Dr. Joseph Shrack
DVM Medical Director
Dr. Shrack grew up in Western Connecticut but moved to Virginia for a brief period of time before heading back to Eastern Shore. He attended UCONN, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science. When he was ready for the next challenge, Dr. Shrack went to Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine for a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Shrack has a 17-year-old cat named Willow, and in his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, traveling the world, and cycling.
Dr. Mary Offutt
Dr. Offutt grew up in New Haven County, CT, and she attended the University of New Hampshire for her undergrad with a degree in Marine Biology. Her love of animals was sparked when she interned at The Marine Mammal Center in California. She then moved to the UK for veterinary school at the Royal Veterinary College, where she stayed until the pandemic brought her back to the US.
When Dr. Offutt isn’t at work, you may find her lounging with her cat named Macaroni, who is very opinionated. She also loves playing ultimate frisbee with friends, spending time with family, and anything aquatic.

I like to watch bird TV and beg for treats. I also love to ask for pets and then bite the hand that has dared to pet me. I have been slowly working on my weight loss journey, much to my dismay.
Winnie , Cat Staff
I walk crooked, so I see the world from a different perspective. I am curious but still learning to be more confident. I also love to hang out with my best friend, Callie.
Callie , Cat Staff
