We work hard to make sure that we take care of all of our pets here at Paws on the Green. But, unfortunately we can't do it without people like you.  Your donations of time and money are priceless and allow us to continue saving lives. If you want to be a part of our family and help some of the best animals around, check us out. 

If you've always wanted a dog, puppy, cat or kitten, now is the time to adopt!  We are here to help you get ready for your new family member, as soon as you're ready to take the big plunge. Adopting an animal is, after all, one of the most gratifying things you can do.

Foster Application

a message from Lucy:  we need foster homes for POTG's rescued dogs - most of us are seniors.  please help us by fostering.  it is temporary and gives us a chance to relax and enjoy the comforts of being in a real home.  boarding is no place for dogs of any age, especially seniors like me.  we get very stressed and the noise is unbearable.  it's just like a shelter - the barking and crying never stops.  please click below to foster a sweet dog like me.  love and KISSES from lucy. 

Paws on the Green is a non-profit 501c3 hospice and rescue organization for senior and special needs pets in northern New Jersey.  We are also dedicated to saving cats and dogs in NYC's Animal Care & Control (ACC) shelters and those in the rural South.  We are a member of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals and a New Hope Partner. 

Our mission is to end the killing of adoptable pets in shelters and to move towards a no-kill nation.
Please help us save lives by donating, fostering or adopting a homeless pet.

Princess is a 4 y/o Boxer-lab mix although she still looks like a puppy.  she once had a family but they dressed her up in a hat and scarf and took her for her last ride with them as they left her at a high kill shelter.  she was very depressed and lost a lot of weight.  she is a very good girl - she loves to go for walks and is now in a temporary foster home until she arrives to us in NJ.  she is available for foster or adoption.  princess is okay with another calm dog and she loves people!

lucy is a very friendly shepherd mix -- she is always smiling despite her not so great past - she's had many puppies because no one cared that she wasn't fixed.  lucy is 6-8 yrs. old, good w/ dogs, kids & adults.  she is housebroken and utd w/ all shots.  she is ready to come home with you!
