Kenmore Animal Hospital is excited to add Deanna to our team! Deanna is one of our new LVT’s and she is a great addition to our team!

Growing up as a child, Deanna was always coming home with animals (a trait she inherited from her mom) ranging from strays, to rescues, to adoptions. These animals included dogs, cats, a canary, a hermit crab, hamsters, a painted turtle, rabbits, and fish. Deanna tried numerous careers without satisfaction. Her increasing and overwhelming urge to want to make a difference in animals’ lives led her to attend Medaille College for their Veterinary Technology Program; where she graduated with an AS in Veterinary Technology. Deanna has worked for the Erie County SPCA where she enjoyed caring for all the animals that came under her care. The most meaningful part for Deanna was being able to give each and every animal the love and compassion they deserved until they found their forever home. Currently she is a mom to 17 year old Little Guy, and 13 year old Ireland. She also enjoys volunteering her free time to spay & neuter clinics preformed by rescue groups and the Erie County Health Dept. Rabies clinics.



We’d like to introduce Kelly. Kelly is the newest edition to our LVT Team. She recently graduated from Medialle College as a Licensed Veterinary Technician and is a compassionate animal lover. When Kelly isn’t at Kenmore Animal Hospital she enjoys cuddling with her five cats and playing fetch with her Doberman and her cat that thinks he is a dog himself. Make sure you say Hi to Kelly the next time you are in!
