they are very helpful at finding a good fit for their animals. It's a no kill adoption place. I highly recommend them.

They do so much for so many dogs and cats, puppies and kittens who might otherwise be killed either on the streets or in a kill shelter. I love Pets Without Parents. They gave us our beloved Minie, and this is where we'll go whenever we decide to add a new fur baby to our family.

LOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE. The staff is extremely rude throughout the process after the application. They're nice at first, but everything changes once you're in. They put you on the back burner and never answer the phone when you need to know the status on your pet. I was told several times that I would receive a call with the status of my pet. I never received a single call and always had to contact them. TD:LR This place has zero communication and will waste your time.

These people will ultimately put you through the run around. Your application will most likely take a week if not longer to be approved. When you confront them about the situation they're extremely unprofessional. It's been almost four weeks since I applied and have been told multiple things by different people that don't add up. I've had to call to check on the status of the pet in question several times and was told different things from what the previous person told me. It's been an absolute mess. If you're looking to adopt a companion from this shelter, look elsewhere. You'll absolutely waste your time here.

This is where we got Wren - the staff was very helpful throughout the entire process. I believe they have some sort of partnership with the vetcare animal wellness clinic, as that was Wren's assigned vet, and they had all of his info ready to go. Very convenient. Props to the staff for taking care of these disadvantaged animals - and be sure to donate if you can.

This place is small, noisy, and filled to capacity most of the time; but the girls who run Pets Without Parents have the biggest hearts I've seen in a long time. They very clearly work hard to help these poor animals, and because of their hard work, I felt very comforted and reassured when I had to surrender my puppy, Jake. It was just a little over a week when I got the call telling me that Jake had been adopted. I was surprised by how quickly he found a comfortable home, and so happy to know that he has a big yard and other dogs to play with. These girls are miracle workers, and you can truly trust them to take care of your pets if you are in a position to give them up, OR to help you find the new four-legged family member you've been looking for. If you can do so, I urge you to donate to PWP! Whether it be food, litter, or a cash donation. Every little bit helps, and the ladies here deserve it. Thank you, Pets Without Parents. You made a difficult time in my life much easier to live with.

Staff was friendly and while they were very busy with the many animals, they were attentive when we needed them. When I went the shelter definitely needed plenty of adopters. Please go to this location and give a pup or kitty a forever home. ❤️ If you're interested in puppies and kittens they probably have some. When I went there were MANY kittens and a pack of puppy siblings.

For being a small place, I feel like they do the best they can. They are nice & there's a huge area upstairs for the cats. #PleaseAdopt

The people who worked here were very nice, but the adoption fee for my kitten was a bit expensive, the rest of the cats fees were half the price of my kitten. Loved the free vet visit that came with the adoption

Check this place out when looking for your next pet! Pets without parents may have less than standard facilities but they certainly care about the lovely animals they have taken in. The space is tight and can be loud with the larger dogs barking when the door is opened. They have very deserving animals that deserve a lovely home. Give this place a chance :)

Not a friendly place at all. Of course denied there for some unknown reason. What is unique to this shelter is the rudeness of the staff. Went to a professional shelter and was instantly approved. Save yourself from the snowflakes and visit a clean and friendly shelter whether it be a no-kill or not.

Do not go here!!!!! We were just denied an adoption because our pet would be outdoors. I guess they assume a pet in a cage all day has a better life then one that lives outside in the country with lots of acres. Very ridiculous to me. They should have this written in their policies before you are allowed to bond with these animals. Now I need to go break the news to two little that are going to be heartbroken. Stay away.

We fell in love with a great dog and they denied our application, they didnt even tell me until I called to check on it myself and they informed me the dog was being picked up by someone else. Their expectations are ridiculous! We went to visit the dog twice and then had to break the news to our 5 year old and 7 year old that they gave the dog to someone else without even giving us a chance to fix what they denied us for. We have 3 cats and a senior dog and this woman had the audacity to tell me we aren't good pet owners and they'll never adopt to us. I do not and will never recommend this rescue to anyone! Ps. It's a very old house that does stink and the dogs are all in cages vs dog runs. The smell was expected considering how many animals are in the small area and all using the bathroom in the cages. They do only have one person working there but we were acknowledged right away both times and they did let us take the dog out twice.

We got our baby kal from here a couple years ago. I love coming in. We're trying to find a good fit for our daughter for a cat, but we didn't click with any this time. We will definitely be back. You can tell the workers really care, and we leave a donation every time. Adopt don't shop!!

Best shelter I have seen. Great volunteers (including myself) working hard. No kill policy is great, and a lot of pets are adopted.

I adopted a 10 week old puppy from this shelter on May 2. On May 6, I had to take her to be seen emergently because she was vomiting, having diarrhea, and would not eat or drink. My poor baby was diagnosed with parvo, a very contagious virus among dogs. She was hospitalized for 5 days. I was devastated, but I advise anyone who has adopted from this shelter recently to have your dogs or puppies checked!! I was informed by the doctor that parvo can linger for YEARS!! Also, the shelter only helps out financially up to the adoption fee. My puppy costed me $195 at adoption, but $1500 after the treatments for parvo. Pets Without Parents only paid $195 for her treatments... my baby was only home for 4 days before she got sick...

