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.

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.

Paws on the Green is a 501c3 organization dedicated to saving animals on death row in local shelters and those in the rural South.  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!

Poor Riley was brought to a gassing shelter in NC in this horrible condition.  He lived his life on a chain, with his collar growing painfully into his neck and flies constantly biting his ears.  He is very underweight and probably was only fed table scraps or nothing at all.  Despite all of this, Riley still manages to wag his tail and is very friendly and happy. Riley deserves a very special home and to know that life can be good.  Won't you be that special person who can give this young dog the life he has never known?  Please fill out an application for sweet Riley!
