Learn More About Pet Adoption in Chesterton, IN

We LOVE animals at Lake Shore Toyota, and are honored to sponsor dogs at Lakeshore Paws in Valparaiso, IN.  By sponsoring a dog, we are helping to ensure that they 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 Toyota Facebook Page.  Also, when we host adoption events at our dealership, this is where you can find dates, times, photos and all the other information you need.


If you want to see all the dogs available for adoption and/or learn more on how you can volunteer at Lakeshore Paws, you can check out their website at https://www.lakeshorepaws.org/


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!

Have questions about me? Contact Lakeshore PAWS at 219-476-PAWS (7297) or info@lakeshorePAWS.org. 



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 for a 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.
