Shane - President-Owner


Beginning at a very young age, Shane surrounded herself with animals and made them a part of her family. In February, 1985 at age 18, Shane was hired as a receptionist by Woodcliff Animal Hospital in Chatworth, CA. Two years later Shane became Clinic Manager of this state-of-the-art 12,000 sq ft clinic. In January, 1992 Shane moved to Durango, Colorado, where she helped to establish and build Bakers Bridge Veterinary Clinic. Bakers Bridge Clinic offered many low-cost services, and it was there that Shane realized the importance of these services to the community. In April, 2001 after moving to Las Vegas, NV, Shane was hired by the Lied Animal Foundation, a 35,000 sq ft Animal Shelter, Humane Society, Spay/Neuter Clinic. Shane was hired as clinic manager over the spay/neuter and vaccination clinic, and soon became Shelter Manager as well. In September, 2002 Shane moved to Tucson, AZ. Realizing the need in Tucson for low-cost services, and having a great desire to help reduce pet over-population in our city.....Shane soon formed the corporation and built Animal Birth Control of Tucson, Inc, in 2003, with a temporary location at Grant and Stone. In August 2005, Shane successfully opened a large spay/neuter clinic at Craycroft & 22nd. In June 2009 a second spay/neuter clinic was opened at Valencia & I-19 (Midvale Park). In November of 2011, Shane and her partner Kirsten opened up ABC Low-cost Petcare clinic, a "full-service" petcare facility offering quality services at a low-cost. Shane's goal and ambition is to reduce Tucson's pet overpopulation "One spay at a time"!! Shane and her family have a Maltese mix "Anikin Skywalker, a Brussels Griffon "Pismo, a Shih Tzu mix "Humphrey", a Wheaten Terrier mix "Sandy" and a recent addition..Terrier mix named "Maliboo" !!

I was born in California and then was raised in Tucson. Since I was a little girl I have always had a soft spot in my heart for animals. I enjoy working in the veterinary field and being able to help animals and being associated with people who care as much as I do! I only hope to one day to be able to do more for our furry friends and will continue to encourage people to adopt and spay and neuter!!!
