Paws on the Green, Inc. rescues animals on death row in local and rural shelters in the South. We are a New Jersey non-profit animal welfare organization that promotes the adoption of homeless animals regardless of age, breed or health condition. We strive to take the ones that other rescues and adopters leave behind either because the pet is senior, has a health condition or has a disability.
If you would like to foster one of our animals, please visit our website and click "How You Can Help". The foster application can be found there.

Come Meet Our Pets...
Our rescued animals are placed in foster homes in the New York and Northern New Jersey areas. Our animals are also boarded in veterinary hospitals in the South until we can transport them to our NJ locations. We also have rescue partners in Canada.
Our Adoption Process...
We require potential adopters to fill out an adoption application; there is a phone interview, home visit and vet/personal reference check prior to approval and adoption. The Adopter must sign an Adoption Agreement.
