About Our Rescue Group:

Welcome to Small Paws Big Hearts! We are a small animal rescue located in North and Central NJ, while also assisting the tri state area. Currently we exist only of gracious animal lovers who foster the mini munchkins until they are adopted, no matter how long that takes. Our munchkins come from kill shelters, abandoned animals at pet stores, and sometimes the public who can no longer keep their pets. Smaller animals are too often forgotten and dumped off to someone or someplace else- we specialize in socializing these animals in order to find their forever home. Most of our mini munchkins are hammies, rats, mice, ferrets, birds, and bunnies, but sometimes other critters find their way to us as well. We offer one on one time and socialization which means we only care for a few munchkins at a time. This means we are always looking for foster homes from other dedicated animal lovers who want to lend a helping hand. Our goal is to take the small munchkins in when no one else wants them, give them love and socialization, and find them loving forever homes.

Why should you adopt?

small animals can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a small animal for sale or finding a small animal breeder, adopting a small animal from an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a small animal to your family. Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for a small animal. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or attention your small animal needs, and many other important things about how to house and care for a small animal. There are different types of small animals including Chinchilla, Degu, Ferret, Gerbil, Guinea Pig, Hamster, Hedgehog, Mouse, Prairie Dog, Rat, Skunk, and Sugar Glider.
