Our Pennsylvania Veterinarian
Laura Zehnder Jones, DVM
House Call Veterinarian
Dr. Laura Zehnder Jones grew up in New Jersey but pursued her education in Virginia by graduating from James Madison University in 2002 and obtained her DVM from the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 2006. After initially working in Virginia, Laura moved to Pennsylvania where she now resides with her two rescued dogs, Barley and Amber, and her husband, Andrew. Laura enjoys being a veterinarian, because it allows her to combine her interest in science and medicine with her love of animals and those who care for them. Laura's favorite aspects of veterinary medicine are the complexities of internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, preventative medicine, and the human-animal bond. She is passionate about promoting adoption/rescue to help our animal companions who are the most in need. Laura's hobbies include hiking, painting, gardening, and updating her house.
Amy's love of animals started at an early age, as early as 5 yrs old. She would bring home turtles, frogs, birds, lost dogs - you name it! Growing up in the country, Amy was taught a true love and appreciation for all animals. After working for 10+ years in corporate America as a project manager, Amy felt like something was missing. She wanted to find a job that could not only utilize her experience in project and office management but incorporate her love of animals as well. That's when Amy's path crossed with VETdispatch! She lives in Long Valley, NJ where she shares her home with her wonderful boyfriend, Hugh, as well as their two black cats Chloe and Cakes (and any other animals that may be passing by).
Celina has always had a passion for helping animals. Her passion for animals really sparked after adopting Dyson, her dog. She has volunteered at a few local shelters and is currently in the process of receiving her certificate for veterinary assistant online at Penn Foster College. She shares her home with her cat, Velvet, and dog, Dyson.
Ever since Sarah was little, she has had a passion for helping animals. Having pet sat and volunteered at local animal shelters, Sarah has had the pleasure of caring for all kinds of animals throughout her lifetime. She considers her own pets to be family, and she knows first hand how hard it can be when they get sick, and how traumatic the vet experience can be. After discovering VETdispatch for her pets, she wanted to be part of the organization that shares her desire to give animals the care they deserve. Sarah lives in Livingston with her family, her dog Boo, and her two cats Maxwell and Prudence. She is currently studying Sustainability Science at Montclair State University in hopes to someday help all living things on a global scale.
