Adoption News

Featured Dogs:

Chi Chi, Coco, and Sophie
                    Chi Chi
Volunteer Janet spending time with the three Chis.
It's a Chihuahua invasion. These three cuties came in last week. They still have some vet appointments but will be ready for adoption very soon. Chi Chi is an 8 year old male who arrived with an injured eye. He was scared and snarky at first but is warming up to people. Coco is a 6 year old male who cries but responds well to comforting. Sophie, also 6, was originally cautious about being picked up but now she and Coco both beg for it.

If you're interested in adopting any or all of these pups, get your application in.

Featured Cats:

Marvel, Daisy, and Asher
Marvel was among about 19 kittens from the same site. He had surgery to clean out grubs and abscesses. He is about three months old now and ready to be adopted.
Daisy is also three months old and a little peanut. But she thinks she’s the biggest of all. And the other kittens twice her size don’t mess with whatever toy she’s playing with.
Asher is around three months also. A sweet boy.  Getting his picture was difficult because he loves to play and doesn’t want to sit still. So you have to get it when he’s too tuckered out to play anymore. Loves to roughhouse with his siblings.

15 cats and 5 dogs

A Message from the Board

        Lakeshore Humane Society is an independent, non profit, totally volunteer organization. We get no outside funding but exist solely on generous donations and volunteer-run fundraisers.
        Monetary donations are gratefully accepted. Because all our dogs and cats are spayed or neutered and vaccinated before adoption, our veterinary bills are one of our biggest expenses. Many times the animals that come to us have additional medical needs and require special care beyond regular care which add to our expenses.
        In addition to veterinary costs, we have the normal expenses of maintaining our Adoption Center, such as utilities and insurance. While we are very grateful to Nestle Purina for donations of cat and dog food and treats, sometimes a dog or cat needs special food which we must purchase. Donations of food, treats, litter and xylitol-free peanut butter are always welcome. Nothing goes to waste. If we can’t use something, we share it with others such as the Pet Pantry.

        Cleaning supplies are always needed. Items such as bleach, HE laundry detergent, paper towels and Dawn blue dish detergent are in great demand. General cleaning supplies are also needed on a regular basis. Toilet paper, tissues, window cleaner, disinfectant wipes, floor cleaner, sponges, hand soaps and sanitizers, and garbage bags are some of the supplies needed for maintaining our Adoption Center. Office supplies such as printer paper, pens, pocket folders, scotch tape, and index cards are regularly used.
        In our effort to be environmentally friendly, we try to employ cloth towels in our cleaning and, of course, baths. Donations of used towels in good condition as well as fleece blankets are always welcome.
        We are extremely grateful for all donations of any kind and wish to thank our animal loving community.
