Bringing Comfort and Love to NYC Shelter Animals
Al Leibman, videographer
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 and medical supplies.
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.
We feature a rescue group for its help in saving animals' lives and pledge to donate handmade beds and toys to that shelter.
