Director of Animal Welfare for the Central Hollywood area - Ms. Rachel Paap


Paap’s background in advertising and entertainment has greatly influenced her career in animal welfare. As the Director of Community Programs for The Sam Simon Foundation, she was accountable for the development and implementation of public awareness for the foundation programs.  Paap single-handedly created the foundation structure and developed the humane education curriculum that catapulted neighborhood interest with the mobile spay/neuter clinic, which is still being presented to schools and community youth centers in targeted areas of Los Angeles.  

Previously, Paap was the Program Manager for the Spay Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP), where she forged key relationships and partnerships with other organizations for continuous joint ventures in humane outreach.  Paap created the plan for placement of the mobile spay/neuter clinic locations in large community centers, such as popular grocery stores and shopping areas. 

Currently, her boutique public relations consulting business (RP Worx) enables Paap to act on behalf of animal welfare charities; securing funding for various projects, and aiding existing organizations with programs, events and marketing campaigns.

She and her husband share their home with four rescued cats and two dogs, and a revolving door to nurture, rehabilitate and re-home street dogs.
