About Morris Animal Refuge

The Morris Animal Refuge offers innovative and high quality care for cats, dogs and other small animals. The Refuge provides a full range of preventive, protective and adoption services for abused, neglected and abandoned animals. You can make a direct, and immediate impact on the lives of one of these animals by “saving a life today”, through a generous online donation to the Refuge.

The Morris Animal Refuge adoption services cover the Greater Philadelphia Pennsylvania Region only; consisting of an area in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland. In more than 135 years, no animal has ever been turned away from our door.

The Refuge, the first in the United States to care for cats, was founded by Elizabeth Morris, one of our nation’s pioneers in animal welfare, in 1874. The Refuge continues to operate today in Center City Philadelphia at its home at 1242 Lombard Street.

The Refuge is run by a small and dedicated staff whose primary responsibilities include animal care, adoptions and humane education. Our volunteers provide many hours of additional support with all phases of animal care and fund raising.

The Morris Animal Refuge is a nonprofit organization as determined by the Internal Revenue Service under their code, section 501(c)(3). The refuge is dependent on the community’s tax-deductible contributions to provide a second chance for these deserving animals.

The Morris Animal Refuge seeks to advance animal welfare by rescuing abandoned animals, providing them with basic care and, whenever possible, placing them in appropriate homes.

Through a variety of projects, the Morris Animal Refuge strives to promote humane pet care in the community.

For over 135 years, the Morris Animal Refuge has been committed to an intensive, careful adoption program that seeks to place animals in stable and permanent homes. To this end, the refuge staff and volunteers work with our animal population to furnish basic care and to reinforce their socialization. In accordance with our more general humane aims, all adopted animals are neutered prior to their release.

Other pet care initiatives undertaken by the refuge include a vigorous low-cost spay/neuter program that targets the entire Delaware Valley, aiming to both combat pet overpopulation and promote good health in individual pets. Also, the refuge has partnered with local dog-trainer Joseph White to produce a dog-training manual.
