Erin Fellows

Veterinary Assistant
Raised in Georgia, on 5 acres, with a variety of animals, my love of all creatures big and small started very young. At age 15 I was volunteering with a large animal veterinarian. Upon moving to North Port I started volunteering with the Venice Wildlife Center as a squirrel foster mom. At home, the house if full. I have 4 parrots, 3 dogs (all rescues) and a torte-shell cat named Bean. Day to day my knowledge and experience with animals grow. I look forward to meeting you and your furry friends.