I have not had any experience here, but most of their reviews are horrible. I know Franklin County has been shuttling down unworthy rescues. I know this because I have helped take some of the dogs. So my suggestion is, if this place is so bad and dirty, contact the local humane society and let them decide.

We just walked out of the place and Natalie is rude and was very short about the dogs she does have. Her excuse for the one dog is it jumps and could hurt someone. My experience with dogs is dogs jump and dogs can be trained. We asked to walk one of the dogs and was basically given every excuse and gave us the impression she just didn't want to deal with my husband and I. The place smells aweful and could use a little more cleaning. We understand animals use the bathroom but it smelled more like neglect than a animal just used the potty. We feel sorry for the animals she has in there. We would only recommend the place with the hope the animals can find a home and get out of there.

I walked into what looked like an abandoned house that wreaked of cat urine. The staff member working couldn't have cared less that we were there and seemed bothered that I had greeted her. When I asked about one of the 3 dogs in their care she yelled up the stairs to someone else for the answer before acknowledging me. I left because the odor was making me sick and I felt very uncomfortable having received such horrendous service. I was concerned that they were keeping animals in such a place.In addition the dog I had found on their website and wanted to see wasn't there. When I asked, the employee, or volunteer, didn't even bother to look at me the simply shouted that he wasn't there and kept on about her business. Do they even care about the welfare of their animals? Or potential adoptive pet parents?

I adopted a wonderful Assie/golden retriever 7 years ago. He had a brother and sister and Honda and not sure the other name but was wondering if anyone on here has them. If so please get ahold of me. Thanks. Pets without parents are great I even foster for them.

I saw a beagle on there website that I really liked. My dad and I made the 20 minute trip out to meet the puppy. He was cute as can be, relaxed, and was just perfect. The caretakers were clearly animal lovers. You could tell that they loved every animal there. So I felt like this was a safe choice.We filled out their application, and waited a few days.I decided to call them because I was too anxious and read the negative reviews on Google.They told me they couldn't get ahold of one of my references (my older brother..) which is typical because he doesn't have a voicemail set up and he doesn't pick up calls from random numbers. I gave him a call and told him to call the rescue back >:{ ! He made the call and about 15 minutes later they called me back letting me know I can come in and pick up MY puppy.I've had him now for almost 3 months and he is a bundle of joy, and extremely energetic!!I want to thank Pets without Parents because Robin, my puppy, has brought so much joy into my life. He means the world to me. THANK YOU VERY MUCHADVICE To those who want a puppy/dog/cat:Have reliable references THEY WILL CALL THEM.Establish a vet/patient relationship BECAUSE THEY WILL CALL YOUR VET.Take initiative and call them back if the process is taking longer then said process. (I have been disconnected on the phone from them... You bet I called right back!! I'm guessing their phones have shotty cables or something lol)They are serious about who takes their puppies/animals home and they should be, I appreciate that and you will too.

I adopted a wonderful dog who is healthy and is my best buddie her name is chili. The place is very professional and check and made sure are other dogs are taken care of and have been spayed and neutered and I have seen some reviews saying 1 star did not let me adopt a dog because my dogs where not spayed or neutered or I did not have a record of how my dog died but they are just making sure you are taking care of your previous or prior animals so if you go to another professional shelter they will say the same thing. They checked our record of animals approved us and I got my little pupper who I share a YouTube channel with and she is now 8 and very healthy so thank you she is the best dog ever.

Our application was denied for a female puppy because the other three female dogs in our house aren't spayed. The most ridiculous thing I have ever heard of. This "red-flag" cause of denial from an article sums up my experience with Pets Without Parents perfectly. "If you have had pets all your life, have a stable life, live in a house with a huge, safe backyard, don’t have any boisterous small children and have at least 1 other pet in great health and the rescue rejects you, this kind of scenario can be a sign that the rescue is hoarding animals because they don’t think anyone is good enough to adopt them."

Looks like a dump from outside but is quite professional for what I am sure is a passionately run but low resource operation. The animals are clean and well cared for and they try to screen the folks that come to adopt. They spay or neuter rescues through an outside vet. All around a quality service.

I did not adopt from here, however, I have made 2 visits to this place...it is clean, tho not ideal setup for the kittens with the constant barking and only seemed to be a single person on staff both of the times I had stopped in.

This place is heartbreaking. My husband and I fell in love with a puppy and the first to apply for her. We had 2 outstanding references, they contacted our landlord and vet and EVERYTHING CHECKED OUT. We were declined because they couldn't find records from my 12 year old beagle that passed about 6 months ago. Absolutely ridiculous. We are dog lovers and has our hearts set on that puppy. It's so sad to think that that 12 week old dog will keep sitting in a shelter and not in our loving home because Pets Without Parents made a very poor decision.

My husband and I adopted a healthy, happy puppy from this no kill shelter. Please remember that this facility is a no kill shelter. They do not euthanize the animals that they take in for any reason, and they pay for the medicine that the animal may need. The adoption fees cover the first round of vaccinations, and they do not make a profit. If you are appalled that they do not have AC or better facilities....help them out. My husband's band recently did a fundraiser for them. That's what they need....more good folks to help them out. Maybe, if enough of us give, they can get some AC....or help even more animals.
