Amanda K., Head Veterinary Technician

Jinnie, Veterinary Technician

Jinnie received her Associates Degree in Animal Sciences; Veterinary Technology in 2015. She has four dogs and three cats, all of which are rescues. She is passionate about educating pet owners in the importance of spaying and neutering their pets and is an outspoken advocate for rescuing pets from shelters. I believe it is an win/win situation for all involved because the pet gets a loving forever home and the adoption fees help cover day to day operations as well as fund the more rescues. Most of all the owners will be amazed at the admiration, loyalty and devotion a rescued pet can give. It is often hard to determine exactly who saved who.

Whenever possible she volunteers with "My Dog Eats First", a non-profit organization that serves the homeless and under served of Louisville and their pets.

I hope that every dog everywhere will know love and companionship and that is my inspiration and provides me with the determination and dedication needed to continue my education and experience.
