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 Jean Bolling!

Become a Permanent Foster

From time to time, the Parma Animal Shelter takes in kittens and cats that will need ongoing veterinary care.  It is possible to take one of these felines home as part of our permanent foster program.  As a permanent foster, you provide basic supplies (regular food, litter, etc.) and love, and the shelter pays for the medical care of the animal.  Some of these animals require daily medication or frequent trips to our veterinarian for procedures – each situation is unique.  If you would like to permanently foster one of our special needs cats or kittens, please email

Give me a G.. Give me an A.. Give me an I… Give me an L.  What does it spell????? GAIL!!!!  Gail is wondering where her family is.  She’s been waiting and no one has shown up to adopt her. Gail says she’s ready for her forever family to come in and take her home! Miss Gail is a sweet and friendly female cat.  She will let you pet her if she trusts you and likes head scratches and cheek rubs.  Offer her a treat and she will take it from your hand. She just recently climbed onto the shoulders of someone looking to adopt her so if you’d like a cat to hang out on your shoulders, Gail is the cat for you.  Gail seems to be a little quiet, calm and laid back. She is becoming a little more adventurous as she explores the main room at the shelter. Gail is also more trusting and will sit on your lap if she is comfortable with you. She seems to like to come to you when she’s in her cage. Gail loves looking out the window and is requesting a large window to look out on sunny days to watch the birds and squirrels.  She is also very playful and absolutely loves string toys and lasers.  She seems a little cautious around other cats and will go back in her cage if she’s not sure of the cat.  If she’s okay with the other cat, she’ll hang out near her cage and just walk around. Gail might be okay with a quiet dog and older children.  Fill out an application online.  You will receive an email once the application has been approved.  (dob 10/14/22)
