Meet our Animal Caretakers

Our animal caretakers are a unique group of men and women with diverse backgrounds. Our Animal Caretakers are all skilled in animal restraint and assist the doctors and technicians with the various treatments and procedures performed on patients here for wellness or sick visits as well as hospitalized and surgical patients. Our Animal Caretakers are a crucial part of maintaining the cleanliness of the kennels and the hospital for the protection of all the pets and clients coming through our doors. Many veterinarians and technicians of today started out in the Animal Caretaker departments of local hospitals.
