HART for Animals is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Katlyn Weimer, DVM, to the Bredel Veterinary Clinic at the HART Animal Center. Dr. Weimer joined the HART team on June 17, and is responsible for the health and wellbeing of dogs, cats and pocket pets. In addition, Dr. Weimer will be managing the health of the adoptable animals in the HART Adoption Wing, including the spay/neuter surgeries prior to adoption.
Raised in Michigan, Dr. Weimer spent most summers at the home of her grandparents in Oakland. She holds a B.S. in Biology from Macomb Community College, a B.A. from Walsh College of Business, and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Michigan State University, College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Weimer interned at HART in 2016, during her second year in veterinary school and has a keen interest in shelter medicine.
The Bredel Clinic is a full-service veterinary center providing consultations, examinations, surgeries, vaccinations, spay/neuter surgeries, dentals, radiographs, and lab tests for dogs, cats and pocket pets. As part of its mission to protect the lives of all animals, the Bredel Clinic will continue to offer no-cost spay/neuters for qualifying families through their Lifesaver program, funded by the Maryland Spay and Neuter Grants Program. Low-cost spay/neuters are also available for residents in nearby states.
In announcing the new veterinarian, HART’s Bredel Veterinary Clinic Director, Dr. Jessy Vandevender, noted that 92% of HART’s total revenue goes directly into the care of the animals rescued by HART. She added, “In addition to our excellent service, our clinic and boarding clients have the satisfaction of knowing that their fees go to save the lives of homeless animals in our region.”
