National Mutt Day

This special day was created to be celebrated on two dates per year, to raise awareness of the plight of mixed breed dogs in shelters around the nation, as approximately 80% of dogs in shelters are mixed breeds. Most pure breeds that end up in the shelter are generally rescued quickly by either the public wanting a “less expensive” pure bred dog or by a pure breed rescue. The day’s mission is to educate the public about the sea of mixed breed dogs that desperately await new homes and to celebrate the amazing characteristics that the mix of breeds creates in each individual dog.

Dr Adkins Joins CAC!!!

Being part of a military family, Dr. Adkins was born in Tennessee and moved around the U.S.; though she spent the large majority of her youth in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. Her love of animals was apparent at a young age, when at 5 years old, she declared a desire to become a zoologist to study and help panda bears. She also had many childhood pets including dogs, guinea pigs, and gerbils. Dr. Adkins stayed close to home for her undergraduate degree, attending Georgia College and State University, where she pursued many interests, including music, art, and college level soccer. She earned a B.A. in Mass Communication and shortly afterward moved to New York City to launch her first career path as an advertising account executive. After working for a few years, Dr. Adkins felt a need to go back to her roots and find a career that incorporated her lifelong love of animals. She moved back to Atlanta and began volunteering at the Atlanta Humane Society, working at a local emergency animal hospital, and taking additional college coursework to apply for veterinary school. Dr. Adkins received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Georgia. Following veterinary school, she moved to Washington, DC to complete a one year rotating internship in small animal medicine at Friendship Hospital for Animals. Dr. Adkins’ professional interests include dentistry, surgery, dermatology, preventive care, behavior, shelter medicine, and animal welfare. Dr. Adkins enjoys educating her clients on how to help their furry family members live healthy, happy lives and is focused on providing compassionate care for her patients.

Dr. Adkins shares her home with a sweet, gentle, adopted hound mix named Brody. In her spare time, she enjoys being outdoors (hiking, biking, camping), yoga, reading, cooking, volunteering at local animal shelters, and spending time with friends and family.

Dr Tew Joins CAC!!!

  • Clarendon Animal Care

Dr. Tew is a native of the Midwest with roots in Iowa and Missouri. She grew up with many family dogs and cats, and while working for her family veterinarian during college she was quickly set on her career choice. Dr. Tew earned a BS in Biology from Park University in Kansas City, and then went to the University of Missouri  (Go Tigers!!) where she graduated with her DVM degree in 2006. During her first year as a veterinarian, she completed an internship in equine ambulatory practice at The Ohio State University.  Although she loved it, continuing with equine practice was not in the cards so she turned to small animal medicine and hasn’t looked back.  Dr. Tew’s professional interests include preventive care, dentistry, feline medicine (especially senior kitties), pain management, and internal medicine. Beyond medicine, she loves building relationships with her clients and patients and educating clients how to best care for their furry family members.

Dr. Tew lives in Leesburg with her Pointer mix, Stewart, and her former tabby farm cat, Emmitt. In her spare time, you will most often find her in her kitchen or backyard garden, at yoga, reading in or near a body of water, and most importantly, spending as much time as possible with her two adorable nieces, family, and friends.

Dr Darleen Nath's Last Day :(

Dr Nath is leaving us for Houston. We have no idea how that hot, concrete city can drag her away from us - but apparently her husband's new job was enough to do it.

We are SO sad to see her go, but wish her and her growing family the best in Texas. If you're in the area, stop by - give her a hug - and let her know how much she means to the CAC family.

She is truly one of a kind and will be missed!!!
