Linda Vogel, Veterinary Assistant

Linda has been in the veterinary field for many years. Prior to that, she was an intellectual property paralegal. Linda holds both a master's and bachelor's degree in international relations. Her keen passion for the animal - human bond inspired her to change paths and to start working with animals in 1996, where she was trained as a Veterinary Assistant. She has continued to bring loving compassion and excellent care to all the patients over the years. She is a devoted cat lover with five cats at home. She is also very active in feline rescue and loves to dedicate her time helping those cats without homes, making sure they have enough food and hopefully finding a loving home for them.

Linda is also an avid traveler, having visited more than sixty different countries. She takes at least one exotic vacation every year. Previous pursuits while vacationing have included, climbing dunes in the Sahara desert in Morocco, snorkeling off the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, trekking in the Himalayas, sand boarding in Namibia, and viewing the Northern Lights in Iceland and Greenland. Some of Linda’s favorite places have been South Africa, New Zealand, India, and Botswana. Linda also loves attending the theater and the opera at every opportunity. She is active in the field of immigrant rights and frequently volunteers in both Tucson, Arizona and Mexico with the Samaritans. She enjoys reading and taking classes, and she is always interested in exploring new adventures.

"As a young child, I always loved animals. I vividly recall the time I found a stray beagle wandering the streets as I was walking home from school. I had never had a dog, but I was quite concerned that this dog was homeless and that she would not have food to eat or a comfortable place to sleep that night. I decided to bring the dog home, explaining to my mother that it would only be "temporary". It would just be until I could find a permanent home for the dog. Needless to say, that dog, which I named Sugar, stayed in our home for fifteen years. Sugar turned out to be the first in a long line of dogs that I brought home over the years. My introduction to cats began when I heard that there were some kittens trapped in a neighborhood sewer. I felt compelled to try and save the kittens. I was so intent on finding homes for the kittens, even though I had never actually seen them, that I set off running from house to house, imploring anyone and everyone to please take a kitten! Unfortunately for me, my enthusiasm got the better of me, and I failed to notice a step I was approaching at breakneck speed... I tripped on the step and fell through the glass door to the house. I distinctly remember pleading with the neighbor whose door I had just destroyed, to please take a kitten. Moments later I noticed the damage I had done to my wrist, and I fainted. When I woke up in the hospital the first thing I did was to ask the doctor and nurse if they would please take a kitten!! It is this innate love of animals that inspired me to become a veterinary assistant!"
