Who We Are

Only Kindness, Inc. is a no-kill, 501 (c) (3) nonprofit, all volunteer rescue organization whose focus is humane education regarding kindness to animals, responsible pet care and the importance of treating people, animals and the environment with kindness and respect. For the past 14 years, we have saved countless lives, and our mission has promoted kindness to animals through proper care and training. 

What makes us unique is that we don’t just rescue, foster, and adopt. We’re willing to go above and beyond to save lives, provide humane education, develop innovative ideas, focus on overlooked populations and at-risk animals. Additional organizational programs include arranging low-cost spay/neuter services, and developing municipal ordinances to create Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs to help care for community cats and reduce homeless overpopulation throughout Northern New Jersey. In addition to creating the programs, we also provide educational seminars to students about responsibility, humane care and the TNR programs at local universities. 

A recent organizational highlight was drafting a proclamation that declared October 20, 2016 as Pets of Domestic Violence Day in Essex County, NJ.  We coordinated an event to raise awareness of the need for pet friendly domestic violence shelters. Funds were raised to help the community’s Safe House provide emergency stays in pet-friendly hotels for victims, or boarding at a temporary safe haven to pets of at-risk families. We’re hoping to help establish the first permanent co-sheltering programs in NJ. 

We do more than just care for animals and find their forever homes; we work to change policies and to improve the treatment of animals throughout our community.  

We greatly appreciate tax deductible contributions of any kind to help us to continue our efforts!
