Pillows for Paws is a 501c(3) non-profit organization with the mission to bring comfort and love to NYC shelter cats, dogs, rabbits, and guinea pigs. The group does this by donating beds, toys, and treats to Animal Care Centers of NYC on a monthly basis.
Beds and toys can be mailed to: Animal Care Centers of NYC, 326 East 110th Street, New York, NY 10029. And add a note so they know your package is from a PFP volunteer! Send us pics of so we can post or tag us @pillowsforpaws. Let's share our mission and your amazing work to get more people crafting and sewing for shelter animals! Please contact us with questions.
Donate a bed to a shelter cat or dog while honoring, remembering or celebrating your own companion animal or animal-loving friend or family member. We will sew a patch onto one of our handmade with love shelter beds and send you a picture before it goes to the city shelter. Please include the name of your animal.
When homeless animals come into a shelter, it is most likely because they have experienced abuse, neglect or abandonment. Any animal shelter is a stressful place. Pillows for Paws believes that the emotional well-being of these animals is a crucial factor in helping their overall health.
PFP's mission is to support a positive environment for shelter animals. The group does so by providing comfort items such as cozy beds, toys to keep them active, and yummy treats. When an animal feels supported and loved, they have a greater sense of ease and calm. Plus, they have a better chance of being adopted when they are relaxed.
At this time, we are offering Zoom classes to learn how to make our shelter beds or you can visit our DIY page for ways to make our shelter toys for cats, dogs, rabbits, and guinea pigs at home.
Even though we can't hold our normal in-person meet-ups, our mission still remains the same.
1) Donate to Pillows for Paws or make a monthly pledge so we can continue buying supplies for volunteers to make into beds and toys.
2) Go to the Wish List we have put together from ACC and choose items you would like to donate specifically. These items will get shipped directly to the Manhattan Animal Care Center.
3) Help us reach out to companies for donations of supplies, and manufactured beds and toys. If you are good with sales, marketing, or research this one is for you!
