Alondra

Veterinary Assistant

Hi y’all! My name is Alondra and I am a newcomer to North Carolina from upstate NY. I have two dogs, 2 cats, and a hedgehog. I like to call it my mini zoo. I don’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t love animals. Working here has only made that love grow. I am currently pursuing a veterinarian technician degree, and I hope that once that is achieved, I can continue my education further in this field. In my free time I love being outside, whether that means going to the beach, hiking, or just sitting on my deck. I’m always trying to find something new to do or experience. I’m so thankful to be working in this hospital with the amazing doctors and fellow coworkers, and of course the clients and their fur-babies make it ten times better. I look forward to continuing working and helping all the animals that come through our door!

Jose

Veterinary Assistant

A proud resident of NC, Jose enjoys living life to the fullest, whether it be backpacking in Tennessee, learning a new language, or simply serenading with his guitar. He graduated from Davidson College with a degree in French and Francophone Studies, and spent his time there volunteering in hospice care, singing with the local band, and reading philosophy. It has been a delight working at All 4 Paws. Caring for the pets of others takes a lot of hard work, passion, and grace; Jose is glad to be surrounded by a team that practices these traits.
