Hunter

Hunter

Kennel Assistant

Hunter started working on ACAC in April 2022. His favorite part of veterinary medicine is being with animals all day and spending time with them and comforting them whether they’re just scared of being at the clinic for a check-up or are going into surgery or coming out of surgery. One of the great things about All Creatures Animal Care is he has an excellent opportunity to be with a wide variety of patients from dogs and cats to snakes and lizards.

Hunter graduated in 2018 from Louisiana Tech University with a Major in Animal Science and a Concentration in Pre-Vet.

In his spare time, he enjoys cuddling with his little lab-hound mix, Alita, and spending as much time with her as possible. Aside from that, most of his spare time is spent with his family and reading. When not doing any of that, he likes to go outdoors and do some target shooting.

As he mentioned above, he has one dog, a lab-hound mix that he adopted from the 4Paws dog shelter over in Ruston, Louisiana. She’s been with him for almost two years now and everyone in his family loves her to death. She gets in trouble a lot but she knows they love her too much to stay mad at her for too long. Alita and Hunter’s practice commands when they’re not exploring the woods around where they live.

A personal favorite movie of Hunter involving animals is the classic 1995 animated movie, Balto, about a brave half-wolf half-dog canine that helps deliver medicine to an isolated Alaska town. Fun fact it is, very loosely though, based on true events and a dog that was actually named Balto.

A fun fact about Hunter is that he always tries to make the patients feel comfortable when they are dropped off for appointments, staying after surgery, etc. He tries his hardest to treat the patients like his own dog and make them feel relaxed and safe.
