Very Unhappy with Service.

posted 5 years ago

For a shelter that advertises in taking in stray dogs and cats from the Parma area, they denied an injured kitten that I found in the Parma area from being cared for and taken in at their shelter. I had volunteered at the shelter for two years in the past and honestly, I expected higher of them. I was astounded at the negative attitude that they evoked towards me, and not remembering that I was a dedicated volunteer in the past. They told me that if I were to leave the kitten with them, they would be entitled to call the police on me for "abandonment" (although it wasn't my kitten, it was a stray!) They also told me that they weren't accepting any more cats, although I know for a fact that the shelter is never "Full", they just decide to treat their customers in a rotten manner - as they expected that I was just dumping one of my cats that I bought from a pet store on them - which is extremely untrue; therefore they make it very difficult for a parma citizen to do a good deed and bring in a stray (i've witnessed this scenario in the past when I volunteered.) After bantering with them about how I found the kitten, they made me sign a form, telling me that the animal warden was going to put the kitten to sleep. They continued to verbally harrass me about how I was killing a kitten - a kitten that I couldn't keep hence I barely have a living space of my own and am living on food stamps - as I walked out of the shelter my visit was then concluded with "Thank you for Killing It."

Pros: If you could get a cat in the shelter, it gets taken care of well (I hope)

Cons: Very rude to people, makes me worry about how they treat their animals.

Great To Be a Volunteer

posted 6 years ago

I have been a volunteer with the Parma Animal Shelter for over 7 years! We strive to provide the highest care and the best homes for our "residents". If you are looking for a great forever addition to your family here is the place to look. If you are looking to give back to the community, Parma Animal Shelter is the place to volunteer!

Pros: Endless Love!

Cons: Not enough good homes out there!
