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 of the Week

Train has been waiting since last July for a forever home - maybe you'll be the one? He's a playful, high-energy dog who's  looking for an experienced, active person. Adults only. Neutered.

OMG, that face! Franco's a great cat with an awesome personality. Looking for a super-sweet special needs guy (heart murmur) who's declawed and already neutered? Adopt!

Ever hear of Olive the other reindeer? Well, here's Olive the domestic rat! She's a sweet, social girl. And yes -  rats can make great pets! More info...
