Carl Hudson, Shop Cat
Carl was born in a backyard in Red Hook, Brooklyn in 2007. He is the front-of-house shop cat for GVAH, occasionally assisting with reception, but mostly napping in his donut at the front desk. Carl enjoys sniffing cat carriers, chasing his brother Archie, and updating his Facebook page. He has asked us to add that he is also very soft.
Archie Hudson, Shop Cat
Archie was born in a backyard in Red Hook, Brooklyn, in 2007. He is the shop cat behind the scenes at GVAH. Only a select few clients have ever seen him as he prefers to keep out of sight and doze in the back room until after closing. But when night falls, he springs into action, chasing his brother Carl around the hospital, front and back.
Eric Shepherd, Reception
Eric grew up in a family of animal lovers. “As far back as I can remember we always had pets. I have photos with all of them.” Eric moved to NYC by way of Michigan in early 2001 and has worked in the animal-care industry since 2002. Eric is an avid cook, and will very happily tell you what he’s planning to make for dinner, though he may or may not invite you over to sample it.
Jason Wugalter (Technician)
Born and raised on Long Island, Jason grew up having dogs and exotic pets. When he was a teenager, he worked at a local veterinary clinic and that experience sparked his passion to be part of a veterinary medical team. He says “It’s a great feeling to help sick animals through the good and bad. I forward to each and every day I come to work!”
Krystal Yu (Technician)
Born and raised in Queens, NY, Krystal has a strong love for animals and graduated from Cornell with a BS in Animal Science. She has worked at GVAH since 2005 and everything she knows about teaching was learned here. She doesn’t have pets of her own because of building regulations, but she fills that void by sharing her love with the many pets she takes through her successful freelance petsitting business. Outside of work, Krystal can be found snowboarding away the winter season, feeding her inner foodie around the city, and making the most of what the city has to offer with her friends.
