Meet Lavinia! 🐾

Lavinia joined the team as a kennel assistant in March of 2022. She joined the veterinary field due to her strong passion for helping animals. Growing up, she moved to different areas, such as Arizona, Texas, Hawaii, and more, which allowed her to meet various kinds of animals and wildlife that she fell in love with. It became instinct to always surround herself and care for every animal she came across, so she always knew that this was a job she wanted to pursue.

Lavinia says, “What I enjoy most about working with animals is being able to reciprocate the love they constantly show and give us through what we do each day! Whether it’s cleaning their space or assisting with a medical procedure, it’s never a dull day when you’re surrounded by what you love!”

Lavinia has three rescues of her own that are all the light of her life! She has a 1-year-old Pit/Lab mix, Aurora, a Jack Russell/Boston Terrier, Shiloh, and Milo who’s a Chihuahua/Jack Russell who are both 2-years-old and full of spunk! They all really love beef liver treats, Stinson dog beach in San Francisco, and walks at Bidwell Park’s Five Mile!

In Lavinia’s free time, she loves to go hiking or walking with her dogs. She also enjoys coloring, painting, and watching new movies!
