Veterinarian & Owner
Although she was raised on a small farm surrounded by all sorts of animals, Dr. Peggy didn’t always know that she would work in the pet-care world. One day while driving to the University of Rochester to accept a managerial position, she began to wonder what she would do in a few years when her daughter moved away from home to begin college. All at once, a lightbulb went off: veterinary medicine was her true calling! From that day forward, Dr. Peggy dedicated herself to the animal-care profession and hasn’t looked back since.
Dr. Peggy graduated from the University of Illinois with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. She started working in a companion animal hospital after school, where she gradually found herself drawn to feline medicine. Dr. Peggy then made her way to Maine, where she signed on at her first feline-only practice; it wasn’t long before she returned to Rochester to work at another local cat-exclusive hospital and further build her knowledge of feline medicine. In February of 2003, she opened the doors of her very own clinic and has owned and operated All Cats Care Center ever since.
Medically, Dr. Peggy enjoys surgical work and the biology behind her patients’ bodily functions. Most of all, she enjoys interacting directly with her clientele; every day, she’s humbled to serve the area’s families with her expertise and compassion.
At home, Dr. Peggy lives with four wonderful cats of her own: Mr. Chubs, a former stray who lived at All Cats Care Center for a period of time; an elderly feline named Crazy Legs who still manages to climb onto chairs in her old age; Pipa, a sparkling black cat who enjoys hunting wild critters; and Milo, a lover of playtime who frequently instigates games of tag with his fellow housemates.
When she isn’t tending to the needs of the area’s cats here at the hospital or enjoying the company of her own feline friends, Dr. Peggy can be found spending time with her daughter, growing every size, shape, and color of plant and flower in her extensive backyard gardens, and attending wine seminars around the area.
Our Care Team
When Janet decided to join All Cats Care Center, she knew that it was the perfect opportunity to not just work with an amazing group of people, it was also a chance to continue working with and helping animals while making an impact on their lives!
Janet has several years of experience in the veterinary industry. One of her most memorable experiences, that still strikes an emotional chord with her, actually happened before she joined All Cats Care Center. She had been working at another animal hospital and a seriously injured dog came in who was a victim of pet abuse. Janet and the entire team weren't sure the dog would survive, but the team took her in and did their best. The doctor performed surgery and saved her life. The team named her Brandy. The ordeal also led to a new law being implemented that would ensure that every pet receives reasonable medical care, one that the staff at the practice refers to as “Brandy’s Law.”
Overall, Janet is ecstatic that she’s able to put her experience and knowledge to use. She relishes being able to show up to the hospital every day and help cats in need. Oh, and getting to play and cuddle with sweet-natured, adorable kittens all day is a pretty good bonus, too!
Improving the lives of animals has been a goal for Holly since she was a very young child. What better way to fulfill that goal than to work in the veterinary field? Today, as part of the All Cats Care Center team, Holly gets to live her dream every single day!
While attending school at Alfred State for Veterinary Technology, Holly joined the All Cats team as part of her preceptorship. It turned out to be such a good fit for everyone that she decided to stay on and continue her employment here. Professionally, Holly enjoys performing dental cleanings. She is currently studying to take the VTNE so she can officially become licensed.
Holly has lived in Webster her whole life with her parents, her brother and her sister. Her fur “children” include a cat named Peppermint, who loves sleeping and getting brushed, and three rats named Twix, Snickers and Butterscotch. They are very funny and love climbing on anything they can find.
Animals in general have always been a passion of Kayla’s and she’s always wanted to help improve their lives. However, one animal in particular sticks out as her favorite - cats. She loved the fact that All Cats Care Center focused strictly on furry felines, and knew right off the bat that working there would be a perfect fit for her. As a veterinary assistant, she gets to live out her dream of working with her favorite animals on a daily basis!
There are several aspects of working at All Cats Care Center that appeal to Kayla. For starters, she loves informing cat owners of the proper ways to care for their cats. Also, she feels rewarded whenever a client shares how thankful they are to have her tending to their pets, and how much their pet enjoys her.
Kayla grew up in Spencerport, NY in a house full of animals and people, which included her and her four siblings. She currently lives in a house filled with cats (surprise!), which include wild Clementine, sweetheart Aaron and the sassy Seal. Each one of these friendly felines has their own distinct personality and they keep Kayla on her toes.
In her free time, you’re likely to find Kayla studying as she’s in school pursuing her veterinary technician license. Ultimately, her goal is to learn more and improve the health and wellness of animals.
