Dr. Rippie loved his town. He knew what it meant to be a part of a community. A good neighbor. A trusted friend. A real small town vet with a big heart. It’s in that spirit of generosity that Dr. Torre and the staff at Pennsauken Animal Hospital have started a non-profit called Dr. Rippie’s Helping Paws.
Helping Paws is based on the belief that every animal deserves a second chance and families should never be faced with losing a beloved family member due to the cost of unforeseen veterinary care. Your support and donations towards this program will help other pet owners offset the financial burden of emergency care.
We can all think of a pet we lost too soon. A loved one we would give just about anything to have one more day with. One more game of fetch. One more shared cat nap. Let’s do this together.
All funds raised will be used to help animals in need of live-saving medical care.

Status: This sweet boy was surrendered to us after he was hit by a car. He needed to have his eye removed and his jaw wired. Our amazing friends at Community Cat Club stepped up and found a wonderful foster! He has healed beautifully and he is ready for his forever home. If you are looking to adopt, please contact Community Cat Club!
Status: In a medical foster. Brought in by ACO/a Good Samaritan. He was in terrible pain when he came in – his skin was cracked, oozing, and bleeding. He has made huge strides since being in foster but we know he still has a long journey ahead of him not just medically but also just learning how to be a puppy.
Status: In foster – Sophie came to us when she ate the top of a door stopper. She had emergency surgery and has been in foster ever since. She needs a very special home who understands her behavioral issues. We are looking for a rescue or sanctuary who can take her in.
Status: This little one was hit by a car. A group of kindhearted teens saw it happen and brought her to us for help. Kittens are absolutely amazing though and with some TLC she has become a healthy, happy, super playful kitten! She is starting on her vaccinations and regular vetting now that she is on the mend.
Status: Such a handsome boy! Pepper was surrendered because he was having some symptoms and behaviors that needed further investigation. After a whole slew of diagnostics, Pepper has some liver issues that we are hoping will resolve soon and he needs to drop some pounds but we are hopeful he is on the up and up! He LOVES his foster family and has become besties with one of their dogs.
Status: River's sister!! While we will never know 100% absolutely for sure, we are pretty convinced that she is River's sister. She is in a little better health condition as opposed to River but will need some TLC for her skin issues. She is a really happy, energetic, playful, silly girl. We are completely in love with this sibling duo!
Status: Troubles was surrendered to us by his very loving mama. Overall he is a healthy, 5 year old, declawed boy who is adjusting to a whole new foster home. We know this sweet boy will make some lucky family very happy when he is ready for adoption!
Status: Gubbers was surrendered with a severely broken leg after accidentally being stepped on. His family chose to surrender him and our amazing team stepped up yesterday to amputate his arm as he was in excruciating pain. We also neutered him while he was under. Once he is feeling better we will start his regular vetting.
