Paws on the Green is a no-kill, all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) organization.  We are 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 (formerly My Best Friend Foundation).  We help those that are left behind due to age, illness or disabilities.

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 fostering or adopting a homeless pet.

Little is a 15-year old sweetie; he was surrendered to the NYCACC because of declining health. Little's owner refused to take him to a vet but instead dumped him at the center.   Little has since received the necessary vet care that he needed.  He has hypothyroidism, which is easily treatable and is doing much better; he is gaining weight and resting comfortably.  Little needs a long-term foster or adopter to take care of him in his golden years!   He requires his thyroid meds twice a day.  He takes his pills calmly and is very friendly.  Please give this older gent a warm and sunny home for his retirement!
