Paws on the Green is a NJ 501c3 rescue organization for senior, special needs and pets of all ages. We are also dedicated to saving cats and dogs in NYC's Animal Care & Control (ACC) shelters and those in the rural South. We are a member of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals and a New Hope Partner.
Our mission is to end the killing of adoptable pets in shelters and to move towards a no-kill nation.
Please help us save lives by donating, fostering, or adopting a homeless pet.
Our rescue was founded in 2011 to help homeless animals on death row in the Southern states. Most of these animals have never lived indoors and most end up in very rural, high-kill shelters where their chances for adoption or making it out alive are unlikely.
No matter where they are from, they are all so grateful to be given a second chance and there's always a wagging tail waiting to meet us when we pick them up from the transport!
We promote and help senior pets and those with disabilities who end up in shelters. Please consider fostering or adopting a senior pet. They are wonderful souls who do not deserve to end their lives in a shelter. They deserve a warm bed, a quiet, peaceful home and someone to spend their golden years with, who will love them as unconditionally as they will love you.

It takes a lot of love, hard work and dedication, but the animals make every day a joy for us especially when they find their forever homes!
