Melissa Watson
Veterinary Assistant

I have always had a passion for animals and have always wanted to help and care for them. I eventually made the career change and achieved my animal assistant certificate. I have been volunteering at the SPCA for 2 years, both in the spay/neuter clinic and participating in their fostering program. I have a border collie/shepherd cross named Anna and a tabby cat named Baxter. My pets are my family and I pride myself in treating everyone else’s furry, feathered, or scaled family members with the same love and compassion I treat my own!
