January/February Shelter Update

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.  This month we are having a Dine-to-Donate Event at Dairy Queen Grill n’Chill on Broadview Road in Seven Hills  January 17th which is also Betty White’s birthday so we are having a Giving Grid Fundraising Campaign to honor her memory and help us take care of our animals.  We have taken in many cats and dogs in the past few months and we are full again. We are also looking for volunteers so if you can help, please submit an application.  Our Calendar of Events this year will also include March Muttness and a Golf Outing in June.

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 Adopt-a-Pet.com and Get Your Pet from one good home to another.

Adoptions are done by appointment ONLY.  We have found that using the appointment system results in more adoptions than having walk-ins. We hope to welcome visitors again in 2023.  Stay tuned for details!

Have you seen our Vivian! She’s a bit of a sassy girl and has a mind of her own. Vivian likes things her way but that’s okay! She deserves to be spoiled! She was recently fostered but didn’t get along with the other cat. Cut her some slack! We don’t always get along with others either… Anyway, this cat likes to be the center of attention and loves to be brushed! Vivian is friendly, sweet and affectionate when the mood suits her. She will be great for someone who wants an independent cat. Vivian is not a lap cat but will sit right next to you! You get the best of both worlds. The cat is near you but not on your legs so you can still move! Vivian loves ear and cheek rubs. Vivian is confident and definitely wants to be the alpha cat. She’s a very well-behaved cat otherwise and is pretty easy-going! She has no catitude when she is in a home and not inside the shelter. Vivian is playful and loves the laser! She can afford to lose a little weight so she’s looking for that someone who will make her run and get some exercise. Vivian loves looking out the window to watch the wildlife outside the shelter window. She is good with older children and may have been around them in her previous home. Vivian would be better as an only cat. She might be okay with a quiet dog and should be fine with teen-age children. Vivian is packing her bags and is ready to go to her new home! She looks at you when you walk past her cage with her beautiful big blue eyes as if to say “please take me home,”. Vivian will let you know if you’re the ONE! Fill out an application online. A meet and greet will only be scheduled once the application has been approved. (dob 10/27/2016)
