Put your paws together for our Doggie Swim participants! On Sunday, August 13th over 180 dogs joined us at Walter’s Grove Pool! It was a beautiful day. We saw huge jumps in the pool, packs of goldens playing fetch, lots of splashing and lots of running around the pool. We can’t decide who enjoyed themselves more – the dogs or the humans!
Thank you for a great Classic Car Show!
Sunday, June 4th was a big day for Parma Animal Shelter – we raised $5,500 at our Classic Car Show! We couldn’t have done it without you -thank you to all of you who braved the rain for this spectacular event.
We would also like to thank the wonderful Custom Color & Collision, Baird Wealth Management, Axelrod Buick GMC and all of our sponsors.
Wait and Watch: The mother offers her newborn kittens their best chance for survival so wait and watch as long as you safely can for her to return before removing them. Mom’s may be gone as long as 4-5 hours to get food. Also, be aware if you find a single kitten please wait at a safe distance as the mother may be moving the kittens to a safer place which may take some time when moving several kittens one at a time.

A senior dog is laid back and just wants to chill out with you.
