Our Shelter Veterinarian

Dr. Marc (Marc Rosenberg, DVM) is our agency veterinarian. He’s on the staff at County Line Veterinary Hospital, and oversees the health of the animals that are in our care. He’s also patient, kind, and thorough – VAO is fortunate to have such an exceptional professional on our team!


Shelter Associates

Our animals are cared for by 6-8 Shelter Associates, employees who see to the cleaning of all kennels and cages, as well as feeding, dispensing of medications, and socialization/exercise of all of our animals. They also facilitate dog meets, counsel adoptions, and work at the front desk. We are grateful for their hard-work and dedication. We couldn’t do it without them!
