About CharityPaws


Jill Caren Bio

Hey there! My name is Jill and I am the girl behind CharityPaws.

CharityPaws is a digital magazine and community focused on helping the animal welfare community by providing tools and resources for shelters/rescues to raise money, improve marketing and inspire change.

I also focus on helping animal lovers by providing pet industry news, products and creative ways they can help their local shelters and rescues.

I have been a passionate advocate for many years and thought having an outlet like this would be useful to the animal welfare community and allows me to give back! I have volunteered at rescues, as a NJ pet photographer I have spent countless hours photographing pets for adoption and fundraisers and am an active member of several animal communities.

I am the mom of Cleo, a rescued American PitBull Terrier and Snoopycat – whom is also a rescue! I also was a proud mom to (2) pittie sisters Ginger and Riley who passed, but forever live on in my heart.


My ultimate goal is to give back, whether via donations – free downloads or with great resources to help animal welfare organizations succeed. I have a huge desire to help bring awareness to important issues and inspire others to get involved to make change so the world can be a better place for animals!
