Contact About
Jill Rawlins
Executive Director
Jill is dedicated to improving the care of pets in need while maintaining fiscal responsibility to ensure the lasting legacy of our shelter’s operations.  She has almost 20 years of experience in strategic planning, fundraising and business operations.

Jill is a recent transplant from Virginia who is happy to call South Jersey home.  She is the proud mother of 4 kids, of which one is a lovable (and crazy!) golden-doodle named Charlie and newly adopted shelter pup, Peanut.

Gina DiMarco
Director of Development
With more than 10 years of development experience in both the for-profit and non-profit sectors, Gina is all about building community and driving home the mission of Homeward Bound!  She’s been adopted by three cats and most recently, an adorable foster failed puppy.  She also has two hilariously mischievous sons named Vince (11) and Nate (5).

Valerie Miller
Clinic Manager
Our Clinic Manager, Val, has more than 30 years of experience working in shelter medicine!  She started her career as an emergency vet tech in Clementon and decided her talents were best spent caring for sick and at-risk animals.  When not coordinating medical staff or handling emergency cases, Val can be found enjoying her grandson and granddaughter, 3 cats and 2 dogs.

Jennifer Scoppetta
Animal Shelter Manager
Jennifer has more than 10 years of management experience and a sincere passion for animal welfare. She’s lived in Jersey her whole life and has always felt called to work with animals. In fact, she has four adopted shelter kitties, a reformed feral kitty from the streets of Philadelphia, and a rescued-from-euthanasia kitty (who at 15 years of age prefers to be called a refined gentleman)!

Shawna Donahue
Lifesaving Programs Manager

Shawna has always been passionate about animal welfare, and it seems as though all manner of wildlife know it!  It’s not uncommon for her to show up with an injured blue jay, a scared baby bunny, or an ornery feral cat.  She currently has one dog, four cats and three rabbits- all of which are rescues!

Rose Rumaker
Administrative Manager
 Having worked at the shelter for 12 years, Rose is the heart and soul of Homeward Bound. While her job consists of bills, payroll, and human resources, she’s also the general cheerleader of shelter activities. She deftly handles day-to-day challenges with wisdom, humor, and kitten snuggles.
Rose has 7 wonderful grandbabies, her dog, Rosco, and a cat, Pretty Girl.

Andrew Widmann
Volunteer Coordinator
Heart is at the center of Andrew’s philosophy for life. Having started out working with the public, Andrew has been managing different teams for almost 15 years. During that time, he’s run a photography business capturing everything from the city night life to destination weddings. Living in a small yellow cottage with his wife and four rescue cats, he hopes that his outlook is one that can help grow the wonderful programs available at Homeward Bound.
Eladio Paz
Communications Coordinator
Kathryn Custer
Foster Coordinator

Christian Butler
Canine Coordinator
Christian joins us with more than 5 years of animal welfare experience!  He is a certified animal control officer with a soft spot for exotics (reptiles, birds and small mammals).  In fact, he has a veritable pet paradise in his home featuring 4 snakes, 8 lizards, a frog, a tortoise, a scorpion, a chinchilla, a cat, 2 dogs and a fish tank!
