Randolph Kraft, Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Kraft has been a constant in our practice since transferring here from Tacoma in 2007. A native of the West Coast, after earning his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1992 he spent many years in the Carolinas, adopting the beautiful mountainous homeland of his wife before selling his practice and heading west in a covered moving van for new adventures. He can still remember pulling out the day after 9/11, with so much hanging in the air, all across the country.

He makes his home in Lacey with his wife, an accomplished animal shelter veterinarian, artist, and mushroom forager, and their two sons who attend Evergreen Forest Elementary.

Although he has many pets, when asked if he has any dogs, he has always felt a bit surprised. It is like asking his wife if she has a bucket of yellow paint. It is then that he realizes every patient he sees becomes a little bit his own to look after. Their three cats, however, did not accept this answer, nor did the guinea pigs, ducks, chickens, a stray rabbit, quail, fish, turtles, an ancient and wise cockatiel, and all the wildlife that seem to swirl and dart around the Kraft yard, somehow knowing it is the place to be.

Dr. Kraft enjoys walking (or running) with his sons to school every day, as well as anywhere outdoors. He spends time writing, baking bread (a blue ribbon winner at the Washington State Fair), gardening with edible landscaping, is a 4-H leader, and plays many musical instruments. Vice President of the local community orchestra, he joins in regular volunteer performances at area senior care facilities.
