Bringing Comfort and Love to NYC Shelter Animals

animal-loving people come together to sew beds and

create cat, dog and rabbit toys

​" Thank you so much for your donation of cat beds and catnip toys during last week's Adoptapalooza event.  We have already distributed the beds and toys to some of our foster homes and the cats have been enjoying them!  We had 4 cats get spayed/neutered this week, and it was so nice for the cats to be able to use your beds during their recovery.  Infinite Hope is a small group that relies on volunteers and donations from people who care about animal welfare.  We truly appreciate the love and care that went into creating the gifts that you shared with us."

" Pillows for Paws has a job for everyone. All you need is the heart for animals.  We have sewers, stuffers, braiders and more.  We put it all together to make the best we can for our shelter animals. This is a true labor of love.  Please join us! "

" Pillows for Paws is an amazing way for me to channel my creative outlet for a good cause.  Instead of a craft room full of half finished Pinterest projects or a pile of unwanted scarves, I know use my resources and skills to make items that bring joy and comfort, not only to  the animals, but the people who work tirelessly to save them.  I get to merge two passions of mine (crafting and animal rescue) all while doing home projects while I binge on Netflix! "

" It is so rewarding to be a Pillows for Paws volunteer.  Making special items to help make the lives of animals better is such a wonderful feeling. Not only are we helping them, but you make great friendships! "
