PAWS services during COVID-19: Clinic visits for sick pets, vaccinations, and spay/neuter available by appointment (curbside service). Walk-in clinics remain suspended. We continue to rescue animals! Adoptions and foster by appointment only. Donations to the Emergency Fund for PAWS help ensure we can keep doing our lifesaving work despite the current crisis.

Caroline Childs, VMD

Medical Director

At PAWS since:
Pets at home:

Milo (9 year-old Colorado Mutt); Wulver (2.5 year-old “Philadelphia Special”/Mutt); Darth Vader (3 year-old badass cat)

The most rewarding thing about my job:

Working with owners, colleagues, and co-workers who love their animals and others' animals, working toward improving the health and lives of all animals in Philadelphia.

When I’m not at work, I’m probably:

Running with Wulver, skiing with Milo, biking/cooking/reading a book with my fiancé Bryan, or going on an adventure with all three.
