Sheraine – President & Owner
Beginning at a very young age, Sheraine surrounded herself with animals and made them a part of her family. In February 1985 at age 18, Sheraine was hired as a receptionist by Woodcliff Animal Hospital in Chatworth, CA. Two years later, Sheraine became clinic manager of this state-of-the-art 12,000 sq. ft. clinic. In January 1992, Sheraine 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 Sheraine realized the importance of these services to the community. In April 2001 after moving to Las Vegas, NV, Sheraine was hired by the Lied Animal Foundation, a 35,000 sq. ft. animal shelter, Humane Society, and spay/neuter clinic. Sheraine was hired as clinic manager over the spay/neuter and vaccination clinic, and soon became shelter manager as well.
In September 2002, Sheraine moved to Tucson, AZ. Realizing the need in Tucson for low-cost services, and having a great desire to help reduce pet overpopulation in our city, Sheraine 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, Sheraine successfully opened a large spay/neuter clinic at Craycroft & 22nd. In November of 2011, Sheraine opened ABC Pet Care Clinic, a full-service pet care facility offering quality services at a low cost. Along with the full service veterinary and spay/neuter clinic, she also opened two satellite vaccination clinics—one located in central Tucson, and one on the south side of Tucson. In June 2016 Sheraine expanded the South Vaccination clinic to now offer Pet Wellness Care! Sheraine’s goal and ambition is to reduce Tucson’s pet overpopulation “one spay at a time”! Sheraine has 2 beautiful daughters and a Maltese mix named Anikin Skywalker, and a Wheaten Terrier mix named Sandy.
