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.

Donna Bright

Administrative and Operations Assistant


At PAWS since:
2006, the very beginning, as a volunteer; 2010 as a staff member.
Pets at home:

Chico, a “partly-TNR” cat – only the “T” applied – we discovered after trapping him that he was already neutered AND declawed, and you can’t put a declawed cat back outside!; and Sammy, a failed foster, who came to PAWS when his owner of 10 years passed away.

The most rewarding thing about my job:

Knowing that with each day that goes by and with each dog or cat we rescue, we get one step closer to becoming “No-Kill Philly!"

When I’m not at work, I’m probably:

Taking care of Mom.
