Animal Caretakers

Saira

Saira

Kennel Co-Supervisor

Saira was born in the Northern California area and loves living in So Cal. She is a huge fan of the outdoors and loves to go on walks or hikes. Her dogs love that activity too; she has a red-nose pitbull, Kane, and a black lab/pitbull mix, Zeus. If Saira isn't outdoors getting exercise, she may very well be indoors at the gym or working on her kickboxing skills (Muay Thai). Perpetuating the idea that you can't judge a kickboxer from their cover, Saira loves the movie Sixteen Candles and one of her favorite bands is Mumford & Sons. She loves everything about working at APCC, especially interacting with the animals and how every day is different. When she was little, Saira wanted to be a veterinarian, so we are proud to be involved in getting her onto the path of her childhood dream!

Katelyn

Katelyn

Kennel Co-Supervisor

Katelyn is one of the core members of our staff here at APCC, coming to us in 2015 and already moving up to be a co-supervisor of the kennel team. She joins the long and proud list of So Cal natives here at the hospital and loves where she lives. Katelyn loves spending time outdoors, spending time hiking and going to the beach. She has two dogs of her own (a rat terrier named Miky and a husky mix named Gusty), a cat named Lily and two birds: Raider and Zoey. If Katelyn were an animal herself, she would be a meerkat. Katelyn loves country music and her favorite tv show is The Voice. Though she wanted to be a veterinarian all her life, since high school she has decided to change her goal to becoming an RVT. We can only hope that we are a major player in helping her achieve that goal. She already loves working here at APCC, being part of a team that creates such a positive environment, is super friendly and keeps her busy. Katelyn loves being able to help take care of all of the animals here, and we can assure you, your babies are in good hands during her watch!

Rachael

Rachael

If you're noticing a trend, it is true... Rachael is yet another of our SoCal natives. Rachael is another of our employees cut from a different cloth: her favorite band is Pink Floyd and amongst her favorite movies and TV shows are Silence of the Lambs andThe Twilight Zone. Don't think that because she loves reading and watching movies that Rachael is just one to hang out at home; she loves dirtbiking and being out and about with her French Bulldog. If she was given the choice of any superhero power, Rachael would choose teleportation. Perhaps she would use that power to whisk herself away to her dream destination on the east coast: Maine. Rachael wanted to be a veterinarian or a news reporter when she was young. As a cat lover, she loves working here at APCC and loves how rewarding the job is and how lovely her co-workers are.

Abby

Abby

Abby was born in Gardena, CA and happily makes Orange County her home. She has strong ties to her family and thrives on their support and love. In her spare time, Abby loves to work out, spend time with her family and watch movies (especially Halloween-themed movies). Her favorite tv shows are Big Bang TheorySons of Anarchy and Mad Men. Abby has always felt a deep love for animals and since she was little, she has been rescuing stray kittens around her home. She loves the compassion that our entire staff has for all of the pets and that everyone genuinely cares for every patient. Abby has an infectiously good attitude and brings a joy to the job that not only makes every one around her happy, but spreads to your babies when they are here as well.

Rita

Rita

Rita joined our hospital during the summer of '15 and has been a great addition to the hard-working kennel team. When she isn't spending time at the gym or at work, it's a good bet you'll find her spending time with her Great Dane "Pickle" or even spending extra time with one of the PRC rescue dogs that are housed here at the hospital. If she was an animal, she thinks she would be a cheetah and if she could have any super hero power, she would want to be able to fly. When she was younger, she always wanted to be a law enforcement officer when she grew up, which is probably why she says 'Cops' is her favorite TV show. Good thing for us, Rita loves working here at APCC; enjoys waking up to do something that she loves, helping all of the animals that she loves. 

Reily

Reily

Reily is one of the newest members of our staff here at APCC. Reily is, you guessed it, a So Cal native. She loves being active and spending time in the outdoors, off-roading, camping and, most importantly: riding her horse. Reily's biggest passion in life is geared toward the world of horses and equine veterinary care. As a young girl, she always wanted to be a horse vet, and that goal is right on track for her. We may not handle the care of horses as part of our standard here at APCC, but she will definitely develop many usable tools to accomplish that here at the hospital. Reily's favorite band is Blink-182 and, clearly a vampire fan, two of her favorite tv shows are True Blood and Vampire Diaries. Reily loves working with all of the animals here at the hospital and we are hoping to see great things from her!

Brittany

Brittany

Brittany is one of our newest influx of animal caretakers here at APCC. She is another of our very outdoorsy types: loves to offroad and go wakeboarding when she can get away. On her days off, Brittany enjoys hiking, swimming at the beach and spending time with her boyfriend and their year old golden retriever, Riley. Brittany loves country music and her favorite TV show is "Hart of Dixie". A dancer for over 10 years, Brittany always wanted to grow up to be a Mom because of how supportive her own Mom was at all of her events. Brittany is loving her job here and enjoys meeting all of the new dogs and cats that visit. She loves working with her team and seeing all of the new and interesting things throughout the day.

Francesca

Francesca is a northern Orange County native who started with the hospital in spring of 2016. She loves to read and catch some of her favorite TV shows in her spare time. Her fave shows range from Big Bang Theory and Once Upon a Time to Game of Thrones and Outlander. One of three sibling sisters, Frankie would hands down choose Montana if she could live anywhere in the world. When she was young, she always wanted to become a veterinarian. Frankie loves being a part of the APCC family, getting to work with all of the "amazing people" and the animals that she quickly falls in love with. 

Hannah

Hannah keeps our streak of SoCal natives very strong and if she could live anywhere in the world, her choice would be Laguna Beach. A little of an indoor and outdoor lover, Hannah enjoys volleyball and hiking when she is not working, as well as working on art through drawing. She has a cat, Ivy, and a dog, Willow, that she shares with her boyfriend. One of Hannah's favorite things to do in her free time is going shopping; she loves those fun Target runs. Hannah also loves Gordon Ramsay; Kitchen Nightmares is her favorite show and she would choose a dinner with him if she could dine with any famous person. When she was little, Hannah always wanted to be a ballerina... but she is happy as can be getting to work with all of the animals here, whether they are your pets or the many rescue pets we work with.
