Kaitlyn – Kennel Technician

My name is Kaitlyn April Gaffey. I have lived here in Denton, Texas my whole life. I just graduated from Lake Dallas High School in May, then started working at DVC about 3 months ago. Animals have always been a huge part of my life and I am so blessed that I am helping animals feel better as they did for me when I was sick with leukemia. I have five dogs that are all rescued, and a cat. Mia my Rottweiler holds a very special place in my heart because she was my dog from the very beginning and she never left my side when I was sick. When I have free time I love to go volunteer at Denton animal shelter to  love on all the animals and walk dogs to give them some one on one time. I love working at Denton Veterinary Center   because it allows me to work with animals all day long and having a supportive staff that is uplifting and positive . I am so blessed that I am apart of the DVC team!
