Dr. Ann Eliopulos
Dr. Ann Eliopulos (Dr. E.) has been practicing veterinary medicine for over 25 years. She grew up with many pets, but it wasn’t until she was going through a lot of personal loss as an adult that she adopted her first dog, Sheba, who was scheduled for euthanasia. Dr. E. Isn’t sure which one of them needed rescuing most, but has honored that dog and the many who came after that by committing to help as many pets as possible live their best lives. Prior to receiving her veterinary degree from U.C. Davis in 1997, she was a veterinary technician, Animal Control Officer, Director of an Animal Assisted Therapy program at Cornell and Assistant manager of an SPCA in New York. She has done extensive rescue work and was featured on CNN and in a documentary film for her early work with American Pit Bull Terriers. She has spent equal time working in Emergency and General Practice and also spent a few years doing house calls for sick Koi fish. When not at work, Dr. E. spends her time with a large animal family that includes dogs, cats, a tortoise and of course, Koi. She loves being in her garden, baking, making creative art projects, music and teaching Maeve, her rescued Belgian Malinois , how to dance and paddle board.
