May/June Shelter Update
- You can visit the shelter to adopt without an appointment! We are open 10-12 noon on Saturday and Sunday and 5-7 pm daily. Our front desk staff answers the phones during these hours and also from 10-12 noon M-F. We have made our website as helpful as we can by including resources and links to answer most questions we receive via phone calls.
- We require visitors to fill out an adoption application and receive approval before adopting.
- We strongly suggest filling out an application before visiting with our cats or dogs, otherwise you will have to wait for your application to be reviewed and come back at a later date to adopt.
- Responses to applications for cats will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org via email within 72 hours of submission.
- Responses to applications for dogs will be sent from email@example.com via email within 28-48 hours.
- Your approval email will detail any information you need to know for adoption.
- We cannot guarantee that a specific cat or kitten or dog will be available during your visit, and we will not be putting holds on kittens.
To submit an adoption application, check out our adoption policy page and please fill out this Cat / Kitten Adoption Form.
Potential adopters are welcome to fill out an application during their visit to the shelter but we do recommend that they do it on-line ahead of time. The application will then be reviewed by health and welfare. If they are a good match, an appointment will be scheduled with an adoption counselor. All other animals in the home must be brought in for a meet and greet to determine compatibility with our shelter dog.

Fundraising, Volunteering and Events
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 also have ongoing campaigns on Giving Grid to help us raise money for medical care for our guests.
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, walk dogs and take care of kitties. There are 100 jobs necessary to run an animal shelter. We are proud to be 100% volunteer. Once trained, volunteers can choose from open slots on Signup Genius during the week if they have extra time to give. We appreciate the many people who step up to help with events and come in for extra shifts as needed. Our Star volunteer last month was volunteer Paul Feador!

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.

Blackjack has been waiting at the shelter the longest to get adopted. This big boy is 3-4 year old, weighs 66 pounds, and is a hound mix. He will require a physical fence at least 6 feet high. He can easily jump over 4-foot fences. Blackjack is a true hound who has his nose to the ground on walks. He particularly enjoys chasing squirrels up trees. He is dog-friendly. Blackjack will need training to become the best dog he can be. Training will be provided by the shelter. We just need an adopter. Blackjack is neutered, microchipped, heatworm negative and completely vaccinated. We know there is a home out there for Blackjack. If you want to meet our big boy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment to meet him. Blackjack’s adoption fee is $160.
