It always has been second nature for Molly to care for animals in need. She has actually spent her entire working life caring for animals. She started out working in a barn in high school before working at a private show barn during her college years. After receiving a Wildlife Biology degree at college, she went to work at a zoo in Maine. She loved the job where she tended to black bears, a bobcat, Eurasian eagle owls, and even a herd of deer. However, driving to Maine during the harsh winters took a toll on her so she started sending out her resume. She joined the team at Milford Veterinary Hospital team in 2012. Molly’s favorite part of the job is spending one-on-one time with the dogs and cats. She keeps them entertained by playing fetch or helping with grooming. At home, Molly has one pet of her own. Jeffrey is an English bulldog puppy who likes to run around the house like his tail is on fire. He commonly runs into couches and walls, growling and barking the whole time!
