Emilio– Hey humans, my name’s Emilio. My three brothers and I were abandoned on the doorstep of Speedway Veterinary in October of 2012 when I was only 8 weeks old. The staff took me in and I have kept them on their toes ever since.Emilio and the printerWhen I am not loving on clients or prowling for food, you can find me curled up on the printer in the lobby.  I enjoy introducing myself to our patients, chasing my brother Oliver around the clinic, and hunting that pesky red dot.  Oliver tells me it’s the humans playing games, but I have my doubts. The humans tell me I’m mischievous, but they all seem to love me a whole lot.

I’m Charley, Emilio’s annoying little sister.

I was brought in with 2 of my siblings in the spring of 2017 when I was 1 week old; malnourished, cold and a small chance of survival. Dr. Boyer and her staff were able to nurse me back to health, but unfortunately my siblings did not make it. Everyone here calls me a troll as I like to hide on top or behind things and glare judgingly at everyone, but isn’t that what I am supposed to do as a cat? It has taken me awhile to come out of my shell, but I am slowly becoming more brave and may one day even visit with the people who come through the door, until then I’ll leave the greeting and treat stealing to my older brother and let him get in trouble for it!

Tina_Pant_SVH
Hello! My name is Tina Pant, I was born in Long Beach, CA and moved to Tucson, AZ in 1990. I have three children, Michael, Jason, and Demetria. Four grandchildren and one great grandchild. I have such a love for animals I volunteered and became a foster mom when I could. Now that my children are grown I decided to go back to school and get my certificate as a veterinary assistant. Speedway Veterinary Hospital has become my second home, and I couldn’t have found a more compassionate place to work. I live with my three fur babies: Cowboy is a 12 yr old chow mix, Sadie is a 12 yr old Australian Shepherd mix, and Louie is a 7 yr old Boston Terrier. In my spare time I like to read, renovate my house and spend time refurbishing furniture.
Mackenzie Fuller I have been living in Arizona since July of 2015. The majority of my life has been spent on the east coast from Massachusetts to the sunny state of Florida. From a young age I had aspirations of having a career in veterinary medicine and started that dream as a veterinary technician in central Florida. Loving Arizona life, I am thrilled to have found such an amazing practice and have the opportunity to work with some phenomenal people here. I have two fur babies at home, a chihuahua named Neeka, and a fluffy cat named Mr. Jeffery. I also have a ball python named Rafael. In my spare time I thoroughly enjoy being outdoors, especially near water. I also am a bit of a gear head and enjoy tinkering with cars as well as play guitar.
Brittany Stilgenbauer I am a proud 5th generation Tucson native.

I am currently the proud mama to my 3 canine fur babies, Starla a 6 yr old chihuahua mix, Tyson a 4 yr old pit bull mix and our newest edition Morty a 15 yr old chihuahua. My dogs are my world.I also love cats and get my “kitty fix” everyday at work. I have always had a deep passion for working with special needs and geriatric animals, aggressive canines and fractious felines. I have been a veterinary technician since 2014. I have also been a proud dog foster mom for 12 yrs and have fostered over 30 dogs who have found loving, forever homes.

Hi! I am Mireya Peralta and I was born and raised in Tucson. Since I was a young girl, I have always had a special love and care for animals. I am very excited for all the things that I will learn and experience here at Speedway Veterinary Hospital. As I am working here at SVH, I am also in the midst of earning my bachelors in veterinary science from the University of Arizona. I aspire to be a small animal veterinarian. When I am not at in class, studying or at work, I enjoy spending my free time taking photos and going on walks with my two dogs, Max (Dachshund) and Rosie (Miniature Poodle).” Have a great day, Mireya
Kaleigh Molloy I have always loved animals, when I was a small child my parents would let me take in strays and it was my responsibility to give them medications they were prescribed, feed them and find them homes when they were healthy again. It was then I knew I wanted to work in the veterinary field, helping animals has always been the most rewarding feeling to me. Before receiving my veterinary assistant certificate I worked at an equine rescue for 3 years taking care of horses and a variety of other animals that came into the rescue. Working with strays and rescues taught me a lot of patience and understanding when it comes to handling animals and a lot about taking time to build trust especially with fearful animals and for that I am thankful. In the future it is my goal to return to school so that I can further my career in veterinary medicine. At home I own a pitbull mix named Banquet (after Coors Banquet) that I adopted in 2015. In my free time I still enjoy volunteering at the equine rescue, cooking, spending time with friends and family and taking Banquet to the park. I also love to travel and take road trips as much as possible.
