  • Tara V.
    Licensed Veterinary Technician/Supervisor/Rescue Coordinator
    I have been a Licensed Veterinary Technician since 2002. I was born and raised in Vermont, and moved to Las Vegas in 1998. I joined the Spay and Neuter Center team in 2009. I am a huge animal lover, and have a wide range of pets myself. Living in a large city, there is an extreme importance of spaying and neutering pets. I love working here and helping to control the pet overpopulation one day at a time.

  • Carolyn M.
    Veterinary Assistant/Supervisor
    I’m a mother of three fur babies whom I love dearly. In my spare time, my husband and I love to try new restaurants, and yes, I am a foodie! I’ve been a part of the Spay and Neuter Center team since April 2013 and have loved every minute of it. I worked with the owner, Taryn Griffith at another clinic prior to this place and took the opportunity to work for her here right away. She is an amazing, loving person, and working for her has been an absolute delight. Knowing we are educating the public about the importance of spaying, neutering, and vaccinating their pet, is very rewarding.

    My name is Shirley and I have been with the Spay and Neuter Center since 2009.

My favorite pastimes are eating and a catching a snooze whenever possible.
