MacKenzie, Healthcare Assistant, has always loved being with animals. As a child, she always had dogs, cats and even a horse. When she was old enough to get a job, she ended up getting a job at veterinary office as a kennel attendant. She would give daily meds and fed the boarding dogs and cats. She would also help the veterinarians and veterinarian technicians with appointments or X-rays. As she continued to work at the veterinary office she then got promoted to the kennel manager. She later continued her career and went to work full time with the SPCA as a veterinarian assistant at the shelter part. After being at the SPCA for about a year and a half she got offered the veterinarian assistant position at the clinic which included being in the surgeries with the doctor and helping out with wellness clinics as well as humane law cases. Her first humane law case was with the Washburn sheep that CAS rescued in 2022. It’s so amazing to see the sheep that CAS rescued all healthy and happy and living their best lives! She loves being around all different kinds of animals and is currently studying to become a veterinarian technician. On her spare time she pet sits for dogs and cats.
