Mission Statement

Happy Paws Rescue Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and New Jersey non-profit corporation dedicated to animal rescue and adoption. We specialize in the rescue of dogs and cats from high-volume shelters where the prospect of permanent placement is unlikely. We also serve as an educational resource for the public regarding the prevention of cruelty to animals, in addition to spay and neuter awareness to reduce the population of homeless and stray dogs and cats. By working with committed volunteers and veterinarians, we provide all dogs and cats in our care with medical attention and a safe haven prior to placement in their permanent, loving homes.


Happy Paws Rescue Inc. is an all-volunteer group. We provide homeless pets with necessary medical attention and foster care before placing them into loving homes. We do not have a physical shelter. Instead, all animals are fostered in the homes of volunteers. This gives us with the opportunity to learn more about the animals and provide socialization and training. For many of these animals, it is in these foster homes that they first learn what it means to be beloved house pets. We are always looking for volunteers to help us help the animals. The importance of foster homes cannot be understated. We can only help as many animals as we have foster homes. We also need volunteers to help with special events, fundraising, etc. No matter what your talent is, we’re sure we can use your help! Adoption days are held every Sunday the Petco in Piscataway, NJ from noon to 4pm. It’s a great opportunity to meet our animals and possibly take home a forever friend!
