The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia will be getting a new associate veterinarian on Tuesday, June 11.
Dr. Viviana C. Rodríguez-Abudo will see clients at the Healthy Pet Clinic, which offers low-cost vaccines and other basic wellness services. She will also spay and neuter pets and work with the Humane Society’s rescue pets.
“She brings a unique mix of skills that are a wonderful complement to our existing services and, being fluently bilingual in Spanish, Dr. Rodriguez will be able to help us better meet the need of our Hispanic clients,” Dr. Jaime Feroli, the Humane Society’s medical director, said in a statement. “It’s obvious she is passionate about low-cost veterinary medicine and will definitely help our organization grow and further help our community.”
Rodriguez has served as a general practice veterinarian since 2011 in North Carolina and Georgia including, most recently, as medical director of Planned Pethood of Georgia. She got her undergraduate degree from the University of Puerto Rico, and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) from the Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine in Alabama.
“Veterinary medicine is my passion and my calling. I’ve been practicing as a veterinarian for more than six years and I’ve seen first-hand the need for a more economical alternative for veterinary wellness care so I am thrilled to join an organization that recognizes and supports high-quality, low-cost pet care,” Rodriguez said in a statement. “I am so excited to start making a difference in our community by becoming part of the HSNEGA team.”
The Humane Society is at 845 West Ridge Road in Gainesville.
