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 ...

Hector

Sweet Hector had quite the journey – literally. This handsome kitty was abandoned in a vehicle that had been sold in Toledo and transported by freight to the Akron area in the middle of winter. Luckily, Hector survived his very frightening ordeal and was found by a kind man who knew exactly who could help. In our care, Hector took some time to trust us and gain a bit of weight, but once he did, he was as sweet as could be! Today, Hector lives safe and sound with his new adoptive family. They recently shared the following update:

“I am ...

Arman

Arman was rescued by our Humane Officers after he was abandoned in an apartment by his previous owner. He certainly doesn’t have anything to worry about now. He hit the kitty jackpot! This is what his new Mom had to say:

“We received a nice note thanking us for adopting Arman. He is such a sweet cat. Right now he is on the table with his head in my left hand as I type this.

We wanted a pal for our orange tabby, Tommy, and are they pals!!! They play together and often sleep together. And get into trouble ...

Katrina was rescued as a sick kitten along with her littermates and multiple adult cats. She was treated for her upper respiratory infection while in a loving foster home. Once better, she was quickly adopted. Here’s what her new Mom had to say:

Thank you for an amazing adoption experience, and we have been ...

Sadie and Samantha

Sadie was rescued from an unwanted litter along with her mother and siblings. Venus was rescued as an injured stray. We LOVE our repeat adopters! Look how happy these two are! Here’s what their new Mom had to say:

“We adopted Sadie and she was desperately in need of a playmate so we adopted Venus (we renamed her Samantha) the following January. About a year later, we moved to a larger property where they have over an acre to run, play, chase chipmunks and Samantha loves to bask in the sun. They are wonderful together and I wanted to ...

Violet was rescued at a young age along with her mother and siblings. They lived in a loving foster home while they grew big and strong and received all the medical care they needed. Once spayed, little Violet didn't wait long for her forever home! Her new Mom sent this adorable update:

"My husband and I adopted a little kitten about 2 weeks ago. At the time of adoption her name was Violet. When we got home we let her look around and get used to her new home. She did so with no trouble and quickly found her ...

Blaze

Little Henry, FKA Blaze, and six of his siblings were rescued by our Humane Officer at the beginning of November after they were found in shocking condition. Each of them, at the fragile age of two months, were severely malnourished and crawling with fleas.

Once safely at our shelter, the litter was thoroughly examined and given high calorie puppy food, which was scarfed down with excitement. The seven puppies were also treated for their fleas and given appropriate vaccinations to protect them from disease.

Within a few weeks, the puppies had transformed into healthy, happy, wiggly babes ready for their ...
