Our Team

Corinne Smith

Corinne has always had an interest in being able to help animals in need. When travelling around Asia, Corinne witnessed many animals without homes or shelter; mistreated, ill or malnourished. These profound experiences were the catalyst that prompted Corinne to found the Helping Paws charity.

Phil Evans

Having 7 cats and a rescue stray dog at home, Phil has always had a soft spot for waifs and strays. Phil travels extensively and wherever he goes, he always has pocket full of biscuits and will be found feeding & fussing the animals.

Sara Kelly

After travelling around India and seeing the number of animals in need of care and attention, Sara has been looking for a  project that she can be part of to truly make a difference. The HP philosophy reflects her beliefs and she is delighted to share in their work.

Neil Cottam

Neil has always had a soft spot for animals… He has lots of time to play and makes sure that they are taken good care of. Neil owns a woodland area in Derbyshire, U.K. which he is using to achieve his eco-friendly vision of maintaining habitats of wildlife; which fits in perfectly with the Helping Paws vision.
