  • Fawn D

    Hi! I was born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand - such a beautiful country that I miss very much. Things I love to do is hiking with my pup, being outside, and reading murder-mystery books (I am 100% a crime junkie). Can't wait to see your pets when they come to AHOS!

  • Ashley , Veterinary Technician

    Hello, I’m Ashley. I have been a vet assistant for 1.5 years. I have had a passion for animals my entire life, especially marine life. I enjoy painting, hiking, and scuba diving. I also enjoy assisting on local marine research projects within Monterey Bay. In my spare time I like to play with my corgi puppy Odysseus. 

  • Brittney N
    Customer Service Representative

    Brittney grew up in Carmel Valley on 13 acres with lots of animals. After going to college in San Diego she moved up here, to Santa Cruz to be closer to home. She has always loved animals but realized she wanted to work in the veterinary field after she found her dog Brooks who was near death, abandoned in a ditch on the side of the road. Brooks is a now five years old and spends her days running around on the beach, giving lots of cuddles, showing off her tricks for treats, and taking up most of Brittney's bed at night. Most recently, Brittney rehabilitated an injured baby squirrel who she named Bandon, an Eastern Gray Squirrel. After some love and care Bandon was healthy enough to be released and now lives in the forest. Until she finds another animal in need she enjoys being part of the continued care of all the wonderful pets we see here at the hospital.

Prices are very fair especially for the care you are getting here! Highly recommend!"

  • "We had the best experience here! I have a 4-year-old pit bull, and the vet and vet techs were very helpful, knowledgeable, and sweet! The front staff was very kind as well!"
    Cristi | Hollister, CA
  • "Clean, modern facilities, great vets and kind, caring staff. I am so glad that I gave them a try. The staff is compassionate, caring, professional and skilled. Both of my adopted animals can be nervous with strangers, and everyone from the front desk staff to the techs and vets are just great with them both."
