March/April Shelter Update

We are very excited to announce we will be opening our doors again, NO FOOLING! April 1st
Public hours will be 5-7 PM every day + 10 AM – 12 PM on Saturdays and Sundays.

Starting on April 1st, we will be changing how we do cat adoptions!

  • You will be able to visit the shelter to adopt without an appointment!
  • We will still require visitors to fill out an adoption application and receive approval before adopting.
  • Responses to applications will be sent from via email within 72 hours of submission.
  • Your approval email will detail any information you need to know for adoption.
  • We strongly suggest filling out an application before visiting with our cats, otherwise you will have to wait for your application to be reviewed and come back at a later date to adopt.
  • We cannot guarantee that a specific cat or kitten will be available during your visit, and we will not be putting holds on kittens.

We would like to thank everyone who has been supporting our shelter with donations to our fundraising campaigns.  We’ve made it easier to donate using a credit card, Paypal or by mail.    We are also grateful to those who continually share our social media posts and help us find homes for our guests.   For those generous people who are willing to donate from our wish list, we have made updates!  You can donate through Amazon or Chewy wish lists too. For those of you who use Fresh Step litter, every point you donate will help us buy litter for our foster kitties.  It’s easy to create an account and upload a picture of your receipt.

We are also looking for volunteers so if you can help, please submit an application.  We are looking for volunteers to help staff our front desk.  Duties include answering phones, greeting the public, clerical work and must be familiar with computers.  Other opportunities are cleaning crew day shifts, dog walkers, cat care volunteers and putting together our newsletter with Constant Contact.

Our Calendar of Events this year will also include a Scentsy Fundraiser, March Muttness, a Spring/Easter bake sale, and a Golf Outing at Ridgewood Golf Course in June. Watch for more events in this space!

We have many kitties waiting to come into the shelter from foster care.  If you are interested in becoming a foster home, please contact us   We are only accepting city of Parma strays brought to us by our Animal Control Officer at this time but we want to be able to help everybody with pet placement.  On our website we have two ways to find homes for your pet – Find Your Pet a New Home through and Get Your Pet from one good home to another.

Adoptions are done by appointment ONLY till APRIL 1st.  

To submit an adoption application, check out our adoption policy page and please fill out this form. You will be contacted via email within 5 days with scheduling information! – Cat / Kitten Adoption Form

Lenny is a very gentle cat that likes to be petted. Just don’t pet him for too long. He likes to be petted on his terms! He will purr when you pet him!

Lenny is playful and energetic and likes chasing the laser and playing with string toys! Lenny has quite a personality and is very entertaining and fun to watch.

Lenny is becoming more affectionate as he gets used to the volunteers and has been known to give a kitty kiss if he’s in a good mood! Remember -he’s a cat and it has to be on his terms! Lenny loves ear rubs but it’s the left one that he likes to have rubbed! He listens well and comes running when you call him! Lenny is a bit of a climber but you can win him over with treats. Bring out the treats and he’ll be at your feet in a flash.

Lenny says he’s waiting to go home and says Valentine’s day is just around the corner. He says he’d make a great valentine! If you’re not quite ready for Valentine’s day, he says he has a bit of Irish in him and would love to be your lucky leprechaun. Lenny is tired of being at the shelter and really needs a home where he can run around and have some space to play! He’s requesting a window that he can look outside and watch the wildlife.

Lenny would be best as an only cat. He might be okay with a quiet dog and older teens. Fill out an application online. A meet and greet will only be scheduled once the application has been approved. He would love to meet his new family soon! Lenny is also a candidate for our foster to adopt program. (dob 11/8/2021)

What can we say about Pinky? You’ve got to meet her to appreciate and love her! She has lots of spunk! She’s the person (but a cat ) that you would like to be if you wouldn’t get in trouble. She really tries to be good but just can’t help herself. She’s not bad but she just doesn’t have the social skills that most cats that live in a home have acquired. She was out on the streets and learned how to fend for herself and is just getting used to letting us do everything for her. She can be very sweet when she’s in the mood. She’s been known to give a few kisses.

If you want an active cat who won’ t be a couch potato, then Pinky is your cat. She is a very sweet and talkative, independent female adult cat. She’s affectionate and loves head rubs! Pinky is playful and loves attention. She loves to poke her paw at you when you walk by her cage as if to say come play with me and let me out! Pinky has a bit of a feistiness to her and loves running around the shelter playing catch me if you can! She loves the laser and string toys!

Come meet this sweetie! Pinky is very confident and will need an owner who can be patient with her and allow her to chill and get used to her new home. She loves canned fancy feast and you can win her over with that ! Pinky also likes running water and will ask you to turn on the faucet!

Pinky might be okay with a quiet dog and older teens. We feel that Pinky will be better as an only cat.

Pinky is ready for her new home. She’s good about being at the shelter and going in and out of her cage, but she would much prefer to be in her own home. She is a character and will win you over when you meet her! Won’t you open your heart to this kitty? She has her heart ready and open for new new family on Valentine’s day. Fill out an application online. A meet and greet will only be scheduled once the application has been approved. (dob 11/8/2019)
