Pet Adoption Events in Chesterton, IN

Here at Lake Shore Ford, we are honored to sponsor a cage at Lakeshore Paws in Valparaiso, IN.  By sponsoring a cage, we are making sure that these dogs have a safe, temporary home until they find their fur-ever home.

Each sponsored dog can be found right here and on our Lake Shore Ford Facebook page. We also occasionally host adoption events at our dealership, so you can find all dates and information on that here as well.

If you want to see all the dogs available for adoption and to learn more on how you can volunteer at Lakeshore Paws, you can check out their website.

Hello! My name is Punky (Female) and this is my brother (and best friend!) Boo (male).

We are a bonded pair of seniors that would love to find a home together if it all possible.  We have gone through a lot together and would like the opportunity to continue to be the tag team duo we have always been.

You see, we wound up in the shelter system because we lost our owner. He was such a nice, loving, and caring man. We really do miss him...he left us behind with this wife. She loved us too, but was not able to take care of us the way she knew her husband would want. So, with a broken heart, she gave us up.

She promised that someone would come along and rescue us so tha we could continue to be loved and cared for the way her husband use to. We sure hope that is true...

We grew up together, lost our owner together, and have gone to two shelters together. Sometimes when we are feeling really sad and scared, we'll curl up on the same dog bed and snuggle for a little while. It sure helps having a buddy to lean on during these hard times.

If we could stay together, we promise we will be nothing short of a blessing to our new family/owner. We are potty trained, friendly, know basic commands, and are so loving. My brother is a big guy, but is a total softie and i am so sweet and trusting! We really would make a family very happy.

We're just hoping someone is willing to open up their heart and home to us. We'd be so grateful to live out our golden years together...the way our dad would have wanted.


Hello, I am Lilly.  I am a 5-year-old female hound mix. I was originally found as a stray and am a sweet dog. I like people of all ages, including respectful children. I also appear to do with other friendly dogs and cats!   I am a medium size girl, so I won't take up much room other than in your heart.  Come meet me today!

Hello, I am Winston.  I am a 1-year-old male Vizsla mix.  I am a very active guy and a very active breed. I will be happiest in an active home where I get lots of attention and get out for lots of walks, runs and play. I am also looking forward to undergoing training, so I fulfill my potential and grow into the great dog I know I am. I do well with all people but am too much dog for young and shy children, and those under the age of 10. I am also not a big fan of cats. Come meet me today and fall in love yourself. 


Hello, I'm Hope!  I am a very sweet 2-year-old female Bulldog mix.  I had been living on the streets, until some caring people finally caught up with me and rescued me.  Turns out I am just the sweetest girl.  I actually cry with affection when snuggling and yelp with excitement when playing.

I will be great with children 12 and older and prefer people to other dogs. I appear to be good with cats and will do best in an active home where I can get plenty of exercise, loving and training.  I just had a litter of puppies and am now looking fo ra forever home of my own. I weigh 56 pounds.


Hello, I am Desi. I am a very friendly 2-year-old male Dalmatian mix. I am a great all-around dog, who will fit in great with most homes. I appear to do well with other friendly dogs, but no cats please. I am fun and will do best in an active home. I am hearing impaired or possibly deaf, but that does not get me down an dis easily addressed with a little education on behalf of my new home. I am a medium-size dog.


 I am a sweet, playful girl who is happy-go-lucky and full of life.  I love going to events and meeting new people. I especially low when those new people give me lots and lots of belly rubs!

I would do best in a home with children 15 years or older and will need to be the only fur baby in my new home. I know sit, down, and shake and am very treat motivated --which makes learning new tricks a lot more fun.
