The PAWS Staff

The employees of PAWS are on the front lines in the rescue of Coronado’s pets. Whether they are providing emergency life-saving medical treatment, organizing fundraisers to provide our pets with essential resources, or showing an animal what it’s like to be loved for the first time, none of our happy endings would be possible without this team.

Working At PAWS

“My favorite part of working at PAWS is getting to be a part of the journey of every animal who comes through the door. Every one of our furry friends deserves a loving home, and it is so heartwarming to be a part of the process!” -Sierra

My ROle at PAWS

“I make sure every PAWS animal is fed, has plenty of water, and is LOVED. I make sure we have a very clean facility so that when potential adopters come in, our animals have a chance to shine!” -Janie


“Boomer is my 14-year-old hospice Chihuahua who was only expected to live for six months when I adopted him from PAWS in October 2019. Now he is healthier than ever and when I am at home we spend every moment together.” -Katie, Volunteer, Former Employee 

Why Paws?

“I truly love getting to know each one of our animals from the time they get to us until they are adopted. Watching their personalities develop and building a trusting relationship with them brings me a lot of satisfaction.” -Gina
