Love-a-stray Dog Division - Avon Lake Pet Shelter

Love-a-stray Dog Division

Love-A-Stray is a non-profit, all volunteer, no-kill organization dedicated to helping homeless animals. Since Love-A-Stray doesn't have a "physical" shelter and our animals are housed in foster homes, we do not have some of the usual operating expenses that would be required for a shelter. Consequently, adoption fees, fundraising efforts, and donations go directly to a great cause - the animals! Our four-fold mission is to: 1. Lessen pet overpopulation by sterilizing adoptable animals and employing aggressive low-cost spay/neuter programs in an effort to provide financial assistance for families who otherwise would not be able to sterilize their pet. 2. Offer housing for unwanted, homeless animals and when necessary, provide medical treatment including emergency veterinary care. 3. Value the life of all rescue animals by providing innovative behavior rehabilitation, when applicable, and placing them from nurturing foster families into loving, compatible, permanent homes. 4. Educate the public on the importance of being an advocate for animals emphasizing humane treatment and sterilization. Donations are greatly appreciated and put towards a very good cause! We need a variety of items to help care for the rescue animals. No donation is too small.

Adoption Process

Love-A-Stray members across Northern Ohio take in and rescue homeless puppies and dogs and prepare them for adoption into loving permanent homes. Our Love-A-Stray volunteers are always working and updating information about our rescued dogs in foster homes who need permanent homes. Love-A-Stray is a non-profit all volunteer rescue group with most of our volunteers also having full time jobs, so we do the best we can to answer all inquires as soon as possible. When we first hear from you, we will ask you some basic questions. You'll tell us who you are, where you live, what you know and don't know about the particular breed of dog you are interested in, and whether you already have other pets. We will ask you to complete an adoption application to ensure we can find your perfect match. Applications can be requested by emailing the adoption coordinator listed for the puppy or dog you are interested in or filling out the online application. The application will be forwarded to the dog coordinator best able to answer questions and to assist you with the adoption process.
