NOTICE: Dog Side Closed
In light of the dog respiratory illness that is going around shelters in the Ohio area, we have decided to close the dog side to the public until further notice. Our main concern is for the health of the dogs at our shelter and also preventing the spread of disease to any dogs outside the shelter. Thanks for your understanding.
Not Accepting New Cats or Kittens
We are currently not accepting any new cats or kittens. We will be offering limited cat adoptions by appointment only. With any questions, or to set up an adoption appointment, please email email@example.com.
It’s Raining Kittens
Every year, Parma Animal Shelter takes in approximately 300 kittens. We provide medical care and shelter until each kitten finds his or her furever home. Costs associated with the intake, medical care, and sheltering of one healthy kitten can total $150 or more. YOU can help by sponsoring a kitten, ordering from our Amazon kitten WISH LIST, or by purchasing KMR, bottles, blankets, and toys and bringing them to the shelter at 6260 State Rd. in Parma, OH.
FOSTER TO ADOPT
Looking to bring home a new furry friend? Foster to adopt is a great way to go!
When you foster to adopt we will set you up with all you need to bring home a new pet. All you need to do is give them a loving, safe home and keep their scheduled vet appointments! We will work with you to make sure the appointments fit into your busy schedules.

Cooper is a great dog and his new doggie mom reached out to a trainer to help him get settled in his new home! Our dogs are looking for committed adopters who understand that training may be something that will be needed to help them adjust to their new home. This adopter thought she made a mistake, but she asked for help and in three weeks time proved that committed adopters CAN and DO make progress with their dogs, and they form quick bonds in doing so!
