After 8 years of care and dedication to the medical needs of our pets, our Medical Director, Dr. Katie Emerson, is moving on to new pursuits. Her last day at Friends of Strays will be Dec. 22, 2023. We are grateful for her work here at Friends of Strays as the first full-time vet in the history of our shelter. We wish Dr. Emerson well in her future endeavors. 

We have begun recruiting for our next Medical Director in the hopes that there will be overlap for Dr. Emerson to help with the transition! Interested candidates can learn more here or email Dara, CEO, at
