Carrie has been working in the veterinary field for close to 28 years. At the beginning of her career, she worked with exotic animals, including birds. She has worked in various veterinary specialties over the course of her career, and currently is working with us here at SCVC.
Carrie has rescued and re-homed plenty of dogs and cats, but it wasn't until April of 2013 that she understood the need to help birds. She has fostered and placed four birds in their forever homes. She currently has two foster cockatoos still waiting to be adopted.
Carrie has owned (or been owned by!) her own cockatoo for 28 years and feels she has a special connection to them. Because she understands their behaviors and needs, she tends to specialize in fostering
