Parma Animal Shelter
As I read some of these reviews, I have to say we don't agree with the lack of support for this shelter. We always hear good things about what these people do... save your poor reviews for the idiots who don't have their animals fixed and leave them running around the neighborhood mating with every dog or cat they come in contact with. What about the calls these people go on having to remove emaciated animals from idiots who starve their pets... you know the pets they supposedly love... spay or neuter your animal tomorrow to prevent more animals being put to sleep throughout our kennels, shelters or APL.

Parma Animal Shelter
Our Dogs got out and were missing for 2 days. I looked everywhere and finally found them at Parma Animal Shelter. When I got there they were just coming in from being walked and were well taken care of. My daughters were thrilled to get them back, but were sad at the number of animals in the shelter. I am thrilled with our shelter in Parma!

@albuckwald you are so full of it. This is one of the best shelters around. The fosters are so sweet and friendly. The love the animals receive here shows through in how sweet and loving the animals are. I recommend this shelter to everyone. Do not listen to liars like this albuckwald person.

Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter
Adopted a pitbull mix 6 months ago from CCAS. The staff was amazing, any question I had was immediately answered, the kennels were clean, all the dogs had beds, several volunteers eager to help, and play with these dogs. Will definitely return when Chance decides he wants a playmate.
Tips & Advices
Most city and county shelters offer affordable spay/neuter services. SPCA and Humane Society shelters also are known for their low-cost spay/neuter programs.
Shelters typically offer spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchipping and some essential medical treatment (deworming, mange treatment) to animals being adopted from the shelter. For other veterinary services, you will need to find a vet.
No-kill and low-kill shelters will state it in their online profile and other official materials. They will usually explain what their process/policy is for looking after the animals in their care. These are also known as “limited admission” shelters because they are usually at full capacity most or all of the time. Also, they often work with rescue organizations or county Animal Services authorities to accommodate animals living in inhumane conditions, abandoned or injured animals.
Anyone can bring a lost animal to a county or municipal shelter. However, private shelters affiliated with rescues often will not accept animals, whether lost or surrendered by owners. Shelters with low-kill policies often have a limited admission capability.
Adopting an adult dog from a county or city shelter usually costs $75-$100. Young adult purebreds and puppies often have a higher adoption fee.  The fee to adopt a cat is usually about $50– sometimes with discounts if one new owner adopts two cats. The adoption fee usually covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery and essential vaccinations.
