Bringing comfort and love to NYC shelter animals.
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.
• Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC), housing the largest population of animals on a continued basis.
• ACC's New Hope Partners of NYC Rescue Groups.
• Other local non-profit rescue groups in the New York City area.
How We Do What We Do
Volunteers lovingly make beds and toys at our events, monthly craft circles and at home.
We rely on donations from individuals and companies for:
• Monetary contributions
• Wish list purchases.
• Bulk donations of materials, manufactured animal toys and grooming supplies.
We feature a rescue group for its help in saving animals' lives and pledge to donate handmade beds and toys to that shelter.
