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.

Rich Wilkinson

Adoption Coordinator


At PAWS since:
2015 as a volunteer; 2017 as a staff member.
Pets at home:

Zachary (age 8) and Binx (age 9) plus my foster Smudge (Rex Manning).

The most rewarding thing about my job:

Watching the absolute joy and occasional tears from people finding their furry soulmate.

When I’m not at work, I’m probably:

At a local Fishtown bar for food and drinks, except for Friday and Saturday, when I am cuddled up on the couch with a legion of kitties and catching up on my DVR. Alternatives to that are concerts, a Phillies/Flyers game, or randomly traveling out of town to see the world.
