Welcome to Morris Animal Refuge

The Morris Animal Refuge is a 501(c)(3) open admission shelter dedicated to helping the homeless, abandoned and unwanted pets of the Philadelphia region.  Founded in 1874 by Elizabeth Morris, we were the first organization dedicated to sheltering and rehoming pets, and continue that legacy today by providing adoptions, a low-cost spay/neuter program, fostering, humane education and more.   (read more)

Featured Pets: Dog Spike & Cat Spike!

106852 (Spike, blue pit bull terrier-mix dog)

Spike is a handsome 1 year old blue Pit Bull Terrier-mix boy, a loyal guy who loves playing ball and tug-of-war. (And cheesesteak - here he is waiting patiently in the Refuge office for a bite.) Looking for a person with big dog experience; gets along with other dogs. (106852)
106636b (Spike, black and white cat)
Spike is a sweet old lady who loves to relax & snuggle - the kind of cat every home needs along with hot tea, freshly baked bread, & a comfy rocking chair. Sadly, her person was allergic. She's been hoping for a new friend since Fall - are you the one? (106636)
