Dr. Rebecca Carroll has been with Dakin since 2019, having worked regionally for other shelters and practices in New England for the decade prior to this. She graduated from Ross University and Tufts Veterinary school in 2010 and completed an emergency medicine internship at Ocean State Veterinary Specialists in RI from 2014-2015.

She has experience volunteering with animal rescue and rehabilitation abroad in Nepal, Thailand, and Cambodia, and professionally has been working in shelter medicine for the last four years. Her interests lie in making veterinary medicine more accessible to the average person, supporting the human/animal bond, as well as emergency medicine and surgery.  Outside of work, she and her family enjoy hiking and camping in the great outdoors, and while at home enjoy the company of their two senior kitties, Masala and Turkelton.
