At All About Pets we have gathered the best team ever to care for your fur child: they are helpful, compassionate, and essential to the overall care provided.
Anastasia has been a member of the team since 2011. She cannot imagine working anywhere else. She enjoys being hands-on at work with grooming, exercising the boarders and assisting with treatments. When she is not up to her elbows in fur, she can usually be found savoring her free time outdoors, reading or dressing her cats in ridiculous costumes. With no plans of leaving her animal friends behind, Anastasia intends to further her knowledge, skills and career within the animal field.
Dennis joined us in 2013. Having almost 12 years of veterinary experience, as well as spending time in a cat only rescue, he is a valued member of All About Pets. In order to give the best care possible to our patients, Dennis has worked to further his knowledge in the field and is looking towards earning his RVT license. In his free time, Dennis enjoys cooking (Cordon Bleu graduate no less!), spending time with his family, including his 9 year old grey tabby, Krill. He also cheers on his beloved Los Angeles Kings hockey team.
Kristen is our office manager and front desk representative. She has a passion for assisting clients and in providing the best care possible for their cats. Kristin lives in Orange county with her husband, Rowdy the dog, and Gizmo and Gatsby, her rescue kitties. In her free time, she enjoys camping, the beach and Disneyland trips.
Jennifer, who joined our team 3 years ago, graduated from Cal Poly Pomona and received her B.S in the Animal Health Science program. She is looking forward to getting her RVT license soon. Jennifer has cared for all animals but has had a soft spot for cats since she was a child. One of her goals is working with big cats, particularly tigers! She is mom to an 8 year old calico rescue kitty.
We try to keep our core staffing intimate. This allows all of us to get to know you and your pet personally in order to serve you better. How nice to be known by name by your neighborhood vet and the staff!!
Meet our Pets!!!
All three are special needs and have found a happy home here in the clinic.
Cleo – AAC – It is “all about Cleo”! Clea left us for the rainbow bridge in late 2013. At time of rescue, she was a twenty pound diabetic cat on dry food. For her last four years she weighed a healthy twelve pounds and no insulin! Always our diva but after all, she does have the tri-colored calico “attitude”.
Sonny came to us over Christmas 2008 as a skinny, sick outdoor cat. He flourished here for quite a few years, but he passed on a couple of years ago and is still sorely missed.
Sammy is our shy special needs cat. He had a spinal fracture as a kitten. He requires daily care in order to urinate. What better place than a veterinary hospital to call his own!!
