Stefanie Saddler, CVT
If at the tender age of five you had asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, without any hesitation I would have replied a Police Officer. But growing up with a very persistent mother whose love of animals outshined that of her kids it was insisted upon that one of her daughters work with animals. When a local veterinarian offered me the chance to train and work as a technician the very real fear of my mother allowed me to take this veterinarian up on her offer. And so I have remained for the last four years, and have enjoyed every minute of it. I have been involved in rescue organizations since before I could drive; fostering hundreds of kittens and dogs. I am the mother to a wonderful, snorting pug: Mathew Grady. I am also the humble servant to three cats who hate each other as much as they hate their canine siblings. While the world of law enforcement still calls out to me, I have put it on hold, focusing instead on the fuzzy, wet-nosed critters that have brought me so much joy over the years. (With IRAH since 3/2007).
