Libby

Trudy was rescued in June 2019 after she was found as a stray in need of veterinary care. Her skin was painful, irritated, and itchy as a result of an infection that had spread along her back and legs. Trudy was miserable and desperately needed our help.

At our shelter, Trudy was examined by our veterinarian and prescribed medications and weekly baths to treat her ailment. Trudy also enjoyed lots of love and attention from our staff and volunteers as she recovered! Soon enough, Trudy was healed and ready for the next step - adoption!

In early August, Trudy made her ...

In November 2018, HSSC’s Humane Officers rescued Wiggles from a vacant home after she had been heartlessly abandoned by her previous owner with no food or water. Wiggles was lucky to survive.

A quick recovery at our facility under the expertise of our veterinary team and Wiggles was soon adopted into a loving, safe forever home! Her new family shared with us the following update and photos of Wiggles, who is now named Lola!

Leah, formerly known as Eileen, was abandoned with her five young kittens and several other cats and kittens in a rental home when her owners moved out. Luckily, the cats and kittens were discovered by the landlord but were suffering with no access to food or water. He quickly realized the seriousness of the situation and contacted our Humane Officers for help.

Bonzo

In early 2018, HSSC rescued a dog, a victim of neglect, who's condition was so severe that he almost didn't make it.

Bonzo, as he would be named at the shelter, had a horrific neck injury that had been caused by a tight collar that had irritated and cut through his skin. Our care team also discovered that Bonzo was fighting advanced heartworm disease, a dangerous infection that can lead to fatal health complications. It took Bonzo three months to recover. During the entire process, Bonzo was brave, playful, and inspiringly resilient.

Today, we are thrilled to report ...

Arra

Animal abandonment is a crime. Our pets rely upon us to feed, shelter, and love them, yet some discard them with little care for their wellbeing.

Officer Harland responded to a report from a caring and observant citizen who had noticed that Arra, as we would later name this sweet Boxer mix, was in need of help. On the scene, Officer Harland found Arra tied to a porch by a rope, sitting listlessly with little hope left in her eyes. Her owners had simply packed up their belongings and left their dog behind. Even though she was found emaciated and ...

Beebop

Beebop survived an unthinkable act of animal cruelty.

Community members called our Humane Officers after they had reportedly witnessed a cat heartlessly thrown from the window of a moving car near Tallmadge, Ohio, leaving the cat suffering from traumatic injuries and terribly frightened. As the witnesses looked after Beebop, as he would be later named, our Humane Officers responded to the scene. The Officers provided emergency first aid and quickly transported him to the shelter for complete emergency veterinary care he needed to survive.

Upon examination, our veterinarian determined that Beebop had suffered a severe injury to his left eye ...

Snow

Snow’s life has been transformed since the day he was rescued by the Humane Society of Summit County. When we first met him earlier this year, Snow was suffering at the hands of a neglectful, abusive owner. Snow was living in a nightmare.

An extensive lack of basic grooming left Snow’s fur very severely matted, causing his eyes to be tangled shut. His body was covered in immensely painful wounds, scabs, and ulcers as his fur pulled tighter and tighter with time. The mats had trapped dangerous bacteria and caused infections in his eyes and skin. Snow’s ...

Ceasar

Ceasar was rescued by Humane Officers after he was found abandoned by his previous owners. He found his forever home in February 2018 and his adopters shared the following update:

“My husband and I adopted Ceasar and we couldn’t be more in love. He now has two siblings, a brother and a sister. The other dogs are quite a bit older than Ceasar, but he keeps up and even shows them a few things about being active. Ceasar is the perfect addition to our family. Thank you!”

Leroy Brown

Leroy Brown is one of those dogs you remember forever.

Scared, underweight, and a victim of cruelty, Leroy Brown was rescued by Humane Officers with life-threatening health problems. He is a senior-aged Boxer/Shepherd mix who had previously undergone a leg amputation. On top of it all, he was suffering from a heartworm infection.

While he recovered in our care, Leroy's sweet and gentle demeanor made him easy to love and impossible to forget. The veterinarian, staff, and volunteers poured their hearts into his recovery and give the same dedicated care to thousands of dogs, cats, and small animals ...

Quincy and Benji

Quincy and Benji are unlikely best friends, but they share a strong bond having both been rescued by HSSC’s Humane Officers from dire circumstances and then adopted together.

In 2015, when Quincy was just a teeny, helpless kitten, he was rescued by our Humane Officers. Quincy was in need of emergency veterinary care as he was suffering from a painful and life-threatening bacterial infection. With antibiotic medications and delicate care from staff and volunteers, Quincy recovered and became the happy, bouncy, playful kitten he was meant to be. Quincy waited just a short time before he won over the ...
