Valentines Day Tips
According to poison control experts, they get an unusually high number of cases around Valentines Day. Many of these cases involve pets ingesting chocolate, lilies, which can be fatal to cats, and more. Most of us love Valentines Day. Let's make sure our pets can too. Keep them safe this weekend by keeping this list of items out of their reach. Not only will you be able to enjoy the holiday worry free, but your pet will be safe and just as happy. Learn More

If your pet has ingested a poisonous substance, contact the ASPCA 24-hour emergency hotline at 1-888-426-4435.

Featured Adoptables


Spartan
One-year-old Spartan enjoys playing "catch" because, despite our best efforts, he has not yet mastered the art of playing fetch. Spartan was surrendered to LHS in January because his owner could not care for him due to his declining health. This strikingly handsome boy is very active and will require regular exercise - a fenced in yard would be a plus, so that when he does learn fetch he can run around lots! He's always up for an adventure and would love an active owner. Spartan wants to be the spoiled only 4-legged child, but he will gladly share your home (and your love) with older children (15+ due to his size & energy level). If you think Spartan might be the perfect dog for you and your lifestyle, come visit him today!

To see a short video of Spartan playing "catch" during some one-on-one play time with one of our animal care attendants, click here.


Eliza
Super shy Eliza would rather hide under her bed than anything else. But what she really needs is someone with the love and patience to massage her cares away. Our TLC volunteers work with her here at the shelter, but this gorgeous gray would be happiest in a quiet home where she can learn to trust and relax. While she's awaiting her spaying, she has time to do that. In the meantime, feel free to come in and fill out an application for her adoption. 


Whiskers
Whiskers was brought to the shelter as a stray and after being out in the big, scary world all by himself, he has a little bit of confidence building to do. Although he is shy, some ear scratches and a few soothing words, is all he needs to relax a little. He is ready to start a new chapter in his life and would like to find his very own human who will make him feel safe and loved. So if you have room in your home (and heart) for a kitty that just needs a little extra TLC, visit Whiskers today!



Ruby
This beautiful girl is Ruby! This two-year-old Checkered Giant mix has been with us since August 2015 and she has been patiently waiting to find a new home! She is very calm and can be a bit shy so she could use some extra TLC to bring out her affectionate side. She came to the shelter because her previous owner was moving and could not take her along. Ruby would prefer a home with someone who has experience with rabbits and has plenty of time to give her the attention she needs.
Stop in and see her before someone else is lucky enough to adopt her!

Featured Adoptable


Scarlet
Scarlet found herself in our care after she was abandoned by her owner. Despite having her world turned upside down, this friendly girl is in good spirits. She is a 7-year-old, Siberian Husky mix with the heart of an angel. She loves to love you and is happy just being by your side. She also knows commands sit, down, and beg, and will gladly perform these tricks for some treats. Scarlet is looking for her second chance at happiness with a new family. Because of her easygoing and gentle peronsality, she would do well with children of all ages. Can you give Scarlet the forever home she deserves? 


Pistachio & Pecan
Two more of our featured pets are bonded pair Pistachio and Pecan. Sadly these 5-year-olds were brought into our care because their previous owner passed away. They are still a little scared and unsure of their surroundings, but after what they have been through, we don't blame them. Both kitties are very loving and even though Pecan likes to hog all of the attention, Pistachio can't imagine life without his sister. They are looking for someone willing to give them a home where they can feel safe and loved together. Visit the shelter and visit with these two wonderful kitties. They would be happy to see you. 


Jumper
Another deserving pet looking for her furever home is Jumper, a 2-year-old Rabbit. Jumper is quite curious and friendly, and enjoys being held. After living out in the world as a stray, she is now hoping to find a new home with someone who has experience with Rabbits, who will make her feel safe and loved. 

Didn't quite see what you're looking for? No worries, there is plenty more where they came from!

Help Your Community Cats!

Ways You Can Help
With temperatures in Lake County often reaching close to (or below) freezing during the winter months, any pets left outside are susceptible to frostbite and hypothermia. So, in order to give stray and feral cats a little help this winter, here are some simple and inexpensive tips for building shelters for community cats.

Featured Adoptables


Precious
Say hello to super senior, 14-year-old Precious! This little dog would like to remind everyone that she is not old, she is vintage and vintage is in these days. Precious, even though she has lost her eyesight, still enjoys exploring her surroundings and taking long lap naps. Sadly, this sweet lady was brought to us because her beloved owner passed away. She is now looking for a calm, relaxing, forever retirement home where she can be the perfect lap dog for someone special. 


Doodles
Another featured senior is 8-year-old Doodles. She is a very large (1.3 lbs to be exact), but very beautiful girl who loves to just hang out and relax in your lap. This adorable couch potato was surrendered to LHS because her owner did not have the time to give her the attention she needs. She is now looking for a furever retirement home where she can get the one-on-one love and affection she has been craving for so long. Come see her today! She just might be your next best friend.


Helena
This adorable, little girl is Helena. Helena was born in the shelter after her mom was surrendered to us. She is now 4 months old and full of spunk. She can be a little shy with new people, but bring out her favorite toy and it is on! She loves to play and will pretty much chase anything that moves. So if your looking for a young kitty who will entertain you for hours on end, Helena is your gal! Visit her at Petco across from the Great Lake Mall in Mentor.


Charlotte
Meet 10-month-old Charlotte! She is friendly and affectionate, but has become quite used to hanging out under her box in our cat community room. Even though she acts like she wants to hide, Charlotte is very playful and sweet. She is young and after being brought to LHS after being abandoned by her owner, she is ready to find a new forever home with a loving, new family who will always keep her safe. Can you give Charlotte the home she deserves?
