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.
