Parma Animal Shelter Operation
The Parma Animal Shelter is run by volunteers for the stray and abandoned animals of the City of Parma. Volunteers dedicate their time to tasks such as walking the dogs, cleaning cages for the dogs and cats, feeding the animals, and giving them love. We also have volunteers that foster some of our animals in their home. We DO NOT participate in Community Service work programs. Volunteers cannot accept dropped off pets.
