Dr. Jennifer Feeney has loved animals since she was a little girl. She dreamed of being a veterinarian since she played doctor with her stuffed animals and rescued butterflies from her yard to try to mend their wings or turtles on the road to glue their shells.
A New Jersey native, Dr. Feeney attended Seton Hall University before graduating from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1994. She has worked for several veterinary hospitals in and around New Jersey including a 24-hour emergency clinic and a large local animal shelter.
She was awarded the Good Neighbor Award from Henry Schein Animal Health in honor of her dedication and contribution to sharing the value of animals to residents in her local community. She is a huge advocate of shelter medicine and volunteers her time every week at Somerset Regional Animal Shelter and St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center, helping keep pets waiting for their new homes healthy and adoptable. She is Elite Fear Free Certified as well as Feline Friendly Certified, and working on becoming NAVC Human-Animal Bond Certified.
Dr. Feeney is married and lives in Bridgewater with her husband, Kevin, and their two sons. Her favorite past times are reading, writing (she's currently publishing her first book, a young adult fantasy novel), Disney, horseback riding, yoga and baking all things chocolate.
She shares her life with some fantastic rescued pets, including too many cats to name (seven at the moment), a couple of silly mutts, some adopted hermit crabs and a beautiful aquarium of tropical fish. If she could, she'd have chickens, goats, a horse and some beehives too! You just can't have too many pets!
