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!

Featured Pet:  Jake-Mikey - ADOPTED!

Mikey (formerly Jake) is a black lab mix, who was returned to a gassing shelter in NC in October by the family who adopted him in January because they did not have enough time and could not afford to care for him.  Mikey is well-behaved, housebroken, crate-trained, quiet and just wants to be near you and chew on his marrow bones.  He's not asking for much.  He's great with kids, other dogs and even cats.  He just wants a home of his own to share with you.  Please fill out an application for Mikey and make his wish for the holidays come true!
