Welcome to Pets Without Parents!

Pets Without Parents, founded in June of 2001, is a non-profit, no-kill, all-breed shelter for dogs and cats.

Our mission is to place every pet that enters our shelter into a loving, permanent home; to motivate our local community to support our shelter, its no-kill mission, and spay-neuter efforts through donation, volunteer, and adoption opportunities...until every pet goes home.

Our Featured Pets




Beagle Mix & Terrier • Young • Female • Medium

House trained • Spay/Neuter • Current on vaccinations


Nellie is cute little 10 month old beagle mix. She is petite and loves to run or lie in your lap for belly rubs. Nellie came to PWP as a terrified little girl. She was afraid of the leash, the outdoors, and new people. She now walks well on a leash and is slowly meeting new people. Nellie is looking for a home that will take things slowly and help her grow! At this point, it will be easiest to introduce Nellie into a quiet home without kids or other pets. If you have any questions about Nellie or her progress please call the shelter at 614-267-7297.

Adoption fee of $160. She is spayed and up-to-date on vaccines.
