We began our operation in January 2010 with a small group of dedicated citizens who share a passion for helping animals. We are a no-kill shelter in Southeast Kansas.

We are in need of volunteers. If you like pets and are interested in helping us, please call the shelter for more information. We and the pets will welcome you.

Volunteer Application: 




The "Proud Animal Lovers Shelter" aka (PALS) is a no-kill, state-licensed,501(C)(3) non-profit organization supported by donations and any grants we are fortunate enough to receive. We are very grateful for these.

We operate with only one full-time paid Shelter Manager, two part-time paid employees, and many wonderful folks who volunteer their time. We couldn't continue to shelter and care for the animals waiting for adoption without them.

Our physical location is 24052 Meade Rd or (Meade and Gabriel Streets) in Parsons KS. That's where you can find your new BPE (best pet ever)

Our mailing address is PALS--PO BOX 48--PARSONS KS--67357

That's where you can mail any donations or check out our wish list on Amazon.com at


We also accept donations via PayPal.
