While in our care the LHS staff, with the support of our donors, has gone to great lengths to figure out what was causing Odin’s condition.

Odin is one of the latest recipients of The Angel Fund. The Angel Fund is a separate savings account, which is used to pay for surgeries, treatments and other medical bills for animals in serious need of immediate medical attention. Generous donors make contributions to be used specifically in these cases. Without the help of our donors, we would not be able to care for these animals that need us the most. To learn more about The Angel Fund, click here!

Odin was taken to a local dermatologist and they suspected that Odin has color dilution alopecia and potentially an allergy. Color dilution alopecia is a genetic skin disorder associated with abnormal pigment distribution in hair shafts. Affected dogs are normal at birth but usually begin losing hair between six months and two years of age.  Color dilution alopecia typically causes dry, flaky skin, which can also be itchy.  Color dilution alopecia is chronic and irreversible, but the prognosis is good. It is a cosmetic problem that does not affect the dog’s quality of life.


After 3 months of the medication, Dr. Bednarik, Lake Humane Society’s veterinarian, has noticed improvements in Odin’s skin. Odin has also put on some weight since his treatment started. Odin's medications will most likely be life-long and he requires a specific diet.

While this may seem like quite the undertaking, Odin will pay his family back with tons of love. He truly is a sweetheart and he deserves a loving forever home just as much as any other dog. Odin just wants a person, and a home, to call his own. Odin is available for adoption at Lake Humane Society, but he is also a candidate for foster as we believe a home environment would suit him better while he is on his medication. Odin requires a home without any cats or small animals.

If you think Odin is the dog for you, please contact us at (440) 951-6122.

Not in the position to adopt or foster Odin, but still want to help? Make a donation to go directly towards Odin continued medical care. Click here to donate now!
