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.

​​Pillows for Paws is a 501c(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to bring comfort and love to NYC shelter cats, dogs and rabbits.  The group does this by donating

beds, toys, and treats to  Animal Care Centers of NYC  on a monthly basis.
