Core Values


We appreciate all animals, our volunteers, and the community.

We work to place our shelter animal in loving forever homes.

We work to treat our shelter animals, especially those who may exhibit behavior or medical issues.

We work to provide a safe place for shelter animals and give them food and water, love, and medical care.

We spay and neuter all animals that come into the shelter in an effort to reduce the pet population and number of abandoned animals

We work to educate the public about what the Parma Animal Shelter, a 501(c)(3) organization, does. We also educate about the humane treatment of animals, the importance of spay and neuter, and much more.
