DCHS welcomes Maddie's Clinical Instructor of Shelter Medicine and Shelter Medicine Interns!

Dane County Humane Society (DCHS) is thrilled to welcome Dr. Uri Donnett, Dr. Bridget Holck and Dr. Melissa Gall!

Dr. Donnett will be based at DCHS as the Maddie’s® Clinical Instructor of Shelter Medicine. He is working closely with our two Maddie’s® interns and over 50 UW Shelter Medicine Program veterinary students doing ambulatory rotations at DCHS to have an excellent learning experience while practicing lifesaving shelter medicine. Our Animal Medical Services team of veterinarians, veterinary technicians, veterinary students and volunteers cares for over 5,000 companion animals a year in addition to patients at our Wildlife Center! In 2017, they performed 8,278 medical exams, 1,728 spay/neuters, 190 dentals and 72 other surgeries!

DCHS is also excited to introduce two new veterinarians on our Animal Medical Services team! Dr. Holck and Dr. Gall recently joined DCHS and the UW Shelter Medicine Program as Maddie’s® Shelter Medicine Interns. Maddie's Interns serve at shelters like DCHS who have achieved a 90% or higher save rate (animals released by means of adoption, redemption and transfers out).

Thank you to Maddie’s® Fund for funding these positions to help us provide world-class shelter medicine to over 5,000 companion animals each year.
