Bringing Comfort and Love to NYC Shelter Animals
Al Leibman, videographer
We feature a rescue group for its help in saving animals' lives and pledge to donate handmade beds and toys to that shelter.
Pillows for Paws is a 501c(3) non-profit volunteer run organization that donates essential material goods to NYC shelter cats, dogs and rabbits
including beds, toys, treats, grooming supplies and behavioral enrichment items.
Please check out the NYer of the week segment on the founder of Pillows for Paws, Jen Halpern and the amazing volunteers who make up this organization!
Homeless animals are usually beyond frightened when they come into a shelter environment since most have been abused, neglected or abandoned. Pillows for Paws believes that their emotional well-being is a crucial factor in maintaining an animal's overall health, assisting in modifying behavioral issues and as a result, increasing their adoptability.
Our mission is to help support a positive environment during their stay at the shelter. Comfort and enrichment items, such as a cozy bed to sleep on or a toy to keep them stimulated in their cages while they wait for their forever homes, bring them a sense of ease, calm and hopefully, a knowing that they are loved and not forgotten.
