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 • Adult • Female • Medium

Harper is a 3 year old beagle mix weighing less than 50 pounds. Harper was surrendered to PWP for having anxiety in her previous home. The owners reported that Harper would pace and be anxious even when the owners were home. They also reported that Harper would try to escape her crate when left alone. Harper seems to be a pretty happy girl here! She lies calmly in her cage, she doesn't chew her blankets, and is very housebroken. Harper has been very friendly with all the staff, even in this scary situation. She loves going for walks and and getting belly rubs!
