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.

Xena may be a very small 4 pound package, but inside lies a pure warrior princess. Xena is a four year old chihuahua. She was rescued from a county shelter where she was surrendered for a leg injury. Upon pulling this little girl, we quickly realized her leg was the least of her worries. Xena has a condition called Megaesophagus. Her esophagus is too large to function normally. Xena needs to be held upright while she eats so that her head is higher than tail in order for gravity to help her food reach her belly. Xena is the perfect sport and loves loves loves to be held so the process is easy. Xena is looking for a forever home that can give this sweet girl the extra TLC she needs. If you have any questions about her condition or needs, please call the shelter at 614-267-7297.

Xena's adoption fee is only $160. She will be spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, tested for Heartworm, and microchipped.

Maggie is part of the "Walking Dead" litter. Maggie and her group were abandoned in a rubbermaid storage tub out in the wilderness and to fend for themselves. Have no fear, the group was spared from becoming Zombie food! Maggie is ready to break off from the group. She just wants a safe home and new family to love.

Adoption fee of $100 includes spay, initial vaccines and deworming, and testing for Feline Leukemia and FIV.
